The Fletchamstead pub was on the corner of Fletchamstead Highway and Standard Avenue opposite where the Standard Motors used to be. It is currently a second-hand car showroom.

Just as I remember it MR, the fishing club had its headquarters there. Where else to tell the tales of the one that got away? Lovely bunch of men who introduced me to fishing, leave at 5am to wherever the venue was, tackle up and fish for 4hrs, weigh in to see who won then back home. Every Sunday. Because I was an apprentice they would not let me "chip" in for petrol and sneak me in without paying the bank fee and buy me a drink after. Thumbs up oops, i used to work part-time in the "Fletch" as well, saving to buy my first house. Edited by member, 9th Dec 2017 7:58 am

Great pic. MR, thank you, was that all tiled at the front? I am sure my mum, May Toseland used to be in the ladies darts team at the Brickies. Take care all, bad weather due. Roll eyes Edited by member, 9th Dec 2017 10:20 am

Looks like it, Dreamtime - here's a link to Google Street View, showing that the tiles have been replaced - and someone's pinched a door - and the bike! Oh my

Walked past the old Butts Retreat earlier, closed. It opened up recently as The Hamptons bar and grill promising Live Music, DJ's etc. Was a little surprised to see a note on the door saying it has been repossessed by the owners. Looks like no-one can make a go of it anymore. So surprised given the location right by the rugby ground. Another one bites the dust again.

Shame - I thought it had only just reopened?! As you say I've always thought it would get a good trade from the rugby. Perhaps someone needs to open it up as a proper pub / sports bar. Wonder who the owners are?

Yes it had Neil. Was open for about 2 weeks max I'd say. Popped in for a beer opening night. There was a handful of people in. Some for food, some for beer. Staff were really nice and the food looked decent enough. They even handed out flyers and came over to the table to say what their plans were. Sports bar would be a good plan but I'd have thought it'll end up being demolished. It has a fairly chunky piece of land there if you include the car park and garden. It does seem like someone is living there though. There were lights on upstairs so maybe being let separately. I don't think Enterprise own it anymore, even they wouldn't have let it stay boarded up for so long before re-opening. I suspect they offloaded it at some point.

I suppose the rugby team are only there on alternate Saturdays so what trade can they expect for the remaining 13 days.
