We went to see Ezio here in early February.
We have been a few times before and knew what a great venue it is.
The back room is cosy enough but big enough to handle big sounds.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, getting there early to have some food before the gig started.
We both had burgers which were very good.
Well done to all at the venue for good food and good music.
Well worth a visit.

This is a great local with a proper community feel. Its transformation from the Highcliffe has been impressive considering the general level of pub closures.
Being critical, there’s a lot to say.
Firstly the beer – Thornbridge. TBH even a couple of pints gives me a bad head, regardless of the brand. There’s a common taste to them, one which disagrees with me. I’m not the only one to have acknowledged this. I believe a lot of people recommend it just because it’s a localish brewery rather than focussing on the taste. I do accept that many do like it however.
I just wish the pub had a few local guest ales (Acorn, Abbeydale etc) though.
Kids! What’s become of this place – Wacky Warehouse or what. Don’t really want to sound like a grumpy old git but come on, little ones running about. It’s an accident waiting to happen. Now I appreciate parents’ dilemmas once they’ve got their little bundles of joy (I’ve a teenage tribe of my own) and the fact that the local demographic is one of middle class professionals who’ve had kids later than the national average but why not allocate the back room (gig-permitting) or the left hand (now half-partitioned) room on Friday/Sat evenings to families? I’m aware of many pissed off locals. I used to love going in early doors on a Friday but no more.
Staff – brilliant and friendly. They know their stuff, happy to discuss the beers and give samples. There seems to be a low staff turnover, another positive sign.
Prices – extortionate. The Sheaf View and many other decent pubs sell better beer for two thirds of the price. South-west Sheff pricing policy at work I guess. Means l have three rather than four pints.
Food – Now I am definitely a grumpy geezer regarding this subject and thankfully the Greystones hasn’t gone down this route. I thought it would, followed by Ember Inn style table numbers etc. It’s a pub for ****’s sake and gladly sticks to light snacks – seems to be good local produce (a tad pricey mind you). There’s plenty of local cafes nearby for those wanting food and coffee (and don’t start me off on pubs selling fancy coffees and ‘speciality’ teas.) The only ones drinking tea in a pub should be the drayman in the morning. Like I say, cafes for coffee, pubs for beer – it’s not rocket science, just winds (only mildly mind you) people of my ilk up! With so few decent pubs in existence, I feel it’s important to preserve pubs for what they were – a meeting place for people where you can have alcoholic drinks. Simple really.
Events:
Gigs: Incredible: lots of big names (and small names) of top quality appearing in the back room.
Quiz: The regular one is a bit silly really; for eg picture rounds asking you to identify which well known things relate to which chemical compound. I made that one up but the quiz isn’t up to the quality of others (say Nether Green Rising Sun). Many questions are a stab in the dark so therefore alienates many and isn’t (IMO) fun.
Despite the dodgy beer and half the patrons having an average age of 2- 3 years, I love the pub; the overall feel to the place is excellent and welcoming. Nice views of beautiful Sheffield from the front door too.

Came here last night for a gig. The back room and gig was fantastic and the pub has many great bands playing here. Ordered fish and chips and a curry. Fish and chips were served with French fries and the curry was luke warm. No check back on food was made. Friends of our arrive and instantly stated ‘ god this is a dirty pub’ and that’s the issue.
Kids were running around and dodging between customers carrying drinks but the main issue was the dogs.
I counted 9 dogs in the pub. The table next to one of the dogs was continually barking and they were at on their owners knee at the table. I’ve dog was eating treats from the table top. The customers were known to the staff who stroked the dogs several times with no hand washing seen on returning to the bar. Glasses were not collected at any time for 2 hrs and the tables were nit wiped at any time. Once the dogs left 2 customers immediately took their table. I only hope they were not eating from it.
I can understand a pub being dog and child friendly but the customers in this pub have allowed them to take over in a pub where the staff do not care to check their behaviour.
As a music venue the site is fantastic but as a pub it is simply dirty with poor food and staff who are too afraid of customers to correct their behaviour.
We will be back for other gigs but will drink elsewhere and arrive just before.

a small group of us went to the Greystones to see a band. We looked for a seat and to buy a drink. When trying to find somewhere in the side area we found many dogs- which was actually no problem except that one person had laid a blanket covering a seating area that would have seated three people and allowed her small dog to sit there. My friend went to the bar to buy drinks only to be tapped on the shoulder by the person,as he was being served,and asked not to step on the dog which she had taken up to the busy bar with her, leaving the blanket on the seat reserving the dogs place.

