Nestled in the heart of the picturesque of Loxley Valley, a mere stone’s throw from Sheffield’s hustle and bustle, is a country pub that is a veritable sanctuary of good food, hearty ales, and warm hospitality – The Wisewood Inn.
Stepping inside, one is welcomed by a cozy and inviting atmosphere, with the pub’s charm only enhanced by the stunning view of the surrounding landscape that can be enjoyed from the outdoor seating area. The Inn operates seven days a week, opening its doors from noon until 11 PM. It is a place that is as consistent in its hours as it is in delivering a memorable dining experience.
The menu at The Wisewood Inn is an ode to traditional pub grub, with a particular emphasis on quality and a keen sense of what makes a dish truly satisfying. A standout among the many tasty options is the Wisey Meat & Potato Pie. A generous serving of this pie could easily be the highlight of your visit, as it was for me. The pie was an absolute treat, brimming with succulent meat that melted in the mouth. Paired with chips, mushy peas, and a delectable serving of Henderson’s gravy, it’s a meal that leaves a lasting impression. However, if chips aren’t to your fancy, you’re unlikely to miss them amidst the robust flavours of the pie and peas.
And let’s not forget the drinks. The Wisewood Inn has earned a sterling reputation for its selection of real ales, a fact attested to by its having been awarded CAMRA Pub of the Month in both July 2017 and April 2020. Visitors often recommend the delicious cask ale, lager, or craft beer, with each drink adding to the authentic pub experience.
If the idea of a Mixed Grill tempts your palate, then The Wisewood Inn will not disappoint. The portions are generous, making the price tag of £24 seem more than fair. Each component of the dish is cooked to perfection, bringing a harmony of flavours that is sure to delight any meat lover.
The Tuna Jacket Potato, on the other hand, might require a closer look at the menu before ordering. The dish is served with plain tuna, which could be a surprise if you were expecting the common Tuna Mayo. Despite this, the quality of the food remains consistently high across the menu, and all dishes are cooked with care and expertise.
All in all, a visit to The Wisewood Inn is an experience that leaves you satisfied and eager to return. It’s a place that takes the quintessential British pub experience and elevates it to something truly special, all while maintaining a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Whether you’re a fan of traditional pub classics, looking to enjoy a pint of real ale, or simply seeking a relaxing place to dine amidst beautiful scenery, The Wisewood Inn should be at the top of your list.
