Headline of the week: FIRE DESTROYS SUN

The Red LionFrom CAMRA newspaper, What’s brewing.

A closed pub listed in CAMRA’s National Inventory of Heritage Pubs has been ravaged by fire. The Rising Sun, Kirkstall Road in Leeds, which served as a furniture store in recent years, was famed for its gin palace interior, which the current operators had kept, more or less, intact….

Admittedly, the headline doesn’t beat “Far-right extremists chased through London by women dressed as badgers“.

The photo shows a “gin palace” style pub which is not the RIsing Sun in Leeds (before or since the fire), I hasten to add.
