Pubs around Dronfield


Recommended Posts

Not really Sheffield, but near enough, we are thinking of going to Dronfield for a change tomorrow. Heard there are some decent pubs there, what would be the best route to take them all in, starting and finishing at Dronfield Railway Station. I don't know my way round Dronfield, so the more info the better. Cheers.

If you like real ale then Dronfield is actually very worthwhile.

 

You've got the Coach & Horses by Sheffield FC on one side of town. It's the tap pub for a certain brewery by the name of Thornbridge so you know what to expect.

 

In the centre of Dronfield, just by the railway bridge there is the Dronfield Arms, which is a free house with 5 hand pumps. Farmers Blonde & Thwaites Nutty Black always on sale here and I think it was the 1st pub in the UK to have Steigl lager on draught.

 

And going out towards Chesterfield you've got the 3 Tuns, which is my own personal favourite. Spire Brewery pub with 12 handpumps & Bernard Pilsner.

 

Also, the 3 Valleys beer festival is next week! That will be a great way of seeing all the goodies that local pubs (as well as Barlow Brewery) have to offer.

How far from the Railway Station are the Dronfield Arms and the 3 Tuns? Can't make the 3 Valleys, but went to the Roundhouse last Friday-good day out. Thanks for your reply.

 

The Dronfield Arms is only about 2 minuites walk. The 3 Tuns is about 5 minuites walk along the main road from there past the White Swan.

 

Coach & Horses is in the opposite direction from Dronfield train station and about 7 minuites wak from the station.

Just an idea, but if you go on the bus rather than the train the Stagecoach 43 is a good bus and a Stagecoach Sheffield Dayrider ticket (£3.40 bus only or £3.90 bus and tram) includes Dronfield.

 

The 43 bus will drop you off outside the Coach & Horses, Jolly Farmer and Three Tuns. From the Three Tuns its a 5 minute walk to the Dronfield Arms (or catch 44/44A bus).

 

To return to Sheffield the 44/44A bus picks up almost outside the pub or you can walk up to the fire station to get the 43.
