Sheffield Berni inn

Recommended Posts

Hi Sheffield folks. IM needing help from those that are highly acquainted with sheffield city centre pubs/locals and pub restaurants over the past decades. Ive just bought a old solid wood bar table which has passed hands down the line and i was told it was from one of a berni inn in sheffield, but they didnt know which one. It has a old table number a metal disc with the number 30. The only places i can find about sheffields berni inns was the old no 12 (market tavern) berni inn steak house on orchard st or the Norton at meadowhead. The table has been painted multiple times over the years, i have just renovated it to duck egg blue. But i found when sanding it down, the original dark oak. So i would really love to know which place it was originally from. Maybe im grasping at straws but its a unsual table not like any i have seen before so maybe someone can recognize it?  I do hope so. Thanks for your time :)20190727_182245.thumb.jpg.b3c4ab423cd9ccd74592512c2cbebdd6.jpg

Hello   frechylass , The Old No 12 (Market Tavern) Berni Inn was on Exchange Street. I may be wrong here but I think the Dore Grill on Church Lane,  Dore was a Berni Inn. There are a few posts on here mentioning Berni Inns, There might be the odd comment in one of those that helps, link below  . ---------- EDIT I think the one on Orchard Street was just called Berni Steak Bar or something like that.

Hi Frechylass, The Berni Inn we used to go to in the late 60's/early 70's was the one at Norton. What a treat, steak, frozen peas and chips followed by Black Forest Gateau and washed down with schooners of sherry! The Queens Head in the centre of Chesterfield (one of the timbered buildings) was also a Berni Inn. We used to call the manager Napleon Solo because he looked like 'the Man from Uncle'! On one particular lively Saturday night Rob Fiddler swung on the chandellier and brought it down. My brother in law was the contract electrician and he had to go on Sunday morning and put it back!

To my knowledge the Dore Grill was never a Berni Inn, in the 60's/70's I think it belonged to Marsdens, an old Sheffield catering family.

Unfortunately I can't remember what the tables were like in either establishment!

The Berni Inn at Norton was great for lunch. I used to go with my boss and he loved the place.

 

But no meetings afterwards because I was looped.
