The newest addition to Dronfield’s bar scene opens on 18th September.

Underdog is a free house on Dronfield Bottom, next door to the Dronfield Arms, Beer Stop and White Swan and just a few minutes walk from the station. It is the premises previously occupied by Smiffy’s, which has undergone a refurbishment by local tradesmen giving it a modern look with exposed brick and steelwork.

Continuing with the local theme, all the staff are from the Dronfield area and local suppliers are being used where possible.

On the beer front, Underdog will feature a range of 5 cask and 21 keg taps with Triplepoint Brewery in Sheffield supplying the house beer.

The bar also boasts an extensive gin list, with the house pours provided by Derbyshire Distillery, plus of course other fine wines and spirits!

Meat and Cheese sharing boards will be available Thursday to Sunday to provide nice nibbles to accompany your drinks.

Special events are planned including beer, wine, port, gin, rum and whisky tastings with small plates paired with the drink, there are also likely to be tap takeovers and trips to visit the breweries involved!

Like with many craft beer venues, a nice line in merchandise is also planned for their fans…!
