Sign up saying for sale, but judging by the gutting of the insides it will never be a pub again

It's been sold and is being refurbished. It will re open as a pub, probably around Christmas time and will have real ale as well as the more traditional Tetleys, Carling etc.

Scaffolding up and work in progress now. It would be nice to see it reopen as a decent pub.

Great. Really pleased it would have been a big shame to lose another pub in walkley.

It’s going to be called The Blind Monkey and will be opening early 2018 after a comprehensive refurbishment. Their website isn’t online yet but they do have a Facebook page.

Veritas is correct, the guys behind The Cadeby Inn pub in the village of Cadeby near Doncaster are behind this pub. The Cadeby Inn has recently won a ‘Best Gastro Pub’ award and specialises in a wide range of real ales, beers, whisky and gin alongside a brilliant food menu.

I went past today and saw they seem to be upgrading the outside wood panels and maybe windows. So they seem to be spending some money on the refurb, it's not just a quick repaint of what is there. Seems an odd choice for them though as it couldn't be much less like the Cadeby Inn as a venue. But good luck to the new venture.

Great news! It'll do really well, plenty of people in Walkley wantig places like this.
While we're discussing Walkley pubs, does anyone have any news on the Rose House? It loks like it's having a facelift with some momey spent on hand painted signage?

I doubt he'll get many of the previous clientele popping in for a John Smiths Creamflow or Magnet but if the Walkley Library bar plan goes ahead then it could make Walkley a bit of a "destination" for beer lovers. Blake, Blind Monkey, Walkley Beer Co. then the Library....a decent enough crawl.
