Our party of four ate lunch in the restaurant on 17th Sept. It was a clean bright room with a beautiful outlook. Three different meals were ordered and the consensus was that all meals were excellent and interesting and beautifully served, and came with a variety of vegetables instead of the usual easy option of carrots and peas. Although portions were not enormous they were quite adequate for a normal appetite. The staff were cheerful and sufficiently attentive.
prices are a couple of pounds above the average pub grub, but this is a cut above the average 'Dog and Duck'. We will certainly be back

Visited The Druid Inn on the reputation of the newly formed Artisan in Sheffield (Richard Smith Group) which is superb.

Comparing like for like at lunch time, the Druid Inn was a let down. Service extremely slow and intermittent with poor attention to detail. Hot food served on cold plates, presentation of food was disappointing. Some of our party receiving their main courses way in advance of others.

I had one of their award-winning steak sandwiches this lunchtime, washed down with a glass of Hartingtons Bitter. Excellent!

One of the chefs/owners Richard Smith's mother was visiting. She proclaimed her Summer Fruit Pudding was the best!

Just to support the previous poster. My wife and I have eaten at the Druid three times in May 2005 and the food is exceptionally good - though not cheap - we would certainly recommend that people who were previously put off give it another try. Posted by alanbloor

Just to let you know that The Druid Inn, Birchover has recently been taken over and revamped. I went the other day and was greeted by friendly staff and a well varied menu, all items homemade right down to the ice cream and sorbet.I believe the new owners also have restaurants in Sheffield so i guess it's in pretty good hands. Give it another try if you're in the area. Posted by alexander1

Having had a meal at the Druids yesterday I can quiet honestly say is was one of the worst places I have dinned in a while. The staff were very curt if not even rude. The food was only very average and the Halibut less than fresh. The evening ended at 9.30 after a 30 minute wait we were told they had no tea or coffee to serve which I find in itself very bizarre. Rest assured we will not be returning or recommending it to anyone else Posted by BA

Sounds great dunitt?
Do yourself a big favour, don't walk in here on an evening expecting a night at the 'Slaughtered Lamb'.
All of the tables are set, clothes, cutlerey ( no sauce bottles! ) .
There is a bar but only one bar stool and you can't have a fag!
I found the whole experience rather sad.
Stu assures me that the place is magic for a pint on the terrace on a lovely day after a scramble around Rowtor.

Right next to Rowtor Rocks.
Beer and Food.
Child friendly and wheeclhair access.

Altho' there's a no-smoking policy throughout the Pub, so you might be better off down The Red Lion.....They do a local 9 Ladies beer too.
