Jurassica, which is based on Monteney Crescent, Ecclesfield opened for the first time on Thursday, July 1.
Landlady Chantelle Synyer’s animatronic dinosaurs, Tricksy the T-Rex and Blue the Velociraptor, are among the prehistoric creatures that will be present at the pub.
There will also be smaller, puppet “baby” dinosaurs, as well as a Pterodactyl suspended from the ceiling and an animatronic T-Rex’s head mounted on the restaurant’s wall.
Jurassica will offer a ticketed dinosaur-themed dining experience in the prehistoric restaurant, during which customers will get to meet Tricksy and Blue; as well as casual dining in a separate bar area.
Casual dining is all that is on offer until the remaining coronavirus restrictions are lifted, but Chantelle has said diners will get to meet the their “baby dinosaurs” and has hinted there is a chance Tricksy and Blue could make a guest appearance during Jurassica’s opening weekend.
Over its opening weekend, Jurassica will be open from midday until 8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and will be open from midday until 6pm on Sundays, when the pub will also be serving up a Sunday cervery.
