It can be extremely therapeutic to have a big clear-out at home and discover items long since forgotten, and it’s even better when you can sell something on so that someone else can enjoy it. There’s nothing better than venturing out on a sunny Saturday morning with family and friends to hunt for fantastic bargains. Forget eBay and the like … the humble car boot sale offers the perfect platform for meeting like-minded people for exchanging items. Okay, so we’re not blessed with the best of weather here in the UK. If it does rain, then the area is tarmacked and there’s always good food and drink to enjoy in the Crosspool Tavern. Come rain or shine, there will always be traders and buyers willing to brave the elements in search of hidden gems that may be lurking on one of the many stalls. Just remember that even if you no longer need something, another person might – and by the end of the morning, you could have earned a tidy sum of cash for your unwanted items and helped the environment by recycling.
One of our local pubs has a new look and new menu.
On Friday 8 December, the Crosspool Tavern reopened with an expanded menu, including fresh dough pizzas, burgers, carvery meats and pub classics. Five new jobs have been created.
Speaking about the conversion general manager, Christopher Squire, said: “We’re excited about the new changes and are looking forward to welcoming the people of Sheffield to come and see what Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery is all about.
“We’re a real part of the local community and are looking to support local charities, projects and host a variety of events and activities that everyone can enjoy.”
Crosspool Tavern officially reopened its doors on Thursday night following a refurbishment.
Teams of contractors had been on site since Sunday night’s closure, completing structural changes, redecorating, laying new carpets and replacing soft furnishings. Staff returned at lunchtime on Thursday to set up the bar and restaurant ready for the 5pm public reopening.
Crosspool Tavern is closing for refurbishment at 8pm on Sunday 26 April, with the intention of reopening at 5pm on Thursday 30 April.
For the main opening event on Friday 1 May Thursday 30 April, Julia the manager is asking for your help.
Rather than getting a dignitary or celebrity to reopen the pub, Julia would like to find a local hero to do the honours. She explains: “It could be someone old or young who has helped in the community or raise money for charity; someone who has suffered a major illness or personal tragedy; or someone who has given their all for their country.”
If you have someone in mind you would like to nominate please pop in to the pub, call Julia at the Tavern on 0114 266 2113 or message Crosspool Taven via its Facebook page., giving the name of your suggested person and reasons why you’re nominating them. The best suggestions will be put to a vote.
