Bradfield Brewery Acquires Village Pub in Wharncliffe Side

Sheffield based Bradfield Brewery have taken ownership of the Wharncliffe Arms Public House situated in Wharncliffe Side, Sheffield.

The pub was put on the market for sale in July 2019 after a short period of closure. Bradfield Brewery, having a keen interest in traditional style community public houses, vested their interest and subsequently were successful in the purchase of the property.

With contracts now exchanged, the brewery are keen to get the doors open and give a warm welcome to customers old and new.

Shortly to become the third Brewery Tap for Bradfield Brewery, the Wharncliffe Arms will feature a selection of cask ales from the Farmers Ales range produced by the brewery, as well as a great selection of fine wines, spirits and soft drinks.

The pub was previously renowned for its community feel and friendly atmosphere and this is something the Brewery will be keen to reinstate.  

Operating a public house venue is not something new for Bradfield Brewery who have enjoyed over a decade of success at their original Brewery Tap, The Nags Head at Loxley as well as continued success with their more recent acquisition, the King and Miller at Deepcar.

Bradfield Brewery is based on a busy working farm in the picturesque village of Bradfield in Sheffield. Since brewing their first cask ale in 2005, the brewery has grown from strength to the strength with their Farmers Ale range now available in outlets nationwide.

John Gill, Director at Bradfield Brewery, on the acquisition said “We are excited at the opportunity to serve another local community with a traditional style public house which will offer great ales in a friendly atmosphere. We strongly believe that traditional pubs should remain a part of our society and we are pleased to have secured this opportunity to bring this offering to the local community of Wharncliffe Side”.

The Wharncliffe Arms will be re-opening soon, with a date yet to be confirmed.  The Brewery will be recruiting for a ‘live in’ manager for the day to day running of the pub.
