user reviews of the Keel Inn, Barnsley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Nice pub next to a supermarket where I chose to have lunch on my midweek visit to Barnsley. The restaurant appears to be separately owned. I was pointed in the direction of a small dining room to order food, after first ordering a drink at the bar. They no longer serve real ale here. On keg, there was Guinness, Strongbow, Strongbow Dark Fruits, Stella Artois, Fosters, Sam Smith's Sovereign Bitter, John Smith's, Carling & Coors Light. The interior is quite nice. The food was good value. But the barman/landlord seemed a bit miserable.

A fairly short (though potentially confusing) walk from the station, and doesn’t necessarily scream ‘pub’ from the outside. 2 ales available from interesting small breweries (Flaxen Horse and White Cross on my visit this week) which were a mixed bag quality-wise (though I did note that as the first customer in that day the beer wasn't pulled through at all, which probably explains why).

The interior has lots of nautical tat scattered around (it's near the now filled-in canal), including a huge ships wheel by the bar and a load of gold balls above the bar (not sure why!). There are various cosy drinking areas - the circular seating area by the main door is a nice touch. There’s pool, darts and a TV available. Perhaps most interesting though are the table tops - which are covered entirely in old 1/2p coins!

Beware that this place doesn't open until 7 on weekdays.

Overall, not too bad though make sure that your beer is pulled through if you're ordering at 7:02pm!

Interesting pub, 5 minutes downhill from the station; its name recalls a nearby former canal. As one might expect, there is a “sailing” theme inside a quite attractive bar area, enhanced by the presence of two cask ales. A nice pub.
