Situated on the busy Barnsley Road just off junction 37 of the A1(M). The Marr Lodge is in the historic village of Marr, sat on the main road (A635) between Barnsley and Doncaster. Although now mainly modern, Marr does have a number of outstanding features; the remains of an iron-age barrow sits at the junction of Barnburgh, Marr and High Melton and can be seen through aerial photographs.
The Marr Lodge reopened on March 12th 2014 after the Pub People Company completed a quarter-of-a-million pounds refurbishment programme. With walls knocked-down and the bar rebuilt, previous customers of The Marr lodge found the pub almost unrecognisable!
The pub reopened with the introduction of cask ales, offering a selection of up to four. The Marr Lodge now offers a 15p discount to all CAMRA members who show their membership card at the bar. The discount applies to pints of any ale or traditional cider and is available at all times!
Licensee Billy says “We love the ethos and character of cask ales and traditional ciders. The idea behind cask ale is similar to how we are in the kitchen; good quality, local, handmade and tasty!”
The new menu is supported by a daily carvery which offers a permanent choice of three meats. The rest of the menu gives a selection of traditional pub favourites, homemade burgers plus gluten-free curries and a range of daily specials dreamed up by the chef. The emphasis of the food offering will be very much on being family friendly and great value in the daytimes with a more ‘premium’ menu in the evening.
The pub offers an informal corner of the pub with a single plasma screen showing Sky Sports for the footie fanatics.
