This pace was not what I expected it to be as it's in Sheffield suburbia and is quite a large suburban former Ember Inn. It looks like it's been extended and is open plan split into areas.
There was a Motown soundtrack playing but overall it was fairly quiet, possibly due to a beer festival going on in a marquee in the large garden.
I counted thirteen hand pumps roughly half of which were taken up with Abbeydale beers then a cider and the rest guests.
I tried Abbeydale Absolution (£3.60) & Moonshine (£3.30), Scruffy Dog Sit! Ra & Hoppity Dawg (£3.60) and Welbeck Abbey Duck Decoy (£3.50).
I thought this was a decent enough place but a bit suburban. It's GBG 2020 listed and I'd certainly return.

By my count there are a round dozen hand pumps here, though I didn't try shaking a stick at them. With five regulars from Abbeydale and seven "guests" (which can include Abbeydale beers, and often one from their Dr Mortons series), this should indeed be a drinkers paradise, though I'm afraid I find Abbeydale beers a little too samey, blonde and not really to my taste, so that leaves "only" five beers for me to choose from on my infrequent visits here. That said, it's a fine and welcoming pub, with the feeling of a well-used local facility about it, and for a pub so far out of the city centre to stock this many real ales is unusual in my experience. The small queue which had formed at 11:58 on Christmas morning as we approached is testament to its popularity. I've never had food here: the only time I felt a little peckish when in this pub turned out to be a non-food day (Tuesday). It's a bit of a trip out, but there are others to break the journey, so well worth it, I would say.

Date of visit: 25th December 2014

A more recent visit (December 2015) found a large extension built onto the side of the pub, with now a much more food-led feel to the place. There's still the large selection of beers, but to me less of a local pub atmosphere. This may have been exacerbated by the pre-Christmas crowd, so a further visit may be required. A notable addition is the new gents toilet downstairs, with urinals fashioned from aluminium beer barrels.

With more handpumps than you could shake a stick at,this pub is a drinkers paradise.From the outside it has that comforting traditional Victorian look,and the two interior rooms have much of interest.To the left of the front door is the main seating area and the very well stocked bar.There are wooden deviders,traditional tables and chairs,some banquettes and a few sofas.The carpet and many books on display gives this room the feel of a comfortable lounge.There is also a raised area with views over the garden.The room to the right of the entrance is used for dining and also contains an alcove for darts and an upright piano.
As Gill notes there is a very good Sunday carvery with a choice of meats at a most reasonable £5,I didn't inspect the food menus for other days but my guess is that would be equally tasty.
The highlight is the ale.As this is the defacto brewery tap for Abbeydale,five of their offerings were on during my trip namely Absolution,Deception(£2.70),Moonshine,Brimstone and Daily Bread(£2.30) at what I consider to be very reasonable prices and in good nick.There are a further 8 handpumps with a wide variety of largely local microbrewers output,too many to list here.There are also some craft keg beers and a very long list of bottled beers by the entrance,all most impressive.
In what is a smart suburb on the desirable West side of Sheffield,I was surprised to find such an emporium of ale,and if you have time to drag yourself away from the SuperTram Valley of Beer crawl,The Rising Sun makes another outstanding target for any beer tourist.Listed in the 2012 GBG and very highly recommended.
