I was going to try this pub today, but a high turnover of a certain type of clientele coming out for a smoke in the doorway put me off. It looks a bit small to be able to hide discreetly in a corner. It very much looks like a locals' pub from the outside and probably had net curtains until relatively recently. The real ale selection is meant to be promising but I wimped out and I suspect the pub would be better experienced of an evening or weekend rather than a weekday afternoon.

This old pub is a sort of J shape inside with a quieter seated area to the immediate left and the main bar area stretching alongside the right wall. There is a TV here which was off, a jukebox and a proper darts area right at the end. There were a few in on my Saturday afternoon visit including someone practising their darts.
The five hand pumps had Welbeck Abbey Seth Hillbilly Rye & Portland Black, Marston's Wainwright, Stancill Barnsley Bitter and Leeds Pale. I went for the Welbeck Rye (£3.00) which was excellent.
Yet again I missed the CAMRA discount but I thought this was well worth a visit. It's GBG 2018 listed.

A rose among the thorns! It is rare to find a worth while while pub in Doncaster these days as they are now very few and far between. Thankfully I stumbled across the corner pin after my train was delayed. Located only a five miniute walk from the central station down a shopping street on the corner.
once inside there is an old feel to the place with timber beans and old ceramic beer jugs dangling from the ceiling. On my visit and I am presuming on most visits there is a large gathering of the regular old boys who are all a nice enough bunch.
Beer wise this pub is one of the few in Doncaster to sell anything near to a decent range of real ales. The Stancill Barnsley bitter is a regular with four changing guests, on my visit they were one from Dukeries, a special poppy appeal beer form Wells and another I cant remember, one was turned around. My pint of Barnsley bitter was in very nice condition at £3 per pint. they also sell the every harder to find stones bitter ion keg which was popular with the locals on my visit.

For Doncaster it is a very nice pub in a place were there really are not very many nice pubs. I think this is or was at one stage in the good beer guide but to say its niche for having real ale everyone on my visit (18 people) were either drinking John Smiths, stones or lager which I found slightly strange, but I guess someone must be drinking the real ale, I would defiantly return again.
