Terrific! Fish Finger Sandwich ('er indoors).....Yorkshire Rarebit (me). Really good. Polite speedy service........plenty of bite in the rarebit.....and home-made chips to die for (ordered separately) too. Diet starts just after hell freezes over..... Highly recommended!

In Sheffield for a family wedding and popped in for a quick drink. Very pleasantly surprised, modern, bright, friendly staff and the Aspalls cider is excellent. Apparently, the men's urinals are interesting-having not been in there I can't confirm 😀.

First time I have visited since the refurb. Not sure I appreciate the change, it is clean and bright and probably a lot easier to get served at the central bar. I have previously come here as it serves food that my picky daughter will eat. The menu has changed and is very much "posh" a lot of blue cheese... More

I have been here a few times in the past and was desperate to show my partner this must-see pub whilst we were in the area. Unfortunately we visited on a busy Friday night so I doubt my partner experienced the full charm this place can offer but never the less the variety of ales were excellent and the atmosphere...

I popped in after work for a bite to eat and it was delicious ! I was served by a guy called sean who was super helpful and friendly. The beer is the real stand out feature of this pub with a brilliant range of craft and real ale ! Highly recommended :)

In the heart of Sheffield we found the perfect place to stay The Wilson Carlile Centre run by the Church Army, a corner shop and the most amazing food at the Devonshire Cat - vast array of real ales too and best of all a stones throw from gigging at the Corporation 😀. All within five minutes walk.

First time here since the revamp and was quiet pleasantly surprised. Food and service was good. Sometimes, when quality is not so good then quantity makes up BUT this had a good balance; food quality was better than expected and quantity was sufficient. Well worthy of a positive post... NB. alos took time out to inform manager. Too little time... More

Fantastic food and service. Sean and Brit were brilliant. I've read some negative reviews on here but we couldn't fault the place. Despite a revamp, the menu offers traditional food that's a bit quirky and delicious. Fantastic value for money too, couldn't fault £35 for two courses & 2 alcoholic drinks for two people at an independent restaurant in Sheffield.... More

Dating back to 2001 and bought by Abbeydale Brewery back in 2013, we established ourselves as one of the very first beer bars in Sheffield. We've built our reputation on serving quality craft and cask, and have beer running through everything we do, from our food to our Cocktails. We're fiercely proud to be part of the Sheffield community and our menu is sourced locally, as well as being fresh and homemade. A minute off Division Street in the heart of Sheffield, we're firmly part of the Sheffield drinking circuit and have free private hire for large groups. Outside of beer our passion is in Whisky, try one off our 75 strong list, or join us for one of our many private tasting sessions.
