Carbrook Hall

1 comment

  1. In late November, Sheffield City Council granted planning permission, subject to conditions, for Carbrook Hall to be converted from a public house (Use Class A4) to a restaurant/cafe (Use Class A3) including demolition of an existing garage and store/toilets and the erection of a single-storey extension, external alterations including building signs, provision of an outdoor seating area, drive-thru facility, associated access, car parking and landscaping.

    Conditions are imposed in the interests of preserving the special character of the listed building. These include (i) a method statement for removing, storing and replacing panelling in the ground
    floor Oak room and the first floor Panelled room in order to carry out damp treatment works
    and (ii) repainting of decorative plaster work in the Oak Room and the first floor panelled
    room.

    In addition, the applicant (West Street Leisure) is strongly encouraged to allow public access to the upstairs of the building, if technically feasible, by participating in the Sheffield Heritage Open
    Days programme.

    Hence, another of the old pubs of Sheffield is to become a drive-through Starbucks. The historic Jacobean interior should remain.
