The Sheffield pub that looks like a castle on top of a hill with more than 1,000 positive reviews on Facebook

The Norfolk Arms in Ringinglow, sandwiched between Sheffield and the Peak District, is a favourite for students, walkers and families, writes Larissa Hurt.

The renowned pub is a short drive from Sheffield city centre and popular countryside villages like Hathersage and Castleton so it’s no surprise that an assortment of people flock there every day.

Throughout the summer there’s nothing better than having an ice-cold lemonade and a chicken and bacon caesar salad in the sunshine. The beautiful beer garden outside the stone-built old-fashioned gives pub-goers a bewildering view over the Mayfield valley.

This grade II listed bar, hotel and wedding venue has four cosy log fireplaces if you are cold and weary from your afternoon on Jacob’s Ladder. The homely pub, previously described as having a ‘romantic atmosphere’, couldn’t be better on a wintery day with a glass of warm mulled wine and a homemade fish pie.
