The Millowners Arms will host displays of Sheffield brewing heritage showcasing the many long lost local breweries and will also operate as a public house for special functions.

The building was a derelict store and the project started with a strip out of the steel frame mezzanine floor and damp proof treatment. The existing cast iron circular roof support columns remain and have been incorporated into the design. As part of the construction MWS Joinery Ltd built in an original 17th century stone fireplace. The design is of a typical old pub as decorated in the 1970’s, even down to the reclaimed telephone box outside, the nicotine stained walls, and also includes a ‘sheffield’ dartboard, (i.e. without trebles).

The doors and windows have been acid etched with the pub name, the bar has been made to measure complete with glass shelves and reclaimed beer pumps, period radiators and light fittings. All joinery works were manufactured in our specialist joiners shop.

The project has been carried out by Horbury Joinery as a design and build contract employing a local specialist architect.
