Some have undergone revamps and rebrands and are still serving loyal customers, just under a different name.
Others, like the estimated 400 boozers that closed for good across the UK last year, have sadly called time at the bar forever.
Many are knocked down to make way for development, others are converted into shops or flats.
But though they may be gone, they’re not forgotten – how many of these lost pubs of Chesterfield do you remember drinking in?
1. The Terminus
The Terminus used to sit on Chatsworth Road next door to what is now Brookfield School. Called the Terminus because of where the tram lines used to end, it was ironically the starting point for hardy drinkers attempting the infamous Brampton Mile pub crawl.

3. Painted Wagon
The Painted Wagon was a popular, if sometimes interesting, town centre haunt on Cavendish Street just outside the ABC Cinema that later became Zanzibar and finally the Department nightclub.
4. Ritter's Bar
Ritters Bar on St Mary's Gate is today home to the Galleon Steakhouse.
