“Ale's For Travelers and For You!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Go here for the quality ale's! Decent night scene. I can't say much more, I went in here for one drink, but do go here, or else you will miss out on an old style Sheffield Pub!

“Decent beer in a bland surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Beer is great with a fair selection of local and guest ales on pump. The back room is rather bland and detracts from the atmosphere of the pub.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Excellent range of beers but they kept running out of the ones I liked ha ha! (which meant I had to keep trying more). This is a fantastic little pub that gets so crowded people spill out onto the street once the garden is full too. Found it a bit odd that there was a handwritten notice up saying foul language will not be tolerated. The clientele certainly didn't look or sound like they would need reminding on that score!
A quality establishment indeed!

“Not a restaurant but one of the best real ale pubs in the UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Doesn't matter what time of the day or what day of the week, there's always a friendly welcome here. Because of its fame as the only pub to have won CAMRA's National Pub of the Year award in consecutive years, there's always a good cross-section of people in from locals to tickers travelling in from across the country to taste the wide selection of ales from both local and national microbeweries from across the UK. Definitely a must-visit for the discerning real ale drinker in Sheffield. In fact. the Kelham Island square mile has several of the best eal ale establishments you will find anywhere in the country, in my opinion.
