We briefly mentioned the change of management of the Old Queen’s Head next to Sheffield Interchange bus station back in the August issue of Beer Matters and the fact that the new manager, Josh, is actually an old face to the regulars as he already worked behind the bar there!
Briefly after the changeover the beer range was reduced to just the Thwaites range and the food service was also operating a limited menu, however the good news is the two guest ale pumps are now back in action and working their way through an ever changing choice of mainly local beers. On the day the photograph was taken the choice was brewSocial Simply the Zest (an IPA with a citrus kick, 5.5% ABV) and Little Critters Great Danish (a maple and pecan pastry stout at 7.4% ABV).
On the food side a full menu is back in operation, the main menu is very much all about pub grub classics and a cheaper lunchtime menu is also available offering a choice of hot dishes, sandwiches and burgers for £5-6.
The pub itself has seen no change and is spread across three rooms on the ground floor – the historical dining room, the small lounge and the main lounge; there are TV screens in the main lounge showing news or sporting events and there is also an upstairs function room.
