The Garden Ladder sadly closed last Thursday 10th April after a great few years trading - it was the first place to give a different feel to Green Lanes and it will be missed. The great success that Jam in the Jar is enjoying might have been a factor but let's wish all the staff well and look forward to whatever takes its place....
I thought it was naff and 'diversity' is supplied much better by Jam in the Jar who are genuinely doing something different. Hopefully the new pub will have a more interesting beer, food and ambiance than did the GL.
*nod* I liked it, but it always felt more like sitting in a shop-front than an actual pub. And we stopped going when they stopped doing the roasts.
So what's up next do we reckon. Betting shop or Turkish restaurant? Place your *cough* bets now.
which new bar are you talking about?
It was the only bar around here that felt like a normal locals pub.
Thanks for letting us all know, Russell. Very sad.
Thanks Andy. That's good to hear.
Good to hear! Who are the new owners?
