OK, this is a Wetherspoons, and you can expect a range of affordable food (looked alright, didn't eat any) and enjoyable range of drinks for a group night out. Apart from the airy and distinctive ex-swimming-pool interior, there is an extensive beer garden ... very nice on a summer evening. It's a good pub to visit in a wheelchair as there's a tram stop right outside (or you could park fairly easily around 300 metres away). And there is level access into the pub, which is easy to get around. But the beer garden is on 3 levels and to get to the main bit you need to use a lift. Fair enough, but the lift is kept locked. It took some time to find the key, and a staff member said it couldn't be found earlier in the day when someone else wanted to use the lift! I totally can't accept the excuse that "kids might play with the lift" as "kids" surely need to be supervised for so many reasons in a beer garden, e.g. the glasses. A lift that is locked is not accessible... So please, 'Spoons, keep it unlocked!

Called in on Saturday evening for a drink, even though it wasn't that busy we still had to wait for 20 minutes to get served, the staff seemed to concentrate on one area of the bar as people were walking in and getting served before us, we wasn't the only ones complaining

It’s not the most modern of pub and the food/service isn’t great, but if you judge it on what it actually is which is a cheap pub, which is great for sport and has the best beer garden in Sheffield (in my opinion) there is no where better!

Not happy at all with our visit to Wetherspoons on Friday. We frequently go to Rawson for food and last few times the standards have slipped so we’ve not been enjoying it whatsoever. The food was shocking!! the ‘Empire State burger’ was tiny as compared to other times we have eat there, not good for a Friday evening meal when we were all starving.. not only was it nothing at all like the description on the menu, it was served cold, burnt and uneatable . Don’t think we will bother going again. Disappointing and a massive let down.
