Will Larter left this review about Stop Inn Time

We had planned this trip by bus out to Rotherham's newest micropub a few weeks beforehand, checking opening times on Facebook and WhatPub, so it was a surprise, to say the least, to find it not yet open when we walked from the bus stop. It turned out that later opening times in the early part of the week were because of building work going on in the back yard - more of a function room than a fag shelter, apparently. "It's on Facebook", the owner told us. Anyway, after making spaniel eyes at him for a couple of minutes, we were glad when he relented and let us in for a beer. (The next bus was an hour later, so we'd have made a pathetic sight, stood around outside.)

The interior is very smart and modern, with a clock theme justifying the clunky name above the window. (Doesn't "stop in" mean "not go out"?) There are four hand pumps on the bar (see photo), two dark ones and two pale; plus seven keg fonts, of which three were for ciders. There's also a large selection of spirits and one of the regulars popped in for a coffee while we were here. (So, not so much closed as open, then.) I asked how he got on with keeping four real ales when that was obviously not the main attraction, and he said they last up to nine days with the cask breather. We each tried three out of the four beers before our bus arrived, and they were all in very good nick. We'll probably be back some time, but will check the opening times again before boarding any buses.
