The Cowshed on Ecclesall Road
Cowshed on Eccy Road is set to be transformed into a traditional craft boozer
The Cowshed and Graze Inn on Ecclesall Road has long been a collaboration between Brew Kitchen and Thornbridge Brewery, opening back in 2012. Brew Kitchen look after the food and Thornbridge do what they do best with the beers.
And while that collaboration is set to remain, both venues are about to embark on a dramatic refurb which will see the two venues separated, with Cowshed totally rebranded as The Eagle, a new traditional style pub focusing on craft ales.
Toby, The Eagles new general manager, told VIBE: “The Eagle will mainly focus on Thornbridge craft beers as well as having some guest ales on, and we’ll have a focus on speciality spirits and wines, harking back to a more traditional boozer feel.
“The change will allow us to be able to have more events, more pub quizzes, live music, and a lot more creativity over what we can offer.”

All of the cocktails at the Eagle will be removed, although Graze Inn will continue offering its extensive cocktail menu alongside its all-day-long dining hours.
Nothing structurally is set to change in the new bar, however they do plan to extend the outside area further down the line. On the inside however, the venue will be totally transformed with a full redesign. Toby tell us there’s even plans for a small deli area offering cold cured meats, pickled eggs, chutneys, pork pies and scotch eggs, cheeses and other tasty bites.
“I’m massively excited” says Toby: “There’s always a few butterflies but I can’t wait. It’s gonna be boss, especially when all the plans come together. There's loads of good places to drink on Eccy Road and we just want to add to that.”
The work is set to begin on Tuesday 28 May, with plans for a big bank holiday blow out event before work commences.
