News: Stone & Taps launches after revamp


New Rotherham pub, the "Stone & Taps" has launched its street food gourmet burger and stonebaked pizza menu following a revamp.

Earlier this year, Hawthorn Leisure acquired the High Street site from J D Wetherspoon for an undisclosed sum, one of eleven recent acquisitions by the innovative new pub company across the country.

The former Corn Law Rhymer is housed in a property purpose built for the Yorkshire Bank when it opened in 1968. It is on the site of the long-standing Crown Inn which was first recorded in 1605. Previously know as The Litten Tree, the Stone & Taps has recently undergone a £100,000 makeover.

The venue is keen to highlight its new food offer with a VIP celebration night seeing samples of gourmet burgers, chicken platters, and plates of creative stone baked pizzas were offered throughout the evening. The Cheeseburger and Duck & Hoisin pizzas were the clear favourites whilst the "build your own" pizzas stimulated a lot of interest, promising even more exciting combinations on future menus. 


Cllr. Lynsday Pitchley, the Maoyr of Rotherham even offered a helping hand to welcome the new pub into town sampling her own "shaken not stirred" tipple, the classic and much loved cocktail favourite, Woo-Woo.

Premium draught products, local brewery ales and on tap Prosecco are also part of the revamp, as is the continued focus on catering for football fans with the New York Stadium nearby, in addition to weekend revellers.

Hawthorn Leisure was formed in 2013 to acquire, invest in and support pubs across the UK. Backed by Avenue Capital Group, May Capital LLP and management, its first major deal saw it acquire a portfolio of 275 tenanted and leased public houses from Greene King in 2014. It currently operates 340 sites across mainland UK and the estate is combined of managed, managed franchised and leased and tenanted pubs.
