Always liked this pub, but wasn't aware it have gone though a refurbishment. Different now , seemed to have less real ales than before, but still a great place

Went here after a long day in the office and needed something to munch on. Had a variation of the starters and they were surprisingly delicious. Service was good and staff were helpful. Highly recommendable if you are around the area looking for some decent food at a fair price.

The ale at this pub is really good. It is the flagship of the brewery and I have no complaints what-so-ever about the drinks, staff or ambience However, I do take exception to the feeling of being "cheated" by the food. I ordered "Pie of the Day" from the Specials Board which stated "Steak and Ale" at quite a high... More

Despite it being owned by the same folks that run The Fat Cat on the other side of the city, I have heard friends describe The Devonshire Cat as a kind of "hipster Wetherspoons". After a few visits, I can see why. Ales start around the mid-range mark because they go for the more upmarket ones, and the place does... More

I recently visited here with family for the first time since the refurbishment. I can say that we will not be going back again. It is not simply the fact that the redo seems to have been the pretext for a sharp rise in prices (two pints came to more than £12, while a starter of whitebait was the smallest... More

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

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.
