Grenoside’s Norfolk Arms pub is set for a grand re-opening after being transformed by one of the city’s most innovative brewing companies.
Stancill Brewery acquired the Norfolk Arms back in May and after completing major renovation work are now set to open up the new-look pub to the public this Friday.
The Brewers, who formed in 2014 after sourcing brewing equipment from the closing Oakwell Brewery in Barnsley, have already won numerous awards for their Barnsley Bitter as well as brewing Sheffield’s first ever Pilsner ale, the Stancill Pilsner.
The self-proclaimed ‘beer enthusiasts’ have already received rave reviews for their transforming of other pubs in the region, including the Horse & Jockey at Wadsley, and are determined to make the Norfolk Arms a similar success.
Ashleigh McNain, who acts as landlady for Stancill’s Pubs, said: “At the Horse & Jockey we work with a small and dedicated team. We don’t serve food but we invite local street vendors to sell from the premises from Thursday to Saturday.
“We’ve hosted everything from the popular Netheredge Pizza Day on a Wednesday to quiz night on a Tuesday and arts and crafts events. With the Norfolk Arms we don’t want to just copy what we’ve done at the Horse & Jockey, but mirror and emulate this, changing it if we need to and making it even better.”
The launch event starts at 6pm and will include live music from local artists, ten real ales, craft beer and buffalo burgers, amongst other street food.
Mrs McNain added: “The launch night at the Horse & Jockey was a huge success, you couldn’t even move inside. Numbers wise we’re hoping for lots and we’re looking forward to hopefully receiving a positive response from the public and making the Norfolk Arms a really welcoming place.”
