Step back in time in this traditional Victorian pub with some excellent ales and a friendly Sheffield welcome. Had a lovely Sunday roast here. Great place to stop after the Kelham Island Museum.

When in Sheffield, we often visit the Fat Cat because the beer is always excellent. On this visit we decided to eat. We knew it would be basic pub grub, but thought the burger with potato wedges would 'fill a corner'. It did - like a house brick!. The wedges looked like they had been cooked, frozen then reheated -... More

Finished the night off in this delightful pub. Great atmosphere and plenty of beer. Only down side to this pub is that there is only one toilet for ladies. Hence big queues. Not lady friendly. Other than that a delight!!

A wonderful, atmospheric pub in a really interesting (and fast developing) area of the city. Really enjoyed both the beers and the pork pie I tried (it's the second best I've ever had, but the best place has now shut down!).

Excellent beer and lovely staff who were happy to offer suggestions on which beers to try. This is the best pub we visited on a long weekend to Sheffield. It’s a great pub which ticks all the right boxes.

Tucked away in quiet Kelham Island this is a lovely traditional English pub selling cask conditioned real ale via 12 beer engines with a good range of snacks. I mention the snacks as I could not possibly recommend the food, enough said The beer was varied but didn't not rate their own Kelham Island beer which was by far the... More

Beer - fantastic. Beer garden - really lovely and full of flowers, art work and other curiosities. Food - truly horrible, although very affordable at about £5 per meal! One very nice woman seemed to be running the entire kitchen herself, and was perhaps struggling. Strangely hard and tough potato wedges that left a puddle of oil behind them. Toad... More
