Gill Smith left this review about The Hillsborough Hotel

Top place for the real ale trail as not only do they serve from the handpulls on the front of the bar, if you see a beer you want from the pumpclips on the back they will bring it up from the cellar for you, even if drinking in halves. Good choice of their own Crown ales available as well as a variety of guest beers, and good quality reasonably priced food available too. Deserves its 2011 entry in the Good Beer Guide. On this occasion we enjoyed Crown Dizzy Gillespie, Crown Brooklyn Heights and North Yorkshire Bullseye Black. Superb.

Quinno _ left this review about The Hillsborough Hotel

Home of the Crown Brewery (based in the cellar) and their brews are available here in great condition at prices that would barely trouble your wallet if you are from the south of Birmingham; usually five or six of theirs plus a couple of well-chosen guests as well as some decent bottled beers. The main bar and two rooms as you enter can be fairly glum and a bit dull on the décor side. Better seating is to be had at the rear, where a conservatory affords some nice views of the Don Valley (the boarded-up Mecca bingo hall excepted) and there’s a balcony for sunny days. Mrs Quinno was rather taken by her pint of monkey nuts. This is also a functioning hotel, so is a great choice for a stop-over if you're doing Sheffield. I hear that you can have beer with your breakfast!

A couple of minutes from the tram stop makes this one another destination on the ever-burgeoning ale circuit in Sheffield. With a little more ‘pubbiness’ it’d be right up there with the nearby(ish!) New Barrack Tavern.

ROB Camra left this review about The Hillsborough Hotel

Fine pub that is exactly as described by OB except that they have a patio area around the conservatory. We sat on the patio bit in the blazing sunshine last Saturday afternoon as part of our "Valley Of Beer" crawl. I had a pint of their own Hillsborough Pale Ale and Ms Camra had a Timmermans Kriek. I could have sat here for some time but we had to continue on our way to the Wellington. We'll definitely be back.

Old Boots left this review about The Hillsborough Hotel

Brick built corner pub and hotel located very close to the Langsett/ Primrose View stop on the Middlewood/Malin Bridge supertram route going north from the city centre. The pub part comprises two long rooms with a conservatory at the back. Crossing the threshold with “Gilmours” picked out in mosaic, the small bar counter is located to the right and the two rooms are furnished with modern pine tables and slightly uncomfortable high back chairs, designed for dining rather than drinking. Both rooms have similar décor cream and yellow one side and cream and green the other, there is a rack of newspapers in the bar room. So far, so ordinary but the ales, some brewed here (Crown) and others from small northern breweries, are superbly kept and served by staff who provide excellent customer service, you know your custom is valued here. There are eight handpumps, four with Crown beers, and a discreetly placed collection of keg taps for more unusual European beers, I noticed Tindermans and Leffe. Fairly busy on a wet Friday lunchtime with a mix of dining families and dedicated beer drinkers. A GBG regular with good reason.

train man left this review about The Hillsborough Hotel

Beers from the Crown Brewery (located downstairs) were Hillsborough Pale Ale & Traditional Bitter (both £2), & Stannington Stout, also Spire Sgt Pepper Stout (5.5%abv, laced with black pepper), Empire Brewing Commerci-Ale Traveller (clip has pic of Mini-Traveller), Ossett Yorkshire Glory, Abbeydale Absolution, Great Newsome Frothingham Best, plus, ‘coming next' (but available direct from the cellar NOW), Hop Ripper IPA, Ossett Light Ale, Great Newsome Jem's Stout, Bridestones Pennine Gold, Abbeydale Belfry. The small bar to right of entrance suggests it used to be the hotel reception and the office behind is now the kitchen. Wood floor continues to lounge area on the left, where mixed seating is reminiscent of a budget hotel but the warm welcome & beer line-up puts this in a different league. Beyond the bar & lounge area is a nice conservatory with bleached pine tables & a couple of Raj style rattan chairs, as well as smaller tables & stools, there is a cobbled balcony surround with picnic sets, and a board listing belgian style bottles. Mon: pie chips peas & pint £5; Wed: curry rice & pint £5; pie of day wi chips & mushy peas £4.95; chunky chips wi cheese £2.50. Tues is big Jim's quiz night, 8pint prize. Six en-suite rooms, 3dbls, 3twins, £60 b&b, or £40 single. I'll be booking in advance when I get the chance to tour Sheff properly, and it's right by Langsett tram stop. You can see the former name ‘Wellington' in stone over the door, and this and the Wellington down the hill (Henry St) were, or are, known as the Top Wellie & Bottom Wellie. Great stuff.
