GRENO-CHIPS

I got a bit distracted by the dessert-enforced closure of the Cow & Calf,

and forgot to mention that Grenoside has another FIVE pubs, all apparently (potentially) open if Humphrey decides the Cow and Calf can’t be.

It also, as you’ll see above, has some glorious woods, which redeemed a trudge around some “solid” but similar village pubs.

Spring is definitely in the air here in Sheffield, the footpaths drying rapidly and the squirrels saving up their pennies for a pint of Acorn Porter.

This is what I moved north for.

Note the folk ALREADY queueing ahead of the Old Red Lion’s re-opening on 12 April.

For a point, which of these five will I be heading for first in April/May.

Today, after a couple of hours, we headed for Today’s Catch near Hillsborough (top). Three fish, large chips, less than a tenner.

  1. Well, the least controversial choice would be the Norfolk Arms, as I’ve already informed Martin that this pub is now run by Stancill Brewery. On the other hand, the Red Lion on the main road, which was so dire when I last visited, now has Black Sheep (or did when a WhatPub surveyor last visited, which is now getting on for five years ago). The Angel is almost certainly a dead loss, my review of the Old Red Lion should put anyone with any taste and sensibility off, so that leaves the Old Harrow, where WhatPub promises Doom Bar. (Again, that was based on a visit in July 2016, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.)

  2. If we had to wait for the footpaths drying to reach spring, we would be in permanent winter. Which is what it feels like. Grenoside is also in the vicinity of Oughtibridge War Memorial Social Club Football Club.

    1. “If we had to wait for the footpaths drying to reach spring, we would be in permanent winter.”

      My darling wife and I go for a walk in the woods behind our house at least 3 or 4 times a week, year-round. Funny thing though, up till this winter, we never thought about putting bloody boots on! It makes all the difference. I blame old age myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Cheers

  3. “all apparently (potentially) open if Humphrey decides the Cow and Calf canโ€™t be.”

    In the map below there’s a Red Lion and an Old Red Lion. Do they build a new pub when the old one gets too run down? Also, what’s up with Wharncliffe Side and Grenoside? Is that like Widdershins and Turnwise?

    Also, in the OS map just below that, I love the T. P. trail… at the ‘bottom’, in the ‘middle’. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “which redeemed a trudge around some โ€œsolidโ€ but similar village pubs.”

    Lovely looking pub. And, in the photo below that one, I had to laugh at how the Greno Garage will give you a Prop(er) Shaft. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “and the squirrels saving up their pennies for a pint of Acorn Porter.”

    (slow golf clap)

    “This is what I moved north for.”

    Bog-free footpaths?

    “Note the folk ALREADY queueing ahead of the Old Red Lionโ€™s re-opening on 12 April.”

    (guffaw)

    “For a point, which of these five will I be heading for first in April/May.”

    Greno garage?
    (cause you know the government is going to give you lot a proper shafting) ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. “I think they built the Old Red Lion second, to confuse Cathy Price the Red Lion ticker.”

        That’s where I’ve heard her name! Thanks.

        Cheers
