Has earth anything to show more fair than a pint of ale and a fat golden pie? There’s nowhere better to enjoy this hearty combination than the Broadie.
Complete with chunky chips, murky mushy peas and ladles of gravy, the pies comprise of beautifully fatty flaky pastry generously filled with your choice of succulent meat or some concoction of vegetables and cheese.
It’s hard to look past this signature dish but, if you're looking to branch out, the salmon salad is a great lighter offering, the no-nonsense fish and chips are first rate, and the veggie sausages are the best around.
The food’s better than most so-called gastropubs can boast and, with main courses all below a tenner and puddings around £4, it’s top scran for a good honest price. It's our favourite place for a Sunday roast too, especially when they keep the gravy boat topped-up.
They're not short on options for washing down their delicious meals either, with a bar lined with ales from near and far, plus a whiskey map of Scotland to work your way through. After your meal, move across into the bar area and snap up one of the booths, beautifully put together from reclaimed railway doors during the pub's restoration in 2011, or head to the huge beer garden to enjoy your booze in the open air.
Make sure you book ahead; situated on the edge of Meersbrook and Nether Edge, the Broadfield tends to be full of hungry climbers heading back after a day in the Peaks, or weary shoppers ready for a rest after pottering around Sheffield's Antiques Quarter – see our beer trail of the area and make a day of it between shopping for retro knickknacks.
