Another Irish pub at the end of the High Street and adjacent to the Frenchgate shopping centre. We preferred this one to the Masons Arms. There is a small drinking area at the front and a long narrow bar up some steps with a kitchen to the rear. It was much quieter than the Masons Arms. Ales are from local microbreweries. On our visit, they had Doncaster Cheswold Bitter and Glentworth Siesta, as well as Black Sheep Best Bitter. A narrow passageway to the side of the steps provides disabled access as well as a route to the rear of the pub when the bar area is crowded. The barmaid was friendly enough. Worth a visit.

Visited this pub at the weekend. The Glentworth ale was well kept, however the barmaid was about friendly a bull dog with a sore head. The pub itself is a nice if odd shaped pub... the front bar was empty however there were a few people further down.. they did have sky sports which was great to have a decent pint and watch the Sat night game..... there are better real ale pubs in Donny, this one isnt that bad....but losing the high bar has lost its main feature...

I would agree about the loss of the "high bar" which I remember from days long ago (I think this was a Ward's of Sheffield brewery pub?) It has a small drinking area at the front and then you go up to the main bar and the long thin lounge area at the back. Local trade/shoppers and handy for the bus and train stations. Good Glentworth ale at �1.95 a pint. Pleasant enough but has lost one unusual feature that set it apart from other pubs.

I visited this pub as it looked inviting and used to sport the 'highest bar in the UK' - what a dissapointment.
The pub is quite basic inside, and certainly nothing special, whilst the points which should make it 'different' have been ruined. The front area should be a clutch of benches surrounding a great open fire, but this remained bricked up and cold. As for the 'high bar', well I presume 'improvements' over recent years have built in front of this and now it stands at a normal height.
The only plus point was the locally brewed Glentworth Ale on draught, but it really should try harder if it wants to compete with others in the town centre of Doncaster.

Haven't been in for 4 months but the beer was great. According to Donny Drinker Timothy Taylor's Landlord Ale is permanent and they have six rotating guest ales. Well worth a visit.
