Historic Sheffield pub crawl bar is boarded up as new buyers sought
A historic Sheffield pub popular as part of an annual pub crawl has been boarded up while the search for new owners goes on.
Metal shutters have been erected across doors and windows at The Royal Oak in Mosborough – and it is not clear what the future holds for the pub – one of the Mosborough 10 - while new tenants are sought.
The traditional village pub, which is situated on High Street, is just a short walk from Crystal Peaks shopping centre and forms part of the annual Mosborough 10 pub crawl, when a fancy dress parade takes place between all the local pubs.
EI Publican Partnerships is looking for somene to take over what it describes as ‘an attractive pub situated in the historic and affluent village of Mosborough.’
An advertisement adds: “Thanks to its prime location it has great exposure to passing trade and people visiting the area.
“The pub has two separate trading rooms, large beer gardens to the front and rear with children’s play equipment and a catering kitchen to introduce a value food offering.
“Currently there is a well-established weekend entertainment schedule in place including disco and karaoke each week, which is very popular.
“Mosborough is infamous for its fancy dress charity pub crawl known as the Mosborough 10 which is held annually. This is a fantastic event for the area and it attracts participants from as far away as Blackpool.”
It added that The Royal Oak has a large open plan lounge for 40 covers and a traditional tap room for a further 10 covers.
The lounge is used mainly for entertainment at weekends and various large screen sports viewing. The tap room has a pool table, darts board and TVs to watch all the latest football matches and sporting events.
A spokesman said: “The Royal Oak enjoys custom from both locals and the wider community, with weekend trade typically attracting younger clientele and a more mature customer throughout the week. The opportunity exists for a day time food offer to potentially build upon the customer base.”
