Large pub overlooking a platform. A decent mix of cask and keg beers with an extensive bottle menu. The bottle menu is a little overpriced for some beers. Good service and enough to keep you busy all day. Very good place.
Visited on many occasions. Multi roomed venue on station. Micro brewery in middle room. Nice ambiance. Good restoration job. Great beer selection. Always something interesting on and always in good nick. Worth changing trains in Sheffield for.
It is certainly a handily placed bar, I stepped off the train from Chesterfield straight into it, can’t do better than that. It does have a slightly cold feel to it, feeling a little like an old fashioned Butchers shop with all the white tiling. There is an extensive range of beers, constantly changing, apart from the 3 Tapped beers. The customers are constantly changing too as the trains arrive and depart. A great place to visit, not sure I would spend the afternoon there.
Visited this pub on numerous occasions. Although impressive building I find the beer quality very changeable, namely due to the cellar being very small and the huge demand for beer resulting in young, green beer very often. Bottle range is impressive but very expensive. Many mediocre hand pumped beer too often for me
Nice place and excellent location for visitors. I started and finished my day trip here. Plenty of cask and a few keg too. Large selection of bottles in fridges behind the bar, but didn’t see a bottle list anywhere. Loads of tables in various little rooms. Could be easy to miss your train.
A nice station bar with an exceptional range of beers. The Sheffield Tap isn’t as grand as, say, the York Tap (another excellent station pub) but it’s a nice place - a narrrow room with tiled walls, a green and white vaulted ceiling and arched windows facing onto platform 1b.
