Re-opening for the Middlewood tavern?

A developer wants to relaunch the semi-derelict Middlewood Tavern at Oughtibridge as a family pub. Following the floods of 2007, the road towards Oughtibridge collapsed, cutting the pub off from passing trade. It closed shortly afterwards. Proposals from Nico Cebani are being considered by the council. The plans state: “The restored pub will be aimed firmly at families, with a good-sized restaurant where previously there was only a drinking area, and also a dedicated beer garden and play area where parents can supervise children. There is a footbridge that crosses the river immediately over the road from the site, linking the pub to the riverside walk. It would be a wonderful gift to the area, we believe, for users of the riverside walk to be able to refresh themselves at a midway point between Sheffield and Oughtibridge.”

New Micropub for Broomhill?

A change of use application has been submitted to the city council to turn the former Knowle’s Emporium shop, on Glossop Road in Broomhill, into what would be Sheffield’s third micropub. Applicant, Edward Finley said the Glossop Road unit was ‘well-positioned’ for people seeking an alternative to the larger pubs in Broomhill. Opening hours would be noon to 11.30pm daily and there will be a focus on real ale.
