    Going down hill fast, lost all its welcome, staff not interested. Chairs put on tables at 11:30pm, main door locked. Had to exit via a fire door. Outside lights turned off, so had to negotiate the courtyard to the car park in pitch dark.

    Lots of regulars already found new "local". We'll be joining them!

  • Amanda Vickerage

    Lovely old pub. Very, very nice food. Lovely open fires. Bar staff very friendly!

  • Fran Smith

    What a load of drunken yobs. I will stick to the Wordsworth Tavern.

  • Julie

    Phoned up this place to see if they served food. Was answered by a rough sounding voice who told me they did and that we didn't need to book.

    We turned up for my mum's birthday, she was 77. We were greeted (or not) by a few people at the bar and were just stared at! It was like walking in the Slaughtered Lamb pub in the film American Werewolf in London. It was dingy and scruffy and far from a warm welcome. Needless to say we walked out and will not be returning.

    In the top Red Lion further into Grenoside it was different again. Lovely staff, fabulous meal

    If you're up Grenoside give the Cow & Calf a wide berth.

News for Cow & Calf Inn:

  • The popular Cow And Calf pub in Grenoside has officially reopened, much to the delight of local residents. This reopening marks the end of a challenging period for the pub, which had been closed for several years.

    Located on Skew Hill Lane in Grenoside, the Cow And Calf faced significant difficulties in recent years. The pub initially closed its doors in 2020, only weeks after reopening following the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions. The closure was part of a wider trend affecting many pubs nationwide, which struggled with staffing shortages exacerbated by the pandemic.

    Samuel Smiths pubs, the owners of the Cow And Calf, announced last year their intention to reopen a number of their venues, including the Cow And Calf. The company faced challenges in finding landlords to manage these pubs, but remained committed to bringing them back into operation. An official from Samuel Smiths expressed satisfaction in seeing the Cow And Calf reopen, highlighting the efforts made to overcome the hurdles posed by the pandemic.

    Before its closure in August 2020, the pub was a popular destination for both locals and visitors. Its picturesque location in the heart of Grenoside, surrounded by stunning countryside, made it a favourite spot for diners and pub-goers.
