Absolutely dreadful place. The landlord himself is pleasant. However, he has family members working there, together with family who drink there, who are absolutely horrible and insulting towards guests. The father who drinks there is bordering alcohol dependant and when intoxicated is aggressive and rude to guests, to which the landlord accepts. Avoid at all cost.
Don't know what's happening there. Had many good meals there until recently.
Met with friends last week for a meal. Told meals were available until 7pm. At 6:30pm we went to order, only to be told that the chef had gone home! Ended up having fish and chips from local chippie sat outside in the rain!
Then today, met a friend who I only see once a year at the Sportsman and it was closed at 12pm even though the website said open at 12. We sat outside in the smoking area covered in broken glass and ringing their phone to see if anyone answered. No answer and no lights on. People were trying the door and walking away. So we ended up walking down to the Cross Scythes, Derbyshire Lane, and had a beautiful meal!
Bye bye Sportsman, you've lost 6 regular customers!
Funeral party held on July 19th at The Old Red Lion, Grenoside. Thank you for making everything run smoothly. The selection of food was very good and the hot chips were lovely. A big thank you to all the staff - very friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend.
From the moment I walked in I was felt like an outsider, as I have not been here before. I was stared at and looked at like a piece of dirt. You say "warm welcome" on the side; maybe you should change it to "cold shoulder".
Just been to this pub. Waited to be served, people just walking in the pub I was totally ignored. I was before them. It kept going on like this so walked out and went elsewhere. Will not be going back and I will tell other people not to bother.
Great place to eat, watch footy or a catch-up with friends or family. We were served by Dee, who was very helpful and friendly and made us feel really welcome. The meal was really lovely and great value for money, definitely worth a return visit.
With the weather being wonderful today we decided to meet some friends to celebrate a birthday at The New Inn.
While there, the kids were playing lovely on the swings. Another child walked in front of the swing and was accidentally knocked (she wasn't hurt in any way), which resulted in me and a friend being approached by a very intimidating intoxicated member of staff who admitted this said child wasn't hers and had been hit by my child! She was informed by my child and other witnesses that it was an accident, yet she proceeded to tell anyone that bothered to listen that there had been a "scuffle" between the children. Yet she hadn't seen anything, as she told me that!
The way this lady approached us was absolutely disgusting and the way she carried it on was disgraceful. If you have members of staff who behave like that and cannot even stand still (because of the bottles of wine they was drinking plus whatever she was topping it up with - yes I could see) when working and condone this behaviour is ridiculous.
Put it this way you have lost very good customers!
First of all, a massive thank you to all the staff here. The rooms were fantastic, comfortable, clean and relaxing. The food... home made and hearty. The ambience... so good. Very welcoming and comfortable. The staff and owner could not do enough for us.
We will 100% be back to stay here. We felt we were at home. No words can fully compliment and explain this inn except fantastic. One of the best we have stayed in. Respect to all the staff. Amazing.
Visited the pub on Easter Sunday with husband and two adult sons. Food absolutely dreadful... the worst I've ever had in a restaurant.
OK... I know Easter Sunday was probably a bit stressful for the staff, but they still took our money. This was a special occasion for a family get-together and the evening was spoiled by this awful culinary experience. I complained in detail to the management and received an apology!
