Good selection of home cooked food, they seem to cater well for vegetarian and vegans as well. Smells coming from the kitchen are very inviting when you are sat outside!! Does get very... More

After visiting this pub on our very first night in Sheffield upon moving there in September I have not been back once, which is certainly something I greatly regret! It is quite a way out of the city centre, especially when walking from the other end, and whilst I do not think it is quite as good as its neighbour,... More

I would have given this place four stars but my wife insisted three and I suppose that this kind of place has a fairly niche appeal. It reminded me of the pubs I saw in my youth with frosted windows preventing you from seeing in and a bar that was very much a male domain. Not much has changed in... More

Small, busy, noisy, fabulous. The beer here is always fantastic, the only problem is it is a little to easy to drink! My favourite is the Pale Rider, but the Tim Taylor Landlord is also very good.

The beers and great and very reasonably priced, great beer garden, cool setting...but by far the best thing about this place is the staff ! Forget the lads name (tall with ginger hair) but he was extremely accommodating and helpful to our large party, bang on customer... More

This is one of my favourite pubs in Sheffield, down at the Kelham island brewery so not too far from city centre. I am sure that everyone will agree that this place is an institution and should be preserved for all time. The selection of real ale, craft beer, larger, wine and spirits is excellent, such a choice, always a... More

Called in here after visiting the museum on Kelham Island. What a great 'real' pub with really good, well kept selection of real ales. We just wanted a quick snack and the lady suggested cheese or ham baguettes which were not on the menu. Served quickly and very good, fresh side salad, fresh baguettes with enough cheese. Lovely atmosphere with... More
