“Huge beer selection conveniently located next train station”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I went here to meet colleagues for a drink and was very impressed with the selection of beers, many of them brewed on-site! Not too expensive and cool environment (literally located on Platform1). I will have to come here more often!

“Great selection of ales”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

The Sheffield Taps must be one of the best main line station pubs I have ever been to. It has an excellent selection of ales both on hand pull and bottled. You can try their own beer and there is a great selection of bottles from around the world.

The only downfall of the pub is the prices, it is very expensive for real ale, it is around £1-1.50 more a pint than you'd pay elsewhere in Sheffield.

The staff are pleasant and it is dog friendly. There is a dog water bowl behind the bar if you ask for it.

The decor of the building is magnificent, it has been restored beautifully. I particularly recommend sitting in the brewing room, particularly if you want to impress a visitor that hasn't been before.

This is definitely a pub where you can come with both friends and family. I believe children are welcome until 8 but I'm unsure how much they would enjoy themselves. It gets busy on a Friday and Saturday night but has a friendly crowd. It is quite on other days so is a good place to be able to talk to each other without straining.

“Real ale paradise”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a must visit for real ale fans. The renovation of the rooms is great, with the back room with visible brewery vats , is a delight!
The choice of beers and lagers is excellent with a wide range of pale ales ,IPA's, golden, bitters and stouts.
Will someone please open a place with this choice in Coventry!
Quality!

“Real ale heaven!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Not the cheapest pub by far but the selection of real ales is amazing! Just be careful as some are up at 9%! Never had food in here. It's great if you've got a while to wait for a train to call in and sink a couple of fantastic ales! Well worth a visit!
