FEBRUARY 2017 THE ELEPHANT ON TV

The Elephant & Castle will soon be seen on a Channel 5 documentary that follows the lives of two Barnsley teenagers who were severely injured at Alton Towers in 2016.

The Channel 5 production, yet to be named, features interviews with the teenagers in the Elephant & Castle. Channel 5 selected the venue after browsing through various Barnsley pub and restaurant web sites and deciding the Elephant's looked perfect. High praise indeed for our new site! The documentary will be shown later in the year - we'll let you know when it's due to be aired.

JANUARY 2017 YORKSHIRE POST REVIEW

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Stop for a while at this delightful former coaching inn, and you are stepping back some centuries into a rich social history. Many drinkers and diners have walked over the stone-flagged floors and on a very cold winter’s afternoon, as the log fire roars at one end of the bar, it’s a pleasant refuge from the outdoors.

A very jolly crowd, including our little trio, tucked in to warming food. In our case, some of the biggest roast pork baguettes that you have ever seen, with lashings of delicious gravy and some roast spuds thrown in for good measure. The designated drivers went for generously large mugs of freshly brewed coffee, missing out on a pint of Hardy and Hanson’s very best. The place is stylishly, but sympathetically decorated, in light greens and pastels, the furniture is comfortable and on the traditional side, and there are lots of nice wee touches – the tea-light holders on the tables are all in the shape of an elephant.

The staff are nearly all youngsters, smartly dressed, polite but outgoing, and the emphasis is on efficient service without hurrying anyone along. We hadn’t booked at a busy time of the week, but we were immediately offered a space, and very pleasant it all was.

MARCH 2017 NEW SIGNAGE!

We now have all our exterior signage and it looks fantastic!

The signs can be seen from every direction and the illuminated hanging sign looks very impressive at night. We think it's tranformed the look of the building!
