Club praised after coming second in CAMRA guide

Have your say

Regulars at a Sheffield club are raising a glass after their favourite drinking place was named runner-up in the Club of the Year competition.

Wortley Men’s Club & Institute is described in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2014 as a ‘pretty club with its traditional timber frame exterior and opulent interior’ which is ‘well worth a visit’.

The guide adds: “Formerly the hall library, the club comprises a small bar area, a plush lounge with open fire and a large games room. To the outside there is a small beer garden.

“The club holds regular community events and live entertainment. The guest ale is from a local brewery and a guest draught cider is always available.”

CAMRA’s Mick Moss added: “The Club of the Year competition attracts clubs of all types; from traditional working men’s clubs to sports and social clubs.

“For the Wortley Men’s Club to finish runner-up this year shows that a club in a village can be as successful and appreciated as those in the larger populated towns and cities.”
