Inn Brief

Heist Brew Co. celebrated their fifth birthday over the weekend of 8/9 April with a bit of a party in the tap room. The bar featured a number of breweries from around the world alongside a number of collaborations across both cask and keg. There was also music and a 5% discount on food. The following weekend saw a couple of international brewery showcases featuring Browar Funky Fluid from Poland and Varvar from Ukraine.

Work continues converting a former shop and office unit at Totley Rise into the Tunnel Tap micropub, it is expected that renovations and plumbing etc should be complete by May after which work fitting it out as a bar will commence with opening expected in the summer.

Following the renovations and major refurbishment at the Anchor Inn, Tideswell, that we covered last month, the pub and restaurant has now reopened.

The former Royal Standard pub has now reopened as the Royal Lounge, a late bar with Lebanese food. No real ale or craft beer available.

Industry Hophouse bottle shop and bar on Leadmill Road is no more with the venue now housing two themed pop ups – Karen’s Diner (burger joint with rude staff) and The Alice Experience (cocktail making). The original Industry Tap is still open.

The Leadmill has hit the news recently as the long standing management’s lease comes to an end next year and the building’s owner are taking it back to run the venue themselves. It is expected to be refurbished and become Electric Sheffield, part of a chain.

The last day of Thornbridge Brewery running the Bath Hotel in Sheffield City Centre as 23 April, the pub will reopen after a short break run by a manager employed by the pub’s long time owner, so it should be in safe hands!
