(Pub1) The Eagle – a new pub and it is a Thornbridge pub, this used to be Cowshed, serving 2 cask and 8 keg ales, plenty of seats inside, they also have cans and bottles to drink in.
(Pub2) – Portland House – This is right outside the Nursery tavern, one of two micropubs (pubs in a shop) on this road, and they do have some nice guest ales, there is no music so this pub is nice and quiet. Opening times are late now so chances are you will find this pub closed.
(Pub3) Ecclesall Ale Club – a micro pub run by Brew Foundation and in my Top10 pubs of 2018, you will find about 5 cask and a good selection of keg lines and 100+ bottles and cans so no shortage of drinking in here.
(Pub4) – Porter Brook – It is quite a walk to the next pub, this one is a Greene King pub so their ales are always on, this is another pub showing sport as well, food is also served, they have a small beer garden at the back and front of the pub.
(Pub5) – Beer House – The 2nd micropub and this one has rotating guest ales, and they are quite nice, a very quiet pub and does get busy sometimes. 6 cask ales and about the same on keg, and you will be lucky to get a wifi signal.
(Pub6) – Lescar – now you walk around the corner of Hunters Bar and head down the back of Eccy Road, this one also has guest ales so you never know what to expect, food is served here and plenty of seats, there is a small beer garden at the front with a few tables. They also hold beer festivals in their main back room. There is also a beer garden at the back of the pub.
(Pub7) – Porter Cottage – This one features quite a few bands, and plenty of seats here, there is no food served, the ales are all the same except for one which rotates. If you are doing this walk on a Saturday then you will get a seat.
(Pub8) – Stags Head – if you walk up the hill you will see this pub just off the roundabout, a Thornbridge pub so yes it features all Thornbridge ales, plenty of seats and they do serve food, a beer garden is at the side.
If you walk down Sharrow Lane you will eventually come on London Road and walk back into town and take in a few more pubs.
These pubs will be Cremorne, Clubhouse and round the back to Beer Engine
