Farfield Inn

A Grade II-listed Sheffield pub dating back to 1752, which was damaged in the 2007 flood, is set to be refurbished, and new workshops created, under new plans.

ABA Architecture & Interiors, on behalf of TOC Holdings, has submitted full planning and listed building applications to Sheffield City Council for work on the Farfield Inn, Neepsend.

The Farfield Inn survived the Great Flood of 1864 but was gutted by the city’s 2007 flood and has been disused for years. In 2018, it was sold at auction for £250,000, two-and-a-half times its guide price.

Planning permission is sought for the refurbishment of the ground trading area and the creation of six flats on the first and second floors. The building’s period features are set to be retained.

The plans also include the construction of a new two-storey building that will house a pair of workshops for artisan craftsmen. The existing outbuilding on the site will also be refurbished to provide workshop space.
