There are great transport links with the A60 within 500 yards leading to access to the M1 connecting to Sheffield and Leicestershire.

Pub Layout

The pub has a large open plan trading area with a long single bar servery to the right of the entrance. It is currently decorated with a music theme, with wooden flooring throughout and a mixture of fixed and loose seating with a tiled service area. There is a small enclosed snug area tucked away behind the entrance for more cosy drinking, and to the left of the pub there is a sports area housing a pool table and darts oche. A small, well-equipped kitchen is located at the rear of the pub, along with access to the toilets. Through the sports area there is access to the external drinking patio with outdoor seating.

The planned refurbishment will give a new, fresh look to this traditional community pub, and will provide improved facilities for both existing and potential new customers. Regularly rotating cask ales, pub sports teams and live sports coverage will continue to be a focus, along with a regular, varied entertainment programme. An opportunity exists for the development of a small back-bar food offer to supplement the drinks trade.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation on the first floor consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

There is additional accommodation with external access on the 2nd floor, with four more good sized bedrooms, lounge, shared bathroom and kitchen.
