Church Inn

Yesterday we lamented the demise of the Cheshire Cheese public house which stood on Market Street and was one of Hydes great pubs for atmosphere and characters, especially on friday nights and at weekends.

Today is the turn of the Church Inn. 
This was another extremely busy pub.


 The Church Inn closed its doors around 2006 then became Tylers after it reopened and from then went on to be Route 66. Neither of them were ever as popular as the Church Inn was in its prime.

Another pub sadly missed.

I wish the Church was still open. They used to be a great crowd who drank in here in the 1970s.

Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand
your stuff previous to and you are just too magnificent. I really like
what you've acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can't wait to read much more from you.
This is really a tremendous site.

Let's never forget Eddie and Sheryl. Though they only moved up the road they made the 'Church' great again. Eddie was the best cook for the pool and darts teams. Everyone looked forward to playing there for the atmosphere and the food.
