Wortley Men’s Club is a small club, totally independent of all breweries with about 700 members, although probably only about 200 are regular customers. We have a wide selection of Award-winning drinks behind the bar all of which are extremely well kept by Nigel and Teresa, our stewards.
The Club is open to all, you don’t need to be a member to use the club and facilities, but members get benefits such as cheaper bar prices.
Facilities include a recently refurbished snooker table, a darts board, 2 bandits and an outdoor seating area. Each main area has a television showing Terrestrial, Sky, BT and Amazon Prime sporting events.
We hold 2 Members’ free draws each week, at 9:30pm on a Saturday and at 1.00pm on Sunday, a weekly Quiz on a Thursday and various seasonal events throughout the year.
The Club is also home to the now-famous annual beer festival in July, a 3-day extravaganza of live music, childrens’ entertainment and great quality food.
Wortley Men’s Club was formed in 1945 by the Earl of Wharncliffe for local residents as an alternative to the Wortley Arms, which was frequented at that time by American servicemen.
The Earl gave over the Library building on Reading Room Lane, which backs onto the Wortley Arms, to house the club.
