List of pubs in Sheffield


List of pubs in Sheffield

This is a list of a selection of pubs in the city of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England. Only a selection of pubs are listed, organised by district and postcode (in brackets). The oldest of Sheffield's pubs date back to the 18th century, although a few, notably "The Kings Head" in Attercliffe, operate from buildings that are considerably older.

Pubs in central Sheffield (S1)

*The "The Old Queen's Head", opened in the mid-19th century, is run from one of the oldest Grade II* listed buildings in Sheffield, dating from around 1475.
*The "Museum" is built on the site of the mortuary of the Sheffield Hospitals, with its vaulted ceilings still existing in the beer cellar today. The pub has gone through many name changes since its opening in 1897, when it first opened as "The Museum". As the Orchard Square development was built around it, the pub changed its name to "The Orchard", "The Brewing Trough" and "The Hogshead", finally reverting to its original name in February 2005.
*The "Brown Bear" is one of the oldest pubs in the city centre. It is housed in a Grade II listed building that dates from the late 18th century—predating most of the buildings in the surrounding area (which include the Town Hall). The pub features walls covered with theatre posters from the near-by Crucible Theatre and Lyceum Theatre and is one of four Sheffield Samuel Smith houses.
*The "Adelphi Hotel" was a pub in central Sheffield on the corner of Arundel Street and Sycamore Street, where the Crucible Theatre now stands. It is there that the Sheffield Wednesday Cricket Club wa founded on Wednesday 4 September 1867 as well as the Yorkshire Cricket Club on 8 January 1863.
*The "Frog and Parrot" includes Sheffield's oldest brewery, in which the record-breaking Roger and Out beer was once brewed.
*The "Yorkshire Grey", closed since 26 January 2006, first opened in 1833 as "The Minerva". It was one of the four pubs on Charles St, where only one, "The Roebuck Tavern", now remains. The pub was closed to provide Sheffield City Council's town hall a car park for its employees.
*The "Grapes", Trippet Lane, is a small pub known as a live music venue. In the 1960s, it was at the centre of the city's free improvisation scene.
*The "Washington", Fitzwilliam Street, is a traditional two-roomed pub on Fitzwilliam Street. The pub was until recently co-owned by ex-Pulp drummer Nick Banks.

Pubs in Highfield, Lowfield and Heeley (S2 and S8)

*The "Sheaf House Hotel", Bramall Lane opened in 1816. The Sheaf House sports ground, which used to be behind the pub, predates the Bramall Lane ground and was used by both Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Sheffield Wednesday F.C.
*The "Old Crown", London Road is a former Tetley House which retains some original features, including the original Gilmour's ceramic tiles and attractive window arches.
*The "Cremorne", London Road, is an early nineteenth century pub. As a former coaching house, the pub features a gated archway to the side and more buildings to the rear. It is 300 metres from Bramall Lane
*The "Barrel Inn", London Road, is one of three pubs in Sheffield to share this name. This one was built in 1882 and is a former Ward's pub, still bearing the Ward's flags.
*The "Bridge Inn", London Road South, opened in 1856. It faces the former site of Heeley railway station.
*The "Earl of Arundel & Surrey", Queens Road, (now "The Earl") was built in 1880 on the land of the Duke of Norfolk, Earl of Arundel and Surrey. The building used to house the Ward's dray horses—pictures of the horses are painted on the outside of what was the stables. It is a Grade II listed building, and a poundhouse—required by law to take in stray animals. The pub had an ill-fated period named "Monica's" in 2003 before becoming "The Earl".
*The "Sheaf View Inn", Gleadless Road, opened as a pub in 1879, but only had a license to sell beer and cider until 1978 due to the commodities being outside at the back of the yard. The building was refurbished in 2000 and opened on 24 May 2000 as a real-ale pub and is run by New Barrack Tavern.
*The "White Lion", London Road, operates from a Grade II listed building dating from circa 1800.

Pubs in Abbeydale and Millhouses (S7)

*"The Robin Hood" dates from at least the early 19th century.
*"The Waggon and Horses" is housed in a pre-19th century farmhouse of unknown age. A tea room was built alongside in the 1920s and the farm outbuildings converted into a garage. The tea room has since been integrated into the pub and the outbuildings demolished.

Pubs in Woodseats and Norton (S8)

*"The Woodseats Palace", Chesterfield Road, was formerly a cinema, opened in 1911. It was then used as supermarkets (Fine Fare, Kwik Save, Alldays) and is now a Wetherspoons Free House.
*"The Chantrey Arms", Chesterfield Road, named after sculptor Francis Chantrey who was born nearby in Norton.
*"The Woodseats Hotel", Chesterfield Road, made the National news when Firkin Brewery changed its name to the "Floozey and Firkin".
*"The Big Tree", Chesterfield Road, was once called "Masons Arms" but has been named "The Big Tree" since 1936, with the exception of a short period in the 1980s under the "Brewburgers" monikor. The large tree that the pub was named after died after becoming diseased.
*"The Abbey", Chesterfield Road, features a trapezoidal bowling green and is one of the last pubs in Sheffield to retain its bowling facilities.
*"The Cross Scythes", Derbyshire Lane, Once had a collection of rare animals in an area behind the building which was promoted as a zoo.

