Dronfield Pub of the Season

The Coach & Horses on Sheffield Road, Dronfield, is a cosy little pub attached to Sheffield FC’s football ground. Sheffield FC hold the record of being the oldest established football league club in the world. The actual pub is operated by Thornbridge Brewery with the bar showcasing a selection of well kept examples of their beers, along with guest beers of a similar calibre.

The team behind the bar, led by pub manager James Broad and Cellar Manager Ash create a friendly atmosphere throughout the pub, infectious enough for the musicians attending the regular Monday open mic jam night to form a band called ‘The Coachmen’ that went on to play festivals around the UK!

Other regular events at the Coach include a quiz night on Sundays, with free chip butties for participants.

The final piece in the jigsaw of success is the food, with ‘Chariot’s Kitchen’ serving quality home cooked food. Their new menu launches on 4th August,

The presentation ceremony for the Summer “Pub of the Season Award”, voted for by Dronfield CAMRA members, will be held at  8:00 PM (for 8:30) at the Coach and Horses on Saturday 29th August.

During the evening, Drone Valley Brewery will launch their third brew. As yet nameless, this will probably be a 4.8% pale ale based on either Amarillo or Galaxy hops.

A free buffet will be provided courtesy of Chariots Kitchen.
