We have been eating at the Moorlands for a number of years. The food is consistently of a high standard and the staff are very friendly, making it a good place to visit.

The pub was chocka full and we were both pushed down where the DJ was. We were pushed passed the rope and into the DJ's enclosure, where the DJ (who turned out to be the owner) rudely told us to get out of his space.
We started to move back into the crowds, whereupon a woman with a face like a dog chewing a wasp threatened to hit my sister! My sister enquired who she was and she said "I'm the owner's wife, get out!".
Well we had our drinks and are not used to being spoken to in such a way and promptly told them this. So, the owner summoned a big bouncer to throw us out. We still wouldn't leave - so the owner gave us £5 to leave!
I would like to add that I am a primary school teacher and my sister works with autistic children, we are respectable members of society. How dare they treat us in such a fashion?!

Not a lot to say, but it's gone very down hill. Went for a meal on Wednesday and you can tell the old chef's have gone. Not good, don't know who has it now or who's running it but I would give it up.

After passing the turn-off for this pub for 5 years ago on the way back from visiting Sheffield University, we decided to stop for my daughter's graduation meal, on the off-chance.
We could not have been more pleased. The location was beautiful, the staff friendly and the food delicious. The menu was good with plenty of daily specials to choose from, too. Plus a good selection of wines, although we splashed out on a bottle of champers!
There was about a 20-minute wait for our food to be served, which showed that it was all freshly prepared. Servings were generous, the food looked appetising and tasted even better.
The pub itself had a very interesting history and stuffed (literally!) to the rafters with interesting local artefacts.
A repeat visit is a must - I am only sorry that it took so long to try it.

A good selection of beers, wines and spirits. Pool table, darts board, sports TV, food, family room. This pub has got the lot plus one thing I bet no other pub in the world has... an outdoor slingshot range! It sounds strange but it works much more fun than darts, as everyone can shoot at the same time.
A great pub, friendly locals, a great landlord and atmosphere and a few surprises.

Went in one Friday lunch for a drink & lunch with adult family. On approaching the bar the landlord walked off and his assistant had a face like thunder with no "hello/yes please" and a grunt for a thanks. We were then told, with menus in hand, "we don't do food on Friday lunch".
Really poor service we won't be going there again. It used to be a great pub. My advice is stay away, it's what they deserve.

We had my birthday party last week at the Old Harrow. I would like to thank all the staff for their friendly service and hospitality.
The buffet that they presented was exceptional and at only £3 per person was really good value.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.

This is a great pub. We just moved here and this has got to be the cleanest pub we have ever been into. The brass shines, the outside clock works, the food is good, you can sit outside in nice surroundings. The white wine is chilled unlike most Sheffield pubs where it is served warm and what women drink doesn't matter as long as the beer is cold.
This pub will never close down and all Sheffield pubs could learn a lesson from this one. The staff are friendly and efficient and the landlady is a star.
There is internet access, too. A nice smoking area. Quiz nights and music nights. Good for families. An area for dogs. All needs met.
5 stars from me

For saying it's a sports cafe it's full of the older generation of people. The only sport bit about it is the horse racing on about 10 different televisions.
Cheap drinks during the day but poor quality. Rawson Spring is a better option!

Good beer, especially the cask EPA. They often have a raffle on the weekend (only need to buy a drink to get a ticket).
The food is however a little disappointing. Mixed grill for around £7, which comes with a drink such as a pint, coffee etc... Chicken didn't resemble chicken, some sort of re-formed chicken. Sausages also similar, processed. Chips good, steak not too bad, pork processed too?! Not great considering the price. Puddings nuked in microwave!
Shame, as the beer is good, but food is not. Would pay around £3 for similar in a low end greasy spoon.
