Pub of the Month April 2020

All of us here at The Wisewood Inn would like to thank customers both old and new for continuously supporting us and watching us go from strength to strength in the last five years.

Since re-opening our doors in October 2015, relaunching a pub that had struggled for at least ten years under various pubco ownerships, we have received lots of positive feedback and support from the community and it is an honour to win Sheffield CAMRA Pub of the Month twice in the last two years.

Since winning Pub of the Month in July 2017, we have expanded and made lots of positive changes to create an even better environment. We now even have our very own on-site microbrewery – Loxley Brewery.

With four cask pumps serving Loxley Brewery ales, there are also two guest pumps which are rotated frequently, these pumps have seen us support many fine local breweries and many more from further afield. (Around 400+ to date!!)

The ‘Cellar Bar’ has also been refurbished to an exceptional standard and is the perfect place to grab a pint in the winter months with the real log fire and candlelight. In the summer months, our roller blinds are opened up on to one of the largest beer gardens in Sheffield and the spectacular views of the Loxley Valley surround. The Cellar Bar is also the perfect place to have a function of any kind – we cater for everyone!

We have also undergone a kitchen extension, serving delicious homemade food every day of the week but our Sunday Roasts are a very popular hit, booking is a must almost every Sunday of the year.

Another great achievement that we are very proud of is opening our second pub, The Raven Inn on Palm Street, Walkley, a cosy local also supported by Loxley Brewery and offering a diverse range of cask and keg.

Looking to the future, there are plans to refurbish the upstairs bar in early Spring. We are expanding our beer lines during the refurb too, which is something for the ale lovers to look out for! There are talks of a new food menu too which will pair nicely with the new drinks on offer. As well as this, our second beer festival will be held in June this year, and after a great success last year we are really looking forward to this years event which we are sure will be bigger and better, with great beer, music and people – Keep your eyes peeled for updates in Beer Matters!

A huge mention goes to our staff who work tirelessly to make sure our standards are as high as you expect.

We invite friends old and new to join us on our presentation evening, on Tuesday 7th of April for a few beers, bar snacks and a celebration!
