Shepley Spitfire Public House

The Shepley Spitfire is located on Mickley Lane in Totley, and is very much at the heart of the local community. The pub was newly built in 1979 and named after Douglas Shepley, who was killed in 1940 when his Spitfire was shot down over the Isle of Wight.

The Hardy and Hanson company bought the land that the pub is built on, half a mile from the Shepley family home at Woodthorpe Hall. The company asked the community to come up with a name for the pub and the Shepley Spitfire was born. It offers something for everyone including great food, a variety of cask ale, sports coverage and a lovely patio area.

    Been going to this pub for years, as it is on our doorstep. Went there a few weeks ago had and our tea.

    Hubby had a burger, which was inedible. It was well overcooked and hard as a rock.

    My friend had a chili in a basket. You got the basket topped with cheese and a very small amount of chili around the edge so that it looked full of chili.

    My other friend had a chili chicken wrap. There were three small pieces of chicken in the wrap.

    Since the new owners have taken over the food portions have shrunk and the food quality is non-existent. It is a real shame. We always classed this pub as cheap and cheerful and it was good for tea after work, but not any longer.

    We now eat at the Cross Scythes, where food quality is excellent.

    Arrived 22 April 3:55PM on a Sunday, looking forward to a nice carvery.

    The meat was dry, potatoes hard, stuffing inedible. 3 of us had this. My wife ordered rump steak well done, it was like rubber, sent it back. Not much better and her chips had been re-cooked.

    Went to pay my bill and they tried to over charge us.

    Never again.

    Had a relaxed girlie pre-Xmas meal there the other night. Lovely warm welcome by the bar staff, food was delicious, well cooked and piping hot. Good varied menu, value for money and vegetarian options available.

  • Jill Wilkinson

    Having been run down a bit over recent months, it was nice to see the place had been taken over by a new owner.

    Food is back on, which has been missing over the last few months and it's really nice. There is a carvery on Sundays, which was very busy when we visited and the normal menu is on every day, with a lunchtime special menu, which is really good value. A good family pub for food but still a nice place to relax and have a few glasses of wine and chat with friends.

    Overall a good experience and it's on my doorstep which makes it even better!

News for Shepley Spitfire:

  • Totley's Shepley Spitfire reopened on 9th May, marking a milestone in its transformation. Located on Mickley Lane, the pub now operates under the banner of Hive Pubs, a new Greene King franchise offering aspiring pub owners a reduced risk opportunity. Steering this new chapter is Gary Marshall, who brings with him a wealth of experience from his two-decade-long tenure in the pub industry, starting from his roots in Chapeltown's Coach & Horses.

    The pub's much-anticipated reopening brings an extraordinary makeover, with a staggering investment of £360,000. Gary elaborated on the extensive overhaul, noting, "While the internal layout remains unchanged, virtually every surface has undergone a revitalisation, except for the floor."

    The exterior received considerable attention, with enhancements including a covered and heated seating area, perfect for patrons seeking outdoor relaxation. A large outdoor TV and a revitalised sunken garden, once neglected, now stand as prime attractions.

    Reflecting on the renovation process, Gary commended the tireless efforts of the contractors. "The transformation was remarkable, accomplished within a remarkably short timeframe," he remarked. "The sheer dedication of the 20 to 30 workers on-site was evident, even though the car park resembled a bustling construction zone."

    Gone are the days of a tired appearance, as the Shepley Spitfire now radiates freshness and vibrancy.

    To commemorate its grand reopening, the pub arranged a special evening of live music featuring the tribute band Indigo, playing nostalgic tunes from Oasis, The Killers, Blur, and other iconic hits from the 90s and 00s.
