Seems like work is progressing at a rapid rate at the new Elmwood Farm pub on the A57 at Beighton, well its not actually in Beighton, its in Rotherham, just after the Welcome To Rotherham sign. They are now ready to put the roof on, and look on the projected target of an August opening to me.
Seem to be a lot of employment opportunities on offer, see link below ...

Hope it doesn't go the same way as the Wetherby, two minutes away and now abandoned with the steel shutters up.
'Family Friendly' its says ... oh dear ... not another Lock Keeper, but I suppose you can't pre judge it before you've have paid a visit?

Hope it works out for them, just got to keep the scoats out from day one, there seems to have been a big clear out of them at the Gypsy Queen, just hope they don't make their way up to the Elmwood Farm ... there are plenty of low lifes around there shown as a testimonial to the Wetherby.

Elmwood farm wonder why they will call it that ? It's very close to the old Beighton and Brookhouse pits.

Maybe they should have just called it 'The Pits'

They should indeed as it will be another branded chain pub selling overpriced beer and bland food, avoid.

Just talking to an old miner in Beighton , he tells me there was a farm very near to the pub , it's where they kept all the pit ponies, however he can't remember the name of the farm but this might be why they are calling it that ?

I dont think it is a Vintage Inn pub, I think its the same pubco as own the Monksbridge Farm at Dinnington, all there branded pubs have Farm at the end of the name, location is irellevant. Monksbridge Farm serves poor quality food aimed at chav families.

It is now the HQ of a company called Airmaster.

Am i the only one who wonders why they are building a pub that sells alcohol on a site that is best visited by car,as it's on the edge of industrial units and the a57 with no houses in the immediate vicinity.It seems like the perfect place for the police to lay a trap and breathalise people as they leave the pub.I know it's mainly a glorified cafe/restaurant but it must still need to achieve a level of alcohol sales to satisfy the owners,so am i naive in thinking every driver who visits will not drink?
Wouldn't it have been better to develop the Wetherby site,what do others think?

Don't forgot the quaint little choo choo trains passing by and the lovely little country lane otherwise known as the A57 on your doorstep and if the winds in the right direction you may be lucky enough to breath in the perfumed aroma waffting down the valley from woodhouse mills treatment plant,WHAT more do you want!

I think you may be right, even the Elmwood logo is the same as the Monks Bridge one. It is Greene King behind it, the Hungry Horse people, aiming as you say, at the bottom end of the market. 'Children Distraction' areas, oh dear!!!

---------- Post added 20-05-2013 at 12:35 ----------

The Elmwood Farm's policy on children ... is this a pub or a creche? 'Ingegrated Disctraction Areas' ... OMG!!!

Childrens' Activities
In keeping with our value promise, there's no entry fee for your kids in our integrated distraction areas.
It is an exciting place for children to explore, featuring a wide range of play equipment: from traditional toys to cutting-edge games consoles and touch-screen learning technology.
There is also a selection of popular childrens' books.
The childrens' distraction area is a part of the restaurant where you may notice frequent changes. We appreciate that kids want new experiences and activities and we hope to be able to provide them with that stimulation.
Rest assured that our games and activities are carefully selected with suitability and safety a priority.

Great, its not even got any windows in yet and everyone seems to have closed it already. We've been to one of these farmhouse inns near Doncaster and the one at Dinnington and the food and staff were excellent. Their desserts are to die for. Brilliant for familys. As regards drinking and driving as someone has mentioned - its a FAMILY pub shouldn't be drinking if the kids are with you....

Nobody is forcing anyone to visit this pub! So they won't have to worry about the pylons or trains!
I live quite close by and are looking forward to having a pub nearby again!

I thought that alcohol and pubs sort of went together.
