Hello

Does anyone have any experience of this pub?
I have been ringing around venues this afternoon for a party.. everywhere I have been recommended was already booked.. one of the places suggested I try here...
Anyway, they are able to let the room to me...
But Im not sure what kind of place it is, does anyone know. I am hoping to pop and have a look at it but its difficult as Im living away at the moment..

Cheers

There is more atmosphere in a morgue than that place, If you have a party there, I think you friends wouldnt like you anymore. Add to the fact the neighbours always complain.

Sorry which Cross Sythes are we talking about? I thought you meant the one at Totley but I thought that was Baslow Road?

Yes the original poster was asking about the one close to woodseats.

I haven't been in for a drink for about a decade, but 5 years ago I went in and they had a large games room for children at the back.
It is quite a large pub.

The clue is in the title stix. You should actually read the thread titles. Clearly uneducated....

By the way, it is one of the worst pubs in the universe.

worst pub I've ever been in....made the mistake of going in a couple of times cos its my sister's local but NEVER again! rude staff, unfriendly inbred locals and **** beer...what more do you want?!?

actually, to give them their dues, the fact that 'Slimming World' have got a giant banner outside advertising their wednesday nights there does make me laugh...British culture all over me thinks!.....'oooh you've done well this week Mavis, half a pound lighter and just two bags of nuts and a shandy tonight well done!!'

We used to go quite a lot but then the food started to get a bit bland and microwaved tasting so we stopped going. Some fo the regulars/locals are complete tits too.

If you drive past you will what kind of people are outside smoking on the tables, doesn't look like a very nice place.

I called for a drink the other day. Thornbridge Brother Rabbit 4% at 1.70 for a half and Britvic 55 at 2.00 bottle. I thought they were taking the Mickey. God knows what they charge for Jaipur or St Petersburg. I probably won't be going in again to find out.

It`s a nice pub now.

Think it`s .20 for Jaipur but they usually have better beers than that. St P will be near to 4 on cask, I`d guess but then it`s 7%+ so I tend to think of it as two pints worth of booze (and well worth it). Kacho, Kipling, Pollards are all really tidy pints imo and all around 3. Personally, I wouldn`t drink Brother rabbit or Guinness there tbh.

The pub has some new managers now with their predecessors having moved to set up the Harrogate Tap.

Brother Rabbit is 2.80 a pint so 1.40 a half, Jaipur is 3.30 and St Petersburg is £4 but that IS 7.4%!
