Sheffield Pub News - February 2006
The historic Yorkshire Grey pub in Sheffield city centre has closed its doors for the last time. Built in 1833, the pub has now been boarded-up in preparation for its demolition to make way for the development of St Paul's Place. A new development of 250 luxury apartments, offices, cafe-bars, restaurants, a 500-space multi-storey car park and two new public squares, St Paul's Place is the commercial element of the £130m Heart of the City project.
Local members of the Campaign for Real Ale have voted the Carlton at Attercliffe the winner of their Pub of the Month award for February 2006, an award which highlights pubs in the area that serves a good pint of real ale at a reasonable price in comfortable and friendly surroundings.
The article below is taken from the latest issue of Sheffield CAMRA's newsletter "Beer Matters", and contains more information about the pub and the award, which will be presented at the pub on Tuesday evening. Bob, the landlord, who is quite passionate about the way he runs his pub, is putting on a bit of a celebration, with all the real ale on at just £1 per pint, a buffet supper and a bottled beer raffle.
Landlord Bob Greenburg is never happier than when serving his customers with a constantly rotating range of real ales. This is the second Pub of the Month award to the Carlton since Bob bought the tiny working man's pub on a busy main road in Sheffield's East end, just two and half years ago. Almost immediately he started to increase the Real Ales from the two John Smith's beers in June 2004, to the present count of six pumps
The old customer base has been retained and they approved and adapted to his strict no swearing policy, admitting it has created a much friendlier atmosphere. The ongoing alterations are due to be completed later in the year and this will give a larger games room, a new kitchen and dining room, new toilet facilities and a beer garden, along with redecoration, but still maintaining its friendly, welcoming aura.
On the presentation night (St Valentines Day) - February 14th, Bob will be hosting a special evening, jointly sponsored with John Smith's (supplier of Marston's Pedigree and Theakston Old Peculiar), Clark's of Wakefield, Storm Brewing Company of Macclesfield, Archers of Swindon, The Wentworth Brewery at Rotherham and Broadstone Brewery at Retford, during the evening of the presentation the cask ales will be sold at just £1 per pint and these complimented by a buffet supper. There is a car park at the rear of the building and free Lemonade or Cola is provided for drivers of drinking visitors. All are welcome and the evening starts at 8PM.
The Carlton is at 563 Attercliffe Road at the traffic lights with its junction of Staniforth Road. Buses 6,52,69,130 pass the pub, or the tram is close by at Woodbourn Road.
