Inn Brief

The Sportsman at Lodge Moor is one of the few pubs in the area to be selling a new beer from Timothy Taylor. The beer has been specially brewed to celebrate the Tour de France. It is Le Champion, a 4.5% French style blonde beer brewed with Alsace Strisselspalt hops and continental malts to give a smooth body and a delicate hop fragrance. The Sportsman also sells Taylor Landlord and Tetley Bitter.

Shaun Barnes is the new manager of The Plough, Sandygate Road. Bradfield Farmer’s Blonde and Sharpe’s Doombar are regular beers and there will be a rotating guest. A new menu is planned and the Sunday and Thursday quiz nights continue, both with free buffet.

Carbrook Hall (Attercliffe), the Norfolk Arms (Grenoside) and The Friendship (Stocksbridge) remain open, but are all currently advertised as ‘for sale.’

The Miners (Stocksbridge) has closed. It is to be converted into a private dwelling.
