The only pub remaining in Lidget green is set to close its doors sometime in december.
The pub has seen a dramatic loss in custom with foreign shops opening nearby selling cheap and counterfeit alcohol and cigarettes. Pub landlady Maggie Johnson said how can i afford to carry on im selling beer at cost price to bring the locals in but some only come for the tokens and cheap beer, Then they go to the shop for cheap beer and some sneak it in here, cheeky buggers
One regular who didnt want to be named said she was the best landlady ever and a lot agreed but how can she compete with these shops, then stopping the interview to go to the foreign shop for a cheap can of full strength lager at £1
It will be sad to let it go but just hope it doesnt turn into a mosque or something or another asian super market.
Another local of 40 yrs said it was because of all the bradford city scarves around the bar. Im fucking leeds not bradford.
