Pub of the Month April 2024

Craftworks describes itself as a micropub, although some may say it is bigger than the typical micro being two shop units knocked together, however at heart that is what it is!

The venue sits on the main road through Mosborough and appeals to many sections of the community, opening from 9am serving decent coffee supplied by Sheffield-based Forge Coffee Roasters with bar staff benefitting from barista training and using a proper espresso machine. They also usually have a selection of cakes and bakes available on the bar in the morning too.

Into the afternoon and evening the focus is more on the beer, wines and spirits (although both coffee and booze is available all day!) with four handpumps on the bar for cask ales, including a house pale ale supplied by Abbeydale Brewery. These are supplemented by a tap wall featuring additional craft beers on keg.

On Mondays, Craftworks offer a cask club promotion from 6pm with 15% off the real ales on handpump.

The bar generally offers a friendly, relaxed atmosphere to enjoy nice drinks, however there are some evening events that take place too including quiz nights (Tuesdays 8pm), live music (Sundays 4pm) and comedy (last Wednesday of the month at 8pm).

They also take part in the annual Eckington Beer & Music Festival which sees a number of pubs and cafes on the road from Mosborough through Eckington and Marsh Lane to Hundall put entertainment on, which this year is held on Saturday 29 June.

We’ll be heading over to Craftworks to present their Pub of the Month award certificate on the evening of Tuesday 9 April. This is their quiz night so you may choose to take part in that, enjoy a beer or two and then see our presentation after.

Stagecoach buses 50/50a (Sheffield Interchange to Chesterfield via Eckington) will get you there and drop you off quite close to their door, alternatively a short walk away are TM Travel buses 30a/55 and Hulleys bus 80/80a.
