Opened out by a series of refurbishments but retaining the leaded windows and many distinct drinking areas. Lots of wood panelling and large wooden tables.

    There is a big sign outside saying "No.1 Gastro Pub Sheffield". Well the person who wrote that needs to get out more. They could even go around the corner to the Cricket Inn.

    What dire food. We had the catch sharing plate, which was described as good for four but ample for two.

    One half-slice brown bread, four undercooked frozen prawns, big pile overdone old whitebait - rank, eight mussels, one small soft shell crab, fritters we assumed were polenta, and one 2cm-squared bit of cauliflower.

    Now assume there are four of you. You are obviously going to fight over the piece of cauliflower. Also you will fight after tasting them over who will have to eat the whitebait.

    There were only two of us. We went home hungry but laughing about the half-slice of bread on the sharing plate.

    Do not go here it is awful.

    We have recently eaten here twice now. The first time was with family, and it was excellent food and service, and again last week at the bank holiday. And again excellent food and service.

    We shall eat here again for sure. The food is lovely and home-made, which is what you want for pub grub.

    Went for a birthday meal and we had to send our food back. Microwaved veggies, leather chips, no content to the coconut curry... I could go on. I never complain but our night was ruined.

  • Steven Heaton

    Quality throughout. The new refit has transformed the Cross Scythes at Totley and the new management are doing a fine job creating a great atmosphere in the place.

    The food we had was excellent. I can recommend the pork belly with black pudding mashed potatoes. The service was better than most restaurants and overall better value for money than other gastro-pubs around Sheffield. Just what we needed.