Pubs in Attercliffe (S9)


*"The Kings Head" is in a building that was the home of Benjamin Huntsman.
*"Carbrook Hall", Attercliffe Common, is in a Grade II* listed building that dates from circa 1620. It claims to be "Sheffield's most haunted public house."


=Pubs in Handsworth (S9 & S13)=

*"The Cross Keys" (400, Handsworth Rd.) is the only pub in the UK built on holy ground (that of the neighbouring St. Mary's Church). It is a very old building, but it has not always been a public house. The original structure was built in the mid-13th century though extensive re-building and modifications have occurred over its history. Initially it was used as a Church House for the chaplains and lay clerks attached to St. Mary's Church. Later it was further modified and became a school, and finally, in 1804 it was granted an ale license and became a public house.
*"The Turf Tavern" (336 Handsworth Rd.) was originally attached to the old village smithy (demolished in 1926 during the construction of Laverack St.). Records show that it was already registered as a beerhouse in 1833.

Pubs in Crosspool (S10)

*"The Bell Hagg" (3 Manchester Rd.) was originally built as a folly ("Hodgson's Folly") in 1832. It is a 5-storey structure built into the steep hillside of the Rivelin Valley.
*"The Crosspool Tavern" (469 Manchester Rd.). The first Crosspool Tavern had originally been Mr. Joseph Sarson's cottage and workshop. He died shortly after its conversion to a tavern in 1824. The property remained in the family for over 100 year's, and Joseph's widow ran the premises until the mid 1870s. It became a meeting place for the district and had its own skittle alley. The tavern was totally rebuilt in 1930 and the last member of the Sarson family to run it retired in 1935, having held the license for 40 years.

*"The Plough Inn" (288 Sandygate Rd.) was originally constructed in 1695 but the current structure resulted from rebuilding in 1927. It became the base for the Hallam Cricket Club.

Pubs in Dore, Totley and Bradway (S17)

*The "Cross Sythes", Baslow Road, once called "Ye Olde Cross Stythes", is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Totley, around 300 hundred years old. It was probably named after the landlord's secondary profession. The pub is exactly six miles away from Sheffield and Baslow and was often referred to as Halfway House and is an extension of an old barn facing the old village green.
*The "Crown Inn", Hillfoot Road, Totley. The Crown is the oldest pub in Totley and was converted to a beer house in 1727 when the main road from Sheffield to London ran past outside the establishment. The first reference to the Crown Inn is in 1813 when a Dorothy Dalton ran the pub. She is said to have taken over when her husband, George, a firebrick maker, died in the 1830s. Her eldest son, Thomas took over. In the mid-19th century a new turnpike, Baslow Road, was built which left the Crown out of the area of patronage. The pub benefited shortly afterwards from trade provided by the men building the Totley Tunnel. In between opening times landlords generally had to supplement their income by working as scythe makers or farmers.
*The "Fleur de Lys", Totley Hall Lane, is large mock halt-timbered building built in 1933. The new pub replaces the now roofless old pub. Two houses next to the pub were demolished in the 1980s to make place for the new residential estate and pub car park. The old pub was situated near the village where the village's stocks were, hence the former name of Totley Hall Lane, Stocks Green. The name of the pub derives from the iris of the coat of arms of the Barker family, living in Totley Hall.
*The "Cricket Inn", Penny Lane, Totley Bents, was originally a farmhouse. It was opened as a pub during the construction of the nearby Totley Tunnel. Cricket matches take place on a cricket ground at the rear.
*The "Devonshire Arms", High Street, was built in the 18th century. It stands on the site of a public water trough. It has been the meeting place of many local societies and was extended following the demand made by the Dore Village Society. The society suggested the brewery opened the rear of the Devonshire Arms as a heritage centre. The brewery, liking the idea, renovated the derelict building and used it as an extension to the pub.
*The "Hare & Hounds", Church Street, is an old limestone public house in the village in Dore. The pub is divided into several rooms due to later extensions. The building was neighboured by Sam Thorpe's grocery, corn and provision dealer to the East until the store was destroyed to make place for new shops and the pub's car park.
*The "Dore Moor Inn" on Hathersage Road, was originally the Devonshire Arms. It is in the Devonshire Arms that the Dore Old School board of trustees hired Richard Furness as master in 1821. The establishment was renamed the Dore Moor Inn between then and 1906 [http://www.hedgerow.co.uk/images.php?class=nostalgic&cat=spc&pictureRef=spc057] . Similarly to the Peacock on Owler Bar, the Dore Moor Inn was a popular Sunday outing venue from Sheffield by 1850s.
*The "Old Mother Redcap" is one of only four Samuel Smith Brewery owned pubs in Sheffield. The others being "The Red Fox", Stocksbridge; "The Brown Bear", City Centre and "The Cow and Calf", Grenoside
