    Coach & Horses Dronfield


    I didn't realise that most pubs I take my wife in are a bit dodgy until she exclaimed "it's really nice Mark" when we walked into The Coach & Horses at Dronfield. It appears she was expecting somewhere a bit "spit and sawdust".

    The C&H is owned by Sheffield FC and sells beers from the excellent Thornbridge Hall brewery. It also though sells a deecnt range of foreign bottled beers and carefully chosen draught keg products. It's anything but spit and sawdust being actually pretty smart.

    Thornbridge beers available on my visit were:

    Wild Swan
    Lord Marples
    Redbrick
    Jaywick
    Jaipur

    I tried them all except the Redbrick and particularly liked the first two on the list. Jaipur was a bit disappointing, being a little warm which I'm told is very unusual here.

    Although I didn't eat the menu looked really appetizing wih some lovely looking choices.

    It was a well spent hour and one I hope to repeat again. The pub is having a beer festival on the next bank holiday weekend with a large selection of Thornbridge beers but also a good range of other brewers beers such as BrewDog, Dark Star and Marble. I wish I were going.

    It's a superb pub. FWIW the Jaipur and Kipling I had there on Thursday were the right side of cool. Really looking forward to the festival!
