Out on a limb pubs

There are a number of good pubs that don’t really fit into any of our local area guides as they aren’t somewhere that makes a pub crawl but are still worth the trip! Here’s a round up of some of them.

Craftworks, Mosborough

Small bar with a different mood depending when you go – it opens from 9am with decent coffee and nice cakes – as well as the range of craft beers on both cask and keg. After lunch the cakes are moved out of sight and it then has more of a micropub feel. Some evenings see entertainment such as quiz nights and live music.
