You really wouldn't have wanted to put up with my step dad and the world's most annoying sat nav.

I'm glad someone else knows of the majesty of this pub. The music in there was ACE. As was the food. As was everything.

The place for happy endings would be just across the road from The Gardener's. Or so I've been told.
Arf! Took me a while, but I think I just got that....
We're on Gardeners' boycott from now on though aren't we?

The pub just over the road from me has been taken over recently and they've transformed it into something quite ace. Previously it had 4 or 5 previous owners in the 3 years I've lived here, and was always dank, empty and pretty crap really. The new owners, a gay couple, haven't exactly gone for 'pub of the year' award or anything, they've just cleaned and brightened it up somewhat, kept that prices at a reasonable level, made sure they were decently stocked (not a huge range, but a good pint nonetheless) and are very friendly to anyone who comes in.

I wish I weren't skint just about all the time so I could go in more though.
Fuck your tea room.

Ironic is for haircuts, not forum posts.

I was reading the Sheffield Telegraph and saw this article, which struck me, as I'd never even heard of the place. I went to see it and was amazed at what a nice old building it was and had not been wrecked by the pub-interior-wrecking industry.

It seemed to be a really nice pub, dimly lit, wooden bits, Burton Bridge ales (amongst others). Now it's closing, but I can't help but feel they could have publicised its existence a bit more while it was a going concern.

I don't think the website helps - it looks very slick for what is a pubby pub, but I suppose the rooms and the food are how they kept it going while they did. So, any Sheffields (maybe you all knew about it and it was an S6 secret) should consider a trip there before it shuts forever after 200 years in, er, about six weeks.

Sad.

:-(

Definitely want to take in a trip to the Robin Hood if I can somehow factor that in from up here - will be in touch. One needing a write-up for the blog whilst you still can, Humblebee?

I think I went in there once about 20 years ago. I used to know someone who lived in Stannington. I can't really remember it though. I think a trip before it closes would be good.

Don't say that in front of my Dad! Such talk really annoys him.

Slighty off topic, but what the heck: There's a Robin Hood pub in Stourbridge that I have wanted to go to for as long as I can remember (from birth to 4 I lived about 500m away). It looks quite nice and got a 7.0(!) on BeerInThe Evening.com

Sound Garden Pub in Elverum, Norway is the best pub in town. There are only three pubs in town though, so that doesn't count for much. But they do have the best selection of beer, the best occasional live music and it's the place to go if you want a chance to spot members of indie pop sensations Team Me or the bassist in The Wombats.
