Stayed at the Harley Hotel when U2 were in town and was pleased with the place, we even got parked right outside the door and it only cost a few quid. We went looking for bars in town after the gig but decided to get back to the hotel, and pleased we did, open 'til 2AM, and a decent pint, and a few sambucas. Breakfast was excellent for how cheap the hotel is, and I've stayed in Hiltons etc... where is isn't that good.
All in all a great hotel for a stay in Sheffield, the tram and a bank right outside. Don't be fussy about the rooms, after all they have a bed toilet and shower and that's all you need. We're going back in a few weeks and definitely staying there.
The White Hart used to be a vibrant village pub with regular discos, pop quizzes & good food, all served in a friendly environment. On my last visit - August 2009 Thursday 10PM there was not a soul about. I didn't even order drinks and left. Another pub for the scrapheap me thinks.
Can I put you in the right direction to a cracking local boozer?
The Pheasant is on Trafalgar Road, just off Penistone Road, and has a great relaxed and friendly environment. It is kept clean and tidy and sells the best carvery in Sheffield, with mashed potatoes, sensational Yorkshire puddings and a gravy you would die for.
On top of this you are served by pleasant staff with a smile on their faces. If it's one of those days and you need picking up then visit the Pheasant and I'm sure that with the quality food, drink and service you get, you will come out with a smile on your face like me.
This pub has got appalling staff, I have been visiting this pub regularly for over 20 years and have recently come to the conclusion it has gone down hill! I never thought I would say this but the Rose & Crown is shocking and I shall not be visiting ever again. Big disappointment.
Lovely pub, steeped in history with intimate winding rooms, surrounded by open countryside. Fabulous views from gardens and forecourt, decent sized car park, food very reasonable with basic vegetarian options (of the leave out the meat and add some cheese variety, but fine), staff very friendly and helpful. Smoked mackerel pate starter is fabulous, filled Yorkshire puddings, beautifully cooked beef.
Kids will love the many peacocks in the garden, rabbits in the field and small play area (swings and climbing frame). Just be warned if you are vegetarian or into animal welfare you may not like the array of stuffed animals and birds. Fascinating for young kids though!
All said, this is our favourite pub, especially if you can go in the week when it is quieter... it is a bikers and hikers favourite! We go whenever we can for a relaxing meal, and when we are jaded by the abundant modern, soulless establishments available elsewhere. Be prepared to sat nav it when you find it, as it took us 6 months to find it again after stumbling across it by accident the first time.
A nice old fashioned family pub at the edge of the village overlooking the green. The landlord and landlady make you feel really welcome and the service is great!
They have a large beer garden with a play area for the kids and a large lawn. The selection of drinks is good and they have real ale on tap. They don't do food though. One of their rooms can be hired for functions with or without buffet style food.
We happened to stumble across this one on a nice sunny day, and if it where anywhere near me I would definitely make it my local!
From the outside the building looks beautiful and it has fantastic views when sitting outside. The inside of the building is also very nice and homely and clean. However, the food really doesn't live up to expectations.
The menu reads very nicely and you conjure up an image of what you think it may resemble when it arrives at the table. When the food came it was so very disappointing. The starter of "roasted field mushrooms with camembert and a garlic breadcrumb crust" was in fact 2 soggy breakfast mushrooms with hardly any cheese on, and only one of them was sprinkled with the breadcrumbs. The cost - £4.40! They did remove them from the bill after complaining.
The mains were very poor, too. Mixed grill was rubbery and the fried egg was not runny and flowing into your steaks, it was hard as if it had been made earlier then re-heated. The Moroccan spiced lamb burger had no inkling of spice, was served between 2 pieces of flatbread about 3" x 5" and a bowl of sweet potato wedges, now the funny bit - £8.80!
I would go in for a drink and to enjoy the scenery, but would certainly not eat in there again.
