Boys Weekend in Sheffield - Need Hotel & Pub recommendations

Hi Everyone,

I'm going to Sheffield in Otober with some friends to watch the Watford game at Hillsborough and enjoy a few beers. We will be travelling up on the train on Friday and staying until Sunday so was just wondering if anyone would share their experiences or recommend any decent pubs/clubs areas to go and have a drink on Friday and Saturday night and also receommend a decent hotel - preferably close to the station and the city centre.

Much apppreciated.

Cheers,

JIm.

Jim - Pre and post match you could go to the New Barrack Tavern on Penistone Road (castlerockbrewery.co.uk/pubs/…). Nearest tram stop is Bamforth Street on Yellow and Blue routes (to Middlewood and Malin Bridge respectively). Well behaved away fans are always welcome at the NBT (appart from when playing our city neighbourghs or L**ds), and those wearing colours are not discriminated against. It's a 20 minute walk to the Leppings Lane end of the ground. It's also 5 mins walk to the dogs.

If you're looking for a concentration of decent real ale pubs then I would also recommend the Kelham Island area (sheffieldinsider.co.uk/sheffield-pubs-and-ba…). It's an old industrial part of town with lots of character and has had a reputation for providing a friendly pub crawl for years. It's 5 mins walk from the Shalesmoor tram stop, again on the yellow and blue routes.

As others metion West Street/Division Street are centre of nightlight in town for pubs and bars (including late ones), but the nightclubs tend to be distributed more widely across the city centre. Be aware that West Street in particular is extremely "lively" and is frenquented by hen/stag parties......if you are going to get any trouble it may be there.

Might bump in to you in the NBT on match day!
