Pub of the Month December 2019

A few years ago the Ball Inn, Crookes was refurbished and this included installing a new kitchen in the old stables at the back of the cobbled court yard. Part of the pub is a sports bar with TV screens with a large dining area at the rear but some of the original wooden panelling can still be seen and photos of bygone Crookes are on most walls.  There is stylish decking and surround at the front of the pub and at the back is a beer garden with heated smoking area.

It is a Greene King pub with  14 hand pumps and  offers the normal range of Greene King beers and the guest beers are usually from Sheffield breweries and offers  CAMRA members a discount.

Open from 10am for breakfasts, tea, coffee and cakes and serves meals throughout the day until 10pm weekdays and 9pm weekends.  There are a range of children’s and senior menus  and Sunday lunches are popular with specials available all week.

Live music features on the last Friday of the month.

Pub of the Month award will be presented to the manager, Simon Howard and his team on 10th December. The pub is on the 52/52A bus route so come along and join us.
