Another one bites the dust

Barely had I finished burbling on about closed pubs in Woking when another one bit the dust. The pub that was last called 'The Station' but known to those of us who've been around a while as 'The Stabbage' is shut and boarded up.

The nickname comes from the days when the pub was called 'The Old Stillage' and someone was stabbed to death there one xmas eve. I'd visited the pub a few times over the years, it was OK and did serve proper beer but I can't say I was ever really taken with the place. Apparently it had got a bit rough by the time it closed which can't have helped with attracting trade.
