“Not Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My husband and I have just returned from a meal out at the Strines Inn and it was not great!
We both opted for a burger myself the vegetarian and my husband the cheese burger. They arrived quite quickly but the burger was sat in a cheap breadcake that was neither buttered nor toasted. There was no salad on the burger and so it was very dry and, to be honest, boring. The small amount of chips were soggy and only a small half-hearted side salad accompanied the meal. In conclusion we will probably give the Strines a miss in future as they need to try alot harder.

“First Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

A beautiful day helped but the service and food (salads had by both of us) were excellent. We will be back come rain or shine!

“A lovely pub with lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Set in the middle of nowhere but only 10 minutes drive from Sheffield, this 13th century building is cosy and welcoming, as are the staff (welcoming that is!) The menu has lots to offer, including many vegetarian dishes, and the portions are large, tasty and well-cooked and presented. If it is warm enough to sit outside the views are amazing, and if it is cold the small rooms and real fires ensure warmth and comfort.

“Overpriced Un-adventurous food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Myself and a friend called on our way back to Sheffield from Manchester. Afterwards we wished we had either turned off earlier to the Yorkshire Bridge or just waited until we had got back into Sheff.
The location is obviously great, and that will never change, but it seems they're resting on their laurels. It takes no time and costs very little money to add a few chips or a little salad garnish to a meal.
I had chilli con carne served in a giant yorkshire pudding. The giant yorkshire was an 'Aunt Bessie' probably from Morrisons at around 0.80p and the small amount of chilli inside (very tasty mind) probably equated to 3 table spoons. That was it ! No chips and no salad. Not only did it look drab, it didn't even fill a small hole. This dish was around £8.90.
The place itself is looking very tired and could really do with a good overhall. TAKE MY ADVICE....GO TO THE YORKSHIRE BRIDGE.

“Resting on its location, and it's reputation from old.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

I used to love driving out to this pub and enjoying a meal with my other half, family or friends. But in my opinion the food has gone downhill after the last couple of visits. Service still great, real ale and warm fires would still make me pop in for a pint, but wont be dining for a while.
