Now a fish 'n' chip shop. Disheartening.

By Barnsley Brewery I meant Acorn Brewery (whoops).

A bit of a disappointment, given the write-up in the Good Beer Guide. The exterior, despite a couple of nice architectural (Art Deco?) features is actually quite tatty and dull. The modernised interior is loud and lairy (especially so I thought, given it was a Tuesday afternoon!). With loud music competing against a loud TV and then the punters bellowing over both to make themselves heard.

5 hand pumps at the bar but only two ales actually on - (Black Sheep and Old Peculiar) the other pumps didn‘t have any indication that they get used much. My OP was good and was quite cheap - £2.40. There's a sign outside advertising Barnsley Brewery beers - but not one was available inside!

Basically it's a town centre bar which happens to sell a couple of decent quality beers. I guess if you’ve got a few minutes to kill waiting for train it’s worthwhile but if you’re in town for any length of time you’d be better off heading for the Dove or Keel.

closed when I visited on Sunday evening. Shame, given the previous reviews

I understand this is changing owners next week so the beer was a bit run down from when I was last in here. Theakstons XB, Acorn Barnsley Bitter and Bradfield Farmers Blonde. Beer was ok, pub nice enough being a large one bar establishment. Will have to see what the new owners do.
