An interesting building, with art deco features such as the fireplace in the front bar and the refurbishment is largely in tune with the building: foxglove wallpaper in two of the rooms in shades of pink and (surprisingly) lilac. There are three bar counters in this multi-roomed pub, with a corresponding multitude of hand pumps selling almost exclusively Thornbridge beers. This is a downside for me, since I don't like the vast majority of their beers, and therefore plumped by default for the only stranger on the bar. This, however, could have been labelled Son of Thornbridge, because it had exactly that unbalanced bitterness and cloying aftertaste that I was trying to avoid. Oh well...

We went and sat in the front bar, which has been painted black and has a black floor too, the only brightness coming from the aforementioned fireplace (though unlit) and the bar billiards table in the corner. It was fairly busy, but with people split between the front and back outdoor seating and three internal areas, there was not much atmosphere. If there were other beers on I'd be more inclined to try this one again - others without my antipathy to the brewery will doubtless be pleased to visit as it stands.

The Cross Scythes is a largish pub in the woodseats area of Sheffield.
Once inside i went in a smartish lounge and i think there were other rooms in this pub.
There was only one real ale on here which was tetlet bitter and this was a nice drink.
There are a few picnic tables at the front of the pub for warmer weather.
