“Tradition and community”
Review of Gardeners Rest

Gardeners Rest
Ranked #13 of 128 Nightlife in Sheffield
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 May 2018

A traditional pub with a good range of well-priced beers and a real community ethos.

Really liked the beer garden at the back where we could sit and watch the river go past.

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that perhaps it has been 'too' successful in being a community pub- as we walked in a lot of heads turned so felt like a bit of an outsider. Hopefully that will change if we go back!

A great traditional real ale pub in Neepsend Sheffield. Note to hipsters - this pub is in Neepsend and not Kelham Island.

My partner and I headed to the Gardeners Rest for quiet drinks after our anniversary lunch only to be served by the grumpiest barman I've had the misfprtune of encountering. We were going to stay for the afternoon and sit in the beer garden however after being berated for not asking for ice with a cider when he was getting it, we left after only one drink. Very disappointed as this pub came highly recommended, thankfully the day was rescued by great service and a friendly welcome at The Old Workshop.

Walked and drove past this pub a million times without giving it a chance, but went in for the first time yesterday, very impressed, friendly staff, great mix of ales and lagers and the beer garden was an unexpected gem, very cool!

Used to sell the best beer in Sheffield when it was run by Eddie and Pat. Now under new management, and it still sells the best beer Sheffield. Carry on.
