Stone & Taps big reveal …

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

On Thursday evening Sue and I tootled across town to the Stone and Taps [former Swim Inn] at 217-231 Glossop Road, Sheffield to attend the launch night.

It has undergone a fabulous makeover and it is looking great. There’s a garden theme running throughout with flowers and pitch fencing. Its a lot brighter than previous and very welcoming. I love the bold logo.

It was opened by the Lady Mayoress of Sheffield. There was a band performing a selection of catchy tunes , while waiters and waitresses walked around offering us slices of pizza, dough balls and Goose Island beer [a hop lover’s dream with a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, and long hop finish.] I can recommend them all.

Apparently there were chips too …but no chips passed these lips.

Not a bad way to spend a Thursday evening all things considering..

The Snug is  exactly that [below] and is where I will be heading next time I visit. More of an intimate area and very cosy.

Ideal for first dates …not that I’ll be going on any first dates soon, I think the BF might have something to say about that!

There’s a new menu that sounds delicious

What do you fancy? …a pint, craft beer, cask ale, cocktail, a coffee, gourmet burger, stonebaked pizza, curly fries…they do them all.

Burgers start from £7.00 and come served in a brioche bun with gem lettuce, gherkin , tomatoe , burger sauce and a side of fries. You can even build your own burger

I had my eye on the nachos and the dirty chips look like heaven [but not very healthy!]

They are also selling Prosecco on tap,  a genius idea,  as sampled by Sue below.

The toilets are lovely , with a definite retro feel. Look at that beautiful beige chair.

I have a ‘thing’ about toilets and as a young child used to mark them out of ten. I’m sure I’ve shared this information with you all before but for me its an important factor … nobody wants to use a grotty smelly toilet do they?

Selfie Friendly … and look at that chocolate chaise longue

Lots of quirky touches like the toilet signage above… and more flowers.
