“You seem to have neglected the Sam Smith’s pub, the Travellers Rest” says Will, responding to this morning’s post.
Some people would have gone back in November and checked, but not me. Within TEN MINUTES of reading Will’s admonishment I was hitting the A61, and the delightfully bumpy tram line up to Oughtibridge.
In truth, I knew the Travellers Rest was there, but when I walked past the back of it I saw a big sign pronouncing “Daisy Chain Day Care” and assumed Sir Humphrey had sold it on his way to the Cow & Calf for his favourite pudding.
But here it is;
Oooh, Strouts Brewery windows,
and a ghostly shadow at the door.
Well, this can go on the To Do list, but if you can’t wait for my visit there’ll be some good photos on Page 66 of the Sheffield CAMRA Heritage Pub guide.
No real ale, but who goes to a Sam Smiths pub for cask OBB these days ?We go to complain about their 2020 price increases and drink the keg stout, and admire the tiling.
I admired the A-Z of positive feelings in the window nearby.
And hit the hills.
