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.
Three friends and myself had a very disappointing meal at the carvery in the Crosspool Tavern this past Monday evening.
We arrived at 7PM and were told there was no turkey or gammon left, which only left beef. Even though that wasn't our first choice, we all took the beef since there was no alternative. The beef was so tough that we were all unable to eat it. This is the second time this has happened to us at this restaurant, and we will definitely not be going back again for our twice-yearly get-togethers.
We would rather pay more for our meals, and be able to enjoy them.
Great pub, very friendly staff, great people, made many friends in this pub. Magic atmosphere - used to visit every other weekend. Drove from North East of Scotland for a night out in this pub will visit again soon. Hi to all the local people who use this pub.
We had a university re-union at this pub on Saturday 23rd May 2009. I booked in advance for 16 of us.
Roger, the pub landlord, and all his staff were excellent. The food was fresh, tasty and very reasonable. Service was excellent and quick. Very good variety of beers for the boys! Although they didn't have a large selection of wine, because of the size of the party, Roger provided us with other wines as requested. They couldn't have done enough!
Although unlikely to be in the area again, if I was, I'd certainly call in for a meal. It's a minute off the motorway and has a far better atmosphere than the sometimes grotty services! Well done to all staff for helping us to have an excellent weekend.
