The trio joined an informal get together following a constituency party fundraiser held in the pub and a nearby meeting where Labour party matters were discussed.

Sheffield Central MP, Paul Blomfield, said, “The New Barrack Tavern is a fantastic local pub at the heart of its community. The local Labour Party always has an annual social event here because it’s a great pub for everyone. I was very pleased that Ed Miliband, a local Yorkshire MP, was able to visit and enjoy a pint with us”.
