Plan for new micropub gets the go-ahead in Sheffield

Have your say

Plans to open another micropub in Sheffield have been approved.

A change of use application was submitted to the city council to turn the former Knowle’s Emporium shop, on Glossop Road in Broomhill, into a small pub focusing on real ale.

Applicant Edward Finley is behind the new venture. In his application, he said the Glossop Road unit, which has been empty for several months, was ‘well-positioned’ for people seeking an alternative to the larger pubs in Broomhill.

Opening hours would be noon to 11.30pm daily.

Other micropubs in Sheffield include The Portland House on Ecclesall Road, and The Beer House close to Hunters Bar.

There is also the Walkley Beer Company - ‘an off-licence with seating’ - on South Road, Walkley.
