Great old-fashioned mutli-room corner pub located in the North of central Sheffield. It’s a traditional establishment with the focus on local ales at great prices. The beer styles on offer were fairly restrained (bitter, golden & mild etc) but well kept and rather quaffable. Great to see a big stack of pork-pies at the bar as well! Friendly atmosphere and good service. Didn’t eat there, but the food look very good value indeed. A great boozer.
Visited April 2017, post-Brexit Yorkshire tour. Fun traditional parlour boozer to start off a Sheffield pub crawl and enjoy a few traditional cask ales in cushioned seats (nice standard bottle selection of Belgians to keep the brother-in-law happy when EU-nifyingly sharing rounds). Kelham Island ales were fresh and crisp. I like the central tap dispensing booth, gives it both a train station and church-like feel...
Have been going here for years and not much has changed (apart from the toilets a few years back!). As you’d expect heavy on Kelham island beers but also plenty of guest beers. It’s firmly in the traditional ales category. My last couple of visits the choice has been a bit uninspiring. Would have scored this place about 20 points higher a few years back but there’s lots of better places in Sheffield nowadays.
Yet another excellent pub in Kelham Island. Two rooms, I opted for the quieter lounge as I couldn’t get a seat in the public. About eight real ales, plus some standard Belgian bottles. The beer concentrates on Kelham Island but there are some brilliant guests from the likes of Fallen and Blue Monkey. The (very) nearby Kelham Island Museum is recommended.
Visited on Friday 18th December in the evening. Place was busy but managed to get a seat. A couple of rooms in the place plus a large garden. The bar area is tiny which meant service a bit of a shambles with clean glasses being piled up in serving hatch by the door. Beer range is excellent with 3 from Kelham Island plus a varied range of guests. Well kept. Prices good. Be nicer if it was quieter but a good pub.
A cosy and welcoming traditional pub with two small rooms, only one of which has a bar. There’s a great mural showing a bookcase with a fat cat grooming itself on the top shelf. There are more paintings of cats in the garden too. There are twelve hand pumps and the beers we had were in good condition. We didn’t eat there but the food smelled good and wasn’t expensive.

Visited several times, latest february 2015 with beery friends. Very local pub, a bit old and deco worn a bit out. The beers was served in good condition, and a ok selection as wll. Large beergarden in the back. Lots of cat related deco, and a painting that reminded me very much of my old cat :-) For sure worth a try, very close to other pubs in the area.
