Open-plan pub, renovated and modern. Smelled a bit of bleach, which was a bit off-putting but not the end of the world. Big cask and bottle selection. The cask is very local. Focusing on Abbeydale, Blue Bee and such outfits. Bottle selection tends toward the US/Belgian. A few interesting and well-priced craft keg as well. A place that loves good beer, but is missing the atmosphere and intimacy of the best pubs in the area.

It would appear that this large open=plan and very popular pub is now owned by Abbeydale Brewery which means that their beers are the most prolific although other ales were also on offer - there is a very good overall range. Didnít eat so canít comment on the food but they were serving plenty of it so it must be popular. The pub is in an area where there are several other good ale houses but the DC is always worth a visit.

Big open plan pub, almost weatherspoon like but serves fantastic Jaipur on cask along with other Thornbridge beers, burger was great I had here and reasonably priced. Hazaar.

Lots of pine and comfy furniture it looks like a Wetherspoons. But lots of good foreign beer (though mostly in bottles). A good choice and quality always been good of cask ales. Food seemed rather expensive.

The Devonshire Cat is a large freehouse located in central Sheffield. Inside it has the feel of 1980ís chain pub with garish carpets and rather nosy customers. The beer selection is rather extensive in cask and bottles, but there wasnít anything particularly exciting (I would rather visit a Spoons). The ales we had were in good condition. Stop past if you fancy some Yorkshire ticks, but I would stay long.

Nice student pub in Devonshire Green. Extensive selection of beer on hand pump. Large selection of bottled beer, europe and usa. Reasonable prices for city centre. The food iíve had has been very nice. The main fault I can find is that the place in a modern building and very open, has the feel of a wetherpoons and can get very busy. Still, worth a visit.

Up there with the best bars in the country. Large sprawling pub in a nice area of Sheffield and just off the beaten track far enough to avoid the rabble. Yet usually busy. Largely because it has an unrivalled cask range of beer and a bottle fridge the size of a small off licence! Add to that some exceptional pub food and the only thing missing is a wider keg selection. Otherwise perfect.

You really cannot falter the Devonshire Cat... it has an astounding selection of beers stored in a íbeer boxí with hundreds of bottles to the window, reminiscent of a Belgian shopfront; in large part rare bottled beers from Belgium and further afield(Delirum Tremens! Coopers Austrailain Lager! John Martin Special Export Guinness! St. Bernardus! Gordons Scotch Ale & more!) Frankly I havenít seen a pub with as much selection as the Devonshire! The staff were really accomodating and actually shared our passion for beer, a rarity in the industry these days! This has been one of the best pubs I have ever been to, I hope I will be in Sheffield again to sample itís delights once more!
