I recently went for lunch at the newly refurbished Devonshire Cat. Looks great and they have done a good job in ensuring the place is more current in appearance. Menu had good options from light portions, to main meals, to children's options. I had the steak sandwich, which was great. Steak was cooked well and not chewy like many others... More

My family have visited the Dev Cat many times, and this was the first visit since the refurbishment. The food was as good as ever, not sure about the new layout though, doesn't seem quite as homely, although it is very nice. I didn't think the ladies toilets are as nice as they were before, but that's just a personal... More

First visit since the refurb and we loved it. It feels like a much better venue for a meal but it hadn't lost its fabulous choice of drinks and is still a great place for a drink or two even if you're not eating. The new central bar looks good and there is a mix of tables with benches, smaller... More

We were a party of 6 friends who popped in The Devonshire Cat after a while on Sunday late afternoon and the first surprise was the revamping of the place, it looks amazing. The new squared bar is superb! The staff who served us were very friendly and welcoming, that's a point to add! Good choice of ales (although not... More

Located close to my son's student Halls of Residence this was an ideal place to go for lunch before a long drive home for Christmas. The newly refurbished decor was relaxed but modern and the quality of food was amazing - a great range of options on the menu, and not too long to wait for our food. The service... More

Really disappointed with the quality of the food. I was hoping for much more since the refurb. My friends food had a very obviously positioned woodlouse on it, which shows neither the chef or person on the pass bothered to look at the food. The burgers were poorly seasoned and pretty flavourless and way too small for the cheap BREAD... More

Description
Dating back to 2001 and bought by Abbeydale Brewery back in 2013, we established ourselves as one of the very first beer bars in Sheffield. We've built our reputation on serving quality craft and cask, and have beer running through everything we do, from our food to our Cocktails. We're fiercely proud to be part of the Sheffield community and our menu is sourced locally, as well as being fresh and homemade. A minute off Division Street in the heart of Sheffield, we're firmly part of the Sheffield drinking circuit and have free private hire for large groups. Outside of beer our passion is in Whisky, try one off our 75 strong list, or join us for one of our many private tasting sessions.
