Have stayed twice at the hotel (once to attend football at Hillsborough and once for the speedway at Owlerton as very handly for both). Each time very impressed. Accommodation is comfortable, fairly basic but great value. Food is good quality, and value. Beers are well kept with a good range of ales both from the brewery and guests. Wood St Brewery bottles available to take home. Clientel very welcoming to non-locals, with a good atmosphere and very friendly vibe to the place, The owners and staff are very nice people too. Very much recommended.

A good choice of cask ales - both their own and a few guests, usually mainly local. Food good basic English traditional and generous portions. The tram passes right outside.

Stayed here in 2009 for Doddy’s 40th bash.
Trad boozer with a conservatory style extension at the rear.
Beers from their own (Crown Brewery at the time) and other guests.
Food (and drink) was excellent vfm and good portions.
Well recommended as a B and B too - cracking fry up in the morning.
We drank here from around 4pm to 7pm and the place was beginning to fill up nicely by the time we left.
2 to 3 miles from city centre.
Great little pub.

Nice place which is a pub, hotel and brewery. They have 3 or so of their own beers on tap and a few decent guest beers. Worth visiting.

Quite an amazing place out in the sticks of Sheffield. Eight craft ales are available from either the in-house brewery or local breweries. A really awesome place with super beers and great service. I stayed over in the hotel and I would recommend that to everyone. It’s worth the trip over here and an overnight stay in the hotel. The rooms are clean and very good value.

Fine reasonably modernised bar at the top of a fine pub crawl. Was a good place to spend a night a few years back, accommodation was excellent. Beer choice was great (as it is in most of Sheffield).

The first stop on my fantastic Sheffield pub crawl. On top (or certainly quite a long way up) of a big hill, reached by tram. When I arrived this had recently changed hands and is now called The Hillsborough. Also it is no longer the home of the Crown Brewery, but of Wood St brewery (another name change). Great pub, with fantastic outdoor balcony, which allows you to sup your beer and stare at the nearby ski slope. It’s like an English apres ski experience! Good beer, great location.

This pub is located in the upper Don Valley and was our final destination on our valley pub crawl. Home of the Crown brewery which occupied five of the hand pumps leaving three more for different guest ales. A likable modern, multiroom pub with wooden tables and chairs. Partly crowded early on a Friday eve. Great in its own way.
The Valley of beer trail in Sheffield was one of my best crawl, ever. During 11 hours Finn and I visited nine pubs, including Bankers Draft and Wig & Pen in the city centre, and consumed more than 35 different beers, all of them real ales hand pulled from cask (on the first Friday of October 2010).
