Only a short visit to this one as it was the last stop before catching my train back down to the smoke and I primarily came here to look at the small snug behind the bar which fortunately, despite the pub being quite lively on this early Saturday evening, was completely empty and I had it to myself.
Same four ales on as mentioned below and I finally succumbed to trying the Abbeydale Moonshine which wasn’t too bad a pale ale and decidedly better than their Daily Bread I had earlier on this visit to Sheffield.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Red Lion

Attractive frontage with bold Wards signage still showing the original ownership. The slightly split-level 'L'-shaped interior has been refurbished in a semi-traditional style, but the small side extension (with a compact front patio terrace) is more modern in appearance. Also has a pool table and a nice hidden snug. Four real ales on handpump: two from Stancill - Barnsley Bitter and the Blonde (£1.80, half) - Abbeydale Moonshine and Holy Grail from Black Sheep.

It's a few years since I've been here. Previous visits were encouraged by live sport on TV - I can remember persuading the landlord to show a Luton Town match in the little corner snug for me and a couple of friends while a different match played on the big screen in the main bar. It seems they don't do live sports any more - at least, with Royal Ascot on ITV and World Cup cricket on Sky there was only vacuous afternoon chatter on, and it wasn't even muted. I took my half to the snug, where there are no speakers. Black Sheep Bitter used to be a go-to beer here, or Timothy Taylor Landlord, but on this occasion the Black Sheep offering was the blonde and bland Monty Python's Holy Grail; in addition they had Abbeydale Moonshine, and Stancill Blonde and Barnsley Bitter. My half of Barnsley was only so-so and set me back what I still consider a whopping £1.80. The snug is a pleasant room to sit in for a quarter of an hour, but I'd like a better beer to help me pass the time there.
