Woodman, Masbrough
Has re-opened after major refurbishment.Four ever-changing cask beers are on offer and initial reports on quality are very good.Now part of the Waverley group run by well known local landlord Ron Woodthorpe.

Belvedere, Moorgate

Beer range incorrectly quoted in last issue of Inn Touch. The usual cask beers are Timothy Taylor Landlord and Flowers ipa, though the odd other beer has been tried. Please accept our apologies for this error. The ipa is on sale £1.78 a pint, cheap for the area.

Station Hotel, Treeton

The Tetley cask has gone to make way for a second guest beer.Both are priced at an extremely reasonable £1.60, Greene King Abbot ale or Old Speckled Hen being recent offerings. The excellent curries are now available as part of the normal menu.

Hind Whiston

Re-opened on May 29th as a Six Coutinents {formerly Bss}Ember Inns pub with mike toop as manager at the moment there are four cask beers on handpump: Fullers London Pride Draught Bass , Tetley Bitter and Stones Bitter. Though the quality is good the prices are high with £2.17 a pint being asked for the London Pride! The place itself is light and airy and very comfortable. Note:Hotel has now been dropped from the name.

Sitwell Arms, Whiston

Recently saw a steep rise in the price of guest beers from £1.90 to £2.05-2.10, depending on which beer it is.Interestingly, the other two Whiston pubs have seen a recent decrease in price of guest beers; down from £2.05 to £2.00 at the Chequers, and from£2.05-2.10 a pint to £2.00-2.05 at the Golden Ball, at one time far and away the most expensive pub in the village. It is hoped that a small refurbishment of the Ball will take place soon. Hopefully, Six Coutinents have realisrd the potential of the pub without major alteration.

Milburn House, Thrybergh

Shaun & Claire Davies {not Tim and Ricky Cooling as stated in the previous inn touch} have replaced the Batemans XB with a changing guest.Tetley Bitter is on the other handpump.Br>
Church House, Wath

Kenny & Barbara Adnitt will shortly be leaving for the new Wetherspoons at Wombwell. They have done a splendid job at the Church House, and we wish them well at Wombwell. Our loss is Barnsley`s gain.

Nellie Denes, Town Centre

Is no longer being run by the Pub People Co. And is now run directly by Old Mill Brewery as a tenancy. Currently only selling Old Mill Bitter, it is hoped to return to selling two cask beers in the near future.

Effingham Arms, Bradgate, Sir Colin Campbell, Kimberworth and the Wilton, Kimberworth

Alma Tavern, Town Centre

Licensee,Mark Hunter has been told that the pub must stand alone following the financial difficulties of the holding company.This applies to the other pubs in the Country Pub Group also.There seems to have been a reduction from 6 cask ales to 4 subsequently, but all are still from small brewers. Paul Brooks, from the Bay Horse, Pitsmoor,is the new Manager.

Rockingham Arms, Wentworth

Cris Kiddy left the pub in May and new managers Lynn and Kevin Locker took over on May20th. One of Chris`s last acts was to install a changing guest beer alongside the extensive range of Scottish-Courage beers.

Kimberworth Park, Kimberworth Park

Now has changed beer range of Mansfield Bitter at £1.64, and Stones and Tetley Bitters at £1.75. The latter two having replaced Banl`s Bitter and Mansfield Dark Mild.

Effingham Arms, Town Centre

Is selling Fullers London Pride at £1.40 a pint during "happy hours" after 7pm Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday. At other times the price is£1.70. Regrettably there is no such reduction for halves, which CAMRA feels is discrimination against women drinkers ,car drivers and those, who for various reasons may only wish to drink halves. Why can`t all drinkers share in the "happy hours"?

Fitzwilliam Arms Hotel, Taylors Lane Parkgate

Is now selling a changing guest beer alongside the Stones Bitter and John Smith`sCask.Also offers good priced accommodation.

Storyteller, Parkgate Retail World

Still only sells tetley bitter from an impressive line of 8 handpumps.The quality is good though for a family type pub.
