Visited about 19 times. Beautiful decor. Well-appointed, historical pub in a station. What’s not to like? Don’t go NYE when it shuts about quarter to midnight. Essential starting/finishing stop on any trawl of Sheffield. A few half decent beers on the bar. Never seen it busy except seething with Saturday evening traffic but most of my visits midweek mornings. You’ve got to, but limit yourself to a half and then explore the city.
Visited April 2017, post-Brexit Yorkshire tour of doom. - Unique experience: probably Sheffield’s longest bar with rows of pumps and handles doubled by elegant mirroring and brass shine. Takes a while to order, but several halfpints of modern local bitters and (A)PAs work well for me. Loads of football supporters drinking Bernard lagers. Large rooms, all packed. A few brew kettles and Weyermann malt sacks in the Tapped Brew area in the back to top it all off. Pity I had to leave so soon.
Need to give this place a second chance. For a station pub it is top notch. However I was slightly disappointed. From the outside it looked deserted but was absolutely rammed. Then found that the array of beers that day was’t that interesting. Ended up perched in a corner, feeling extremely hot so downed my pint and headed off for a cold drink.
Ideal location accessible from inside the station with a long front bar and back snug. Good mix of cask and keg with bernard lagers always available. Often beers from thornbridge and the on site brewery. Minimal food available. Lovely wood, brass and glass interior. Can become quite rammed and difficult to get served (especially if trains cancelled/ delayed!)
Accessible at the side of the Station and onto its first platform, this is a multi-roomed pub full off wooden wall panels, traditional furniture and a bar stacked with its own brews and guests in both cask and keg. There’s lots of bottle options too. The bar in the main room at the back faces the platform against its back wall, and despite its decent length it can get ultra busy during the evening peak hours for travelling so it can be awkward to order, especially if you are carrying or pulling a lot of luggage at the same time. Despite this it’s a great place to start or finish any beer trip to the city, or simply to wait for your train.
Nice tap, at the train station, and well worth a stop while waiting for a train. Some of there own beers on the 22 taps as well as a selection of other breweries. plenty of bottle on offer to. Really nice.
Very good place with a nice selection of ales from everywhere in Britain and something from Czech Rep as Matuska or Bernard which is quite unasual in U.K... Good the selection of the bottles from Founders to Marble .. Only a bit disappointing the ages I waited for getting my drink .. But the place was packed ..
Visited on Friday evening, 20/05/16, around 6pm.
Located on platform 1 of the station the Tap is a grand building set in the old station with a number of different rooms culminating in one that houses the brewing kit for the Tap brewery.
The place was busy but not too bad and there were a lot of staff on behind the bar so service was always immediate. I was a little disappointed in the selection on my visit. 4 or 5 taps had no beer on them, only one beer from their own brewery (one that has been around for years and I’d had in London) in all there were just two ticks for me. Pricing also very high for Sheffield ... £4.20 for half an Estonian IPA ! Overall a solid stop and an atmospheric venue ... I think i was just unlucky with the choices on my visit.
