Pub Launch Party, The Old Crown, London Road. Serving a range of ever changing local and nationally sourced real ales with a newly developed food menu to launch shortly. The pub is the latest addition to Reet Ale Pubs, so you know what to expect really, the same level of charm and tomfoolery as our sister pubs, The Rutland Arms, The Closed Shop, The Three Tuns and Pizza at the Punch. We have a really amazing space that we’re hoping to become a part of Sheffield’s already thriving live music and entertainment scene, and would love to hear from any bands, djs, comedians, poets or promoters if you have ideas for an event. Our pub is your pub, so pop in and grab a pint.
