Hillsborough pub reopens after facelift
14 March 2008, By Nick Ward

A POPULAR Sheffield watering hole is set to reopen with a brand new look after a 500,000 refit. The Park in Wadsley Lane, Hillsborough, closed in December to be refurbished and will reopen on Tuesday March 18.

Landlady Julia Kelly said: "The pub has been totally revamped both inside and out, and we are all very impressed with it. The aim of the refurbishment was to create a relaxing, welcoming traditional British pub and that is exactly what it has done. "We have worked hard to make sure that there is something for everyone."

The Park, named after Hillsborough park, is a large rather unspectacular brick building at the top corner of the park on Wadsley Lane. As a first time visit, it felt slightly off-putting from the outside. there is a small car park to the side, and outdoor seating to the front.
***
inside there is a large central bar. There are two bar areas and a small comfy snug as you enter the front. The place is a bit grand, partly timbered, and has the feel of a large city house. Moving round to the back there is a large lounge for diners with about four seating areas, seating around 50-60. I noticed there was a brisk lunchtime trade with diners, and the staff were busily running in and out with meals, which seemed to be quite popular. the bar and catering staff were all very chirpy and friendly.
***
I checked out the menu, which offered a good range of meals, with daily special at 3, standard mains at 4-6, grills at 7-10. sunday lunch was advertised at 4.99, with tuesday curry+drink 4, thursday 2 steak meals with bottle of wine 10.
***
two of the rooms had 3 cask hand-pumps, normally serving pedigree, black sheep and tetley bitter at around 2. However all the pumps were off on my visit! Keg J.Smiths bitter was 1.85.
***
verdict:
On approach, I was rather expecting a disappointment. But on spending a little time in there I have to say I was very satisfied all round, and would be keen to return and try the lunchtime meals. Particularly when the cask ales are back on!
The place is kept very clean [including the toilets], the meals and ale look good, all the staff were quick, polite and seem happy in their work.
All-in I'm happy to give this place an 8.

This pub is good for watching sports, especially with it being across the park from Sheffield Wednesday FC, has a TV with Sky Sports, however this pub is very smokey throughout, had to go outside halfway through the Chelsea and Manchester United game to get some fresh air.
