Take a look at new bar that celebrates Rotherham’s history

A pub is set to open in Rotherham, on the site of an old sorting office.

On Market Street, the 1915 Bar and Bistro will open from 3pm on Friday.

The bar, which is on the same site as the Exchange pub that closed after a 2014 stabbing, has had many of its original features restored.

It has taken inspiration from Rotherham’s history and includes works from local artists.
