News: New owners for popular Rotherham venue


JR's @ The Courtyard in Wickersley has been purchased by leading regional businessmen Martin Green and Brett Simpson-Lyon, for an undisclosed sum.

Martin Green, who lives in Rotherham is managing director of leading entertainment provider Redtooth which is based in Barlborough as well as vice chairman at Sheffield United Football Club. Brett Simpson-Lyons is partner at SLA design, an architectural design company based in Sheffield which specialises in healthcare, residential, student accommodation and commercial projects.

The bar is set to undergo a complete refurbishment following the new ownership, during which time the bar will be given a new name and identity.

Martin Green said: "We are delighted to have acquired JR's @ The Courtyard and are very much looking forward to giving the venue a new look.

"We will be introducing a quiz night, a new food menu, theme nights and bank holiday events and that is just for starters. As part of my day job at Redtooth I work with the stars of ITV's The Chase and Eggheads and organise UK wide quiz events so a quiz night with The Beast from The Chase is already on the schedule.


"The bar has a very well established clientele both in the day time and on an evening and we are sure that they will all be impressed with the new look venue when the refurbishment has taken place.

"Wickersley is a fantastic part of Rotherham and the vibrant village centre has really blossomed in recent years. The café culture and nightlife is thriving and it really is becoming a go-to destination for fashion boutiques, homeware, interior and gift stores as well as restaurants and bars.

"Both Brett and myself are experienced within the leisure sector and will drawing on our years working within the industry to ensure that this new venture is successful.

"We really do have big plans for the bar and are looking forward to a VIP star-studded grand re-opening."