I have been a regular at this pub for many years and have always enjoyed the good beer selections, atmosphere, friendly staff and pizzas etc.... however... over the last year or so (it is still on the slide) it has become something of a creche atmosphere. Parents sit drinking whilst their precious brats cause mayhem outside, chasing dogs on scooters, climbing walls and anything else they can reach. Racing round tables, eating their own crisps etc that the parents bring in from the one stop shop over the road. Leaving rubbish ALL OVER that the bar staff have to tidy up. I have been in the pub when kids are plink plonking on the piano inside, screaming, throwing crayons all over (Not even really young ones either). Parents too drunk or inconsiderate to notice. I have on occasion hand delivered a child back to their parents as it was under my table with three dogs, pulling ears and tails!!! The entire Friday night situation there is an accident waiting to happen. I sincerely hope something gets done about this so we can go back to enjoying our beers in peace!

Four of us decided to meet up on a Friday night at the Greystones for a pizza and a beer, what a mistake. The carpark had been closed and tables from inside the pub were placed there so people could enjoy the sun. To say there was mayhem was an understatement. Children were running round the carpark, climbing on a wall which was labelled dangerous structure and another child was laid on top of the clothes recycling bin banging it like a drum whilst other children were stuffing rocks and pizza boxes into the drawer and pushing them into the bin. Another group of children had taken it upon themselves to pick very large stones up from the carpark and proceeded to throw them over the wall on to the pavement were cars had parked and people were walking along. One parent decided it would be a good idea to assist his child to climb onto an exterior window ledge where he balanced precariously. The parents were sat drinking whilst all this played out in front of us and no doubt if any of the children had been hurt the Greystones would have been held responsible. The pizzas and beer were good but it was impossible to relax as children were whizzing past on bicycles and scooters and stones were being thrown.

Good venue, good beer, great pies (not to be missed!), but if you don't like kids, avoid like the plague. I totally understand that establishments need to capture big markets, but this place is more like Charlie Chalk than a real ale pub. I'm not offering a solution, just an observation.

I would agree with a previous reviewer about badly behaved children. You are best off avoiding Fridays which is pizza night as the whole place is overrun by them. This is a well known fact locally. Parents seem to think that letting them run wild, shouting and screaming, is part of the attraction, as if it’s a Charlie Chalk party venue . It’s a bit of a shame really as the pizzas are really very good - cooked outside in a clay oven and brought in by waiting staff to eat at your table. I would add that the hot pies (with chips) that they have on most days are good and great value too. Having seen the size of the kitchen it’s a miracle they can produce anything worth eating , but they do, so full marks for that.
The pub itself is getting quite tatty now though and it needs a refurb.It’s one of those pubs with no curtains, carpets, lampshades and very little soft furnishings that seem popular now, esp with Thornbridge. The consequence of which is the whole pub acts like an echo chamber as there is nothing to absorb any sound. Even half full you finish up raising your voice to the person sat across from you. Full of screaming kids it can be hellish.
It’s also one of those pubs that let dogs sit on the upholstery (despite selling food). And it’s also one of those pubs if you ask the dog owner to shift their dog so you can sit down yourself, you are booking an argument.
This maybe what the management calls a family friendly atmosphere. Perhaps they do think that. Most people I know (l live locally) think it needs a bit more control...

Really nice pub, but always full of 3 year olds running around, even up till 9:30-10pm. The beer is great but I'd stay away from drinking too much of the Thornbridge ones.
