The Jubilee on Carlton Road (Now gone) was built in 1977. There's one at Colwick opposite side to the Rabbit Hutch Houses, that was built pretty recent.

Dunno about the Ponderosa, but I have been to Bonanza - it is in Utah, the site of the only commercially mine-able deposit of Gilsonite!

I reckon Den's suggestion of The Arrow in Arnold is a decent shout. Although built on the site of the original Arrow, it was a completely new pub from ground up. My guess would be is that it was built in around 1998.

Just asking the question as I don't know but isn't there a reasonably new pub at Castle Marina on the right just as you drive in from Castle Boulevard? (Not the Exchange/Baltimore).

EDIT: The Boathouse

I guess you are referring to "The Boathouse", which is on the right immediately after the Marina where all the boats are for sale. I know that place has been there since at least the late 90s.

(And the Baltimore/Exchange has changed its name again, and is now called the Water's Edge)

Not actually in Nottingham but not far away, the General Havelock in Ilkeston, once known as Finn McCouls and previously known as General havelock is re-opening this week, ready for Ilkeston fair. Drove past today and its name was being put over the door. think this was mentioned elsewhere on here with a link to This is Nottingham where they mentioned the discovery of an old tiled floor.

Weve seen Pubs closing down and Supermarkets taking over the buildings.

I was in Hucknall on Sunday, and I see the old Coop Supermarket at the end of

Watnall Road, has closed down and is now a Witherspoons.

Err... is that GK?

Or maybe the Longbow...

The Robin does nothing. I don't know how it stays open. Not a useful site re access for future development though.

One bit of good news for Mablethorpe (and that does'nt happen very often) The Eagle is re-opening.

That's great news, I can remember the Eagle way back in the early 60's, when me & younger sister would be left to play outside with the 'Bottle of Pop & Bag o' crisps' whilst Mam & Dad were inside. Not cruelty to kids at all in them days, family rooms were pretty much unknown, so it was better than being left in the caravan/bungalow or whatever we'd rented that year!!

I recall Elvis Presley's Wooden Heart played repeatedly on the 'Bel-Ami' in the bar, also a song called 'Baby Sittin' Boogie', don't recall who by, but may Google it later on.......... slywink
