Terry said: “I love to sit in my comfy chair relaxing looking out at the views over Sheffield. Sometimes I am so relaxed I could nod off. It’s the perfect place to sit and have a pint.”

Nicola Ibbotson, Manager, Wood Hill Lodge, said: “We have all missed our pubs in the last year. We wanted to give the people we support their very

own space to have a drink, meet friends and enjoy each other’s company. It has been lovely to see people we support having a laugh with a pint and a packet of pork scratchings whilst enjoying our incredible views of Sheffield City.”
