About the Pub

Known for its folk music and challenging Thursday quiz. Picture of bombers decorate the walls in tribute to the WW2 pilot and previous landlord who gave this traditional local boozer its name.

Historic Interest

The large major change to the interior was in 1953. It is little changed since then apart from the adding of a small room at the back which was previously private quarters. There have only been three licensees in the past 100 years – ex-Bomber Command Pilot, Joe Fagan ran the pub from 1947 to 1985 becoming Tetley’s longest serving landlord. A new sign was erected in 1985. This was replaced in 2008 with a sign which shows a photo of Joe against a bomber. This after the previous sign rotted. Joe died only a few weeks after passing on the tenancy to the current Landlord, Tom Boulding. The front left room is a 1953 amalgamation of two small rooms. The walls were covered in full height ply panels and the fixed seating looks to date from then. Front windows have ‘Public’ and ‘Lounge’ etched and frosted panels. The only change here is the cutting of a doorway at the rear to give better access to the toilets. On the front right is a tiny snug originally called the dram shop – a pub room name only seen in the Sheffield area (the wording appears in the ceramic exterior of the Ship, Shalesmoor). The snug has a very old counter and the walls are covered with ply panelling from 1953. It has a ‘Fagan’s’ etched and frosted exterior window and retains its door with the figure ‘1.’ The main bar counter has ply panelled front from 1953 and the bar back is mostly from 1953 with some glass shelves. One fridge has replaced some of lower shelving. The row of small leaded glazed panels above the bar counter were added in c.1986. The rear room was a private parlour brought into use by Fagan and has a hatch to the side of the servery. There is also a long and complicated story as to why the sign over the door says, in Japanese, "We install and service hangovers."
