GOOD NEWS FOR CURRY CONNOISSEURS AHEAD OF THE SHEFFIELD CAMRA AGM

22nd January 2023. A curry special for the Southworths, who appreciate this sort of thing. As does Curry Heute, whose take on Sheffield hasn’t had great things to say about our curry scene over the years, bar the little Apna Style. We have great Asian food here, and proper pub food under a tenner, and… Continue reading GOOD NEWS FOR CURRY CONNOISSEURS AHEAD OF THE SHEFFIELD CAMRA AGM

THE UNION HOTEL HIGHLIGHTS SHEFFIELD’S STRENGTH IN DEPTH

HI HO SILVER LINING

2nd January 2023. Or “New Year’s Day (observed)” as the hipsters call it. Among the many things I’ve taken for granted over two years in Sheffield are the theatre (just missed the Richard Hawley musical at the Crucible), the local football teams, and the New Barrack Tavern. In fact, only one visit to the Barrack,… Continue reading HI HO SILVER LINING

CRAWLING UP THAT HILL – THE BLAKE BECOMES A CHRISTMAS DAY TRADITION

25th December 2022. Sadly, there is no photographic evidence of Mrs RM’s roast lunch that day, but I did take some photos from our epic 9 minute journey from the Blind Monkey to the foot of Blake Street and back up to the Blake Hotel. No. We weren’t dressed in Santa outfits. Or as Oliver… Continue reading CRAWLING UP THAT HILL – THE BLAKE BECOMES A CHRISTMAS DAY TRADITION
