Inn Brief

There has been a recent change of management at the Old Queen’s Head. The new general manager is Lisa who has plans for special events in the future and will be launching a new food menu following a couple of weeks of the kitchen being temporarily closed to prepare. The beginning of the new management also saw all the cask ales already in the cellar- including the local guests from Blue Bee, reduced to just £3 a pint, whilst stocks lasted!

The Three Tuns in Sheffield City Centre has also had a change of management. It’s operating on a short term lease from Heineken Star Pub Company for now and tied to their beer list with Bradfield Farmers Blonde flying the flag for local alongside a couple of other well known cask brands such as Theakstons and Titanic. In recent years the Tuns has struggled to find its way with the offices surrounding it that used to provide trade no longer occupied and there is an attempt to do something different here – whilst it will remain a traditional, relaxed pub during the week it will change character at the weekend with a focus on entertainment and become the “Three Huns” (look out for the neon sign!) with Karaoke on Saturdays and a drag act on Sundays.

Also under new management is the White Lion at Heeley where a programme of live entertainment continues.

Following a short break whilst Landlord and chef Conor was on holiday for his wedding anniversary, food is back again at the Dog & Partridge on Trippet Lane. The kitchen is open 4pm-8pm on Tuesdays then midday to 8pm Wednesday to Friday, midday to 7pm Saturdays. The menu is similar to before with burgers, wings, sandwiches and chips along with changing specials of an Irish theme!
