Grade II-listed Carbrook Hall to be turned into a Starbucks
One of Sheffield’s historic buildings could be turned into a Starbucks.
Carbrook Hall in Attercliffe was initially owned by the Blunt family in 1176 until the Lord of Ecclesall, Tom Bright, acquired it in the late 16th century just after it was re-built. A descendent of the family, John Bright, allowed the property to be used for parliamentary forces when Sheffield Castle was under seige in 1644
In 1855, the hall was used as a public house and despite having numerous owners since, remained a popular boozer until it closed permanently in 2017.
New proposals, submitted by DLP Planning on behalf of the owner West Street Leisure, have been submitted to the council. The historic parts of the building will be retained and restored. A report on the proposals stated: “The plans will not significantly harm the significance of the building and would provide a viable use for the building of public benefit.”
A drive-through Starbucks is planned for the bottom floor, with the first floor of the building to be used as a training room.
