Yes, this is what a few us have said. Could be good place in future.

It is excellent news*. I would think they'll stick some flats in though, it's way too big for just a pub - unless the buyers want to move in to a big place, who knows. We'll find out.


*though it's unlikely I'll visit

Historic England is compiling A History of England in 100 places "to encourage debate about which places best tell the country's national story" and it would seem that Farfield Inn is one of ten locations to have been shortlisted under a category entitled Loss and Destruction..

I'm just hoping Carbrook Hall will get the same treatment, although it is looking increasingly unlikely

In a Sheffield Flood(s) context I guess?

Where will the clientele come from to make it viable on a cold wet midweek day. I thought it was all industrialised all around it.

It'll hopefully fill a long dry gap between the Gardeners and the New Barrack Tavern

Hmmm...I'm not sure that business model works anymore. Simple snap and beer used to be a good call but look where all the stones/tetley/wards/smiths pubs have gone. A high % of todays drinkers want a range of beers, ever changing and don't mind price points of £5 and upwards for something really special.

It's in an industrial area, not frequented much by non-workers...I'm struggling to see why I'd pass the Hillsborough Hotel to go to the Farfield unless it offered me something different.

I agree that as a pub crawl stage it would be a great addition to the Kelham/Neepsend/Hillboro route.
