My resolve to come here more often in 2018 amounted to 14 visits that year, but they tailed off after the summer when the regular beer changed from Balck Sheep to Barnsley Bitter. It was still that way on my first visit this year, but on my latest time through the door there was a pleasant change: Blue Bee Hillfoot Bitter, a very well made and properly bitter beer brewed here in Sheffield. If it's the same next time, I'll be back to making this a regular haunt.

I found this pub to be a slightly strange hybrid between a modernised pub and the sort of traditional boozer it clearly once started out as. You enter past a few small pavement tables, into a dark corridor with a fairly drab small seating area off to the left, with space for a few tables and chairs around a decent looking fireplace. Continuing along the corridor, you eventually emerge out into the bar area, with the servery to the rear left and some limited seating options opposite. The bar has a nice dark wood counter with copper trim and a white tile, pump clip lined bar back. The bar’s canopy and numerous dark wood beams throughout this room are also covered in pump clips and there is a large TV screen in the front corner, above a collection of board games. High tables and stools comprise the majority of the seating options, although there is a banquette underneath a stained glass window with a smart floral design. Elsewhere, there is a dartboard tucked away in another corner, next to a ‘Gilmour’s’ etched glass window and a door leads through to a rear room with more seating, mostly banquettes, a tiled fireplace with a ‘Gilmour’s’ mirror above and another TV screen. Music was playing fairly loudly and was almost entirely Irish themed (Molly Malone, The Commitments etc...), whilst the menu seemed to be based around soul-food classics, all of which made me feel this pub has a bit of an identity crisis.
On the bar there were found hand pumps offering Acorn Summer Pale, Magic Rock High Wire, Dead Parrot Kato Nwar and Stancill Barnsley Bitter. The Summer Pale was a reasonable £3.00 a pint and in reasonably good condition, although far from perfect.
I thought this pub had no idea what it wanted to be – is it a contemporary or traditional pub? Does a menu from the Deep South go with a soundtrack from Ireland? Is the beer actually any good or not? Who can be sure? There were certainly elements that I liked, but in trying to cover many bases, I felt that it didn’t really do any of them any justice and I was considerably less comfortable here than I was in the Grapes next door as a result.

One of my new year's resolutions - in fact, probably the only one - is to go to the Dog & Partridge more often, after having several perfect pints of Black Sheep Best Bitter here last year. I know, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but to my taste buds it's a pretty good substitute for the long lost Leeds Tetleys; when well kept, as it always is here. Black Sheep is a well balanced session bitter with a lingering, dry, bitter aftertaste and that well-known hop flavour that people with strange beards deride as "twiggy". Well, I love twigs - bring them on! And I'll be coming here more often in 2018.
