Pub relaunched – The Abbey, Woodseats

Following a £550,000 refurbishment by Punch Taverns, the Abbey in Woodseats reopened its doors to the general public on 12 August. At a pre-launch event the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Denise Fox, cut the ribbon officially reopening this historic former coaching inn on the junction of Chesterfield Road and Abbey Lane.

The general manager, Wayne Morton, an experienced licensee from Sheffield, is presenting four real ales – two regular ales, including Sharp’s Doom Bar, and two guest ales. The pub is also offering a popular pub classic menu, with a twist.

The refurbishment has been sympathetic, with an unchanged room layout, but has also brought the upstairs function room back into use (featuring its own bar), and provided a welcome upgrade to the adjoining bowling green facilities.
