Part of the JD Wetherspoon chain, the manager here has been running this pub for a few years now and makes great effort to promote well kept real ales, including some from local breweries, offered at affordable prices!

This is followed by the regular monthly branch meeting where we share pub, club and brewery news and more – all over a pint or two of course. The venue is the Greystones pub back room, bus 83 stops right outside the pub or various other buses (81/82, 88, 218, 272) stop a short walk away on Ecclesall Road South.

Please note the deadline for submitting motions to debate is the March branch meeting and the deadline for voting for Pub of the Year is 10th February (after which the area winners as voted for will be judged to find the overall winner).
