Blacksmiths Clayworth About Us

A little information regarding The Blacksmiths.

Blacksmiths at Clayworth

About us

The Blacksmiths was renovated in 2011, with the intention to recreate the image of the Inn on the outside as it was hundreds of years ago, while at the same time provide modern facilities with warm and inviting open spaces. 

The interior is a blend of the old and new with traditional tables mixed in with more contemporary furnishings dotted around each room. The centrally placed log burning stove offers a warm and cosy atmosphere during the winter months, and the magnificently designed walled garden area at the rear of the Blacksmiths is a real sun trap where our customers can enjoy their drinks in the sunshine.

The Oak Room, on the first floor provides a light and airy private dining area where we can accommodate larger parties for those special occasions.

We offer a modest, but always interesting menu, which will change regularly to benefit from locally sourced seasonal produce.

in and around the blacksmiths

LOCATION - We are near the Chesterfield Canal and there a lot of great walks in our locale. We are also very close to Doncaster Racecourse, Clumber Park and Yorkshire Wildlife Park so are the ideal way to end a lovely day out!

GARDEN - our garden area is a beautiful sun trap in the warmer months but also provides a cosy backdrop for those cooler evenings. Dining and drinks are available in the garden area. 

DOGS - We welcome your four legged friends in our bar area until 5.30pm and in our garden until closing time. Come and join us for a drink and we will arrange a bowl of water for your furry companion.
