Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cremorne

From the look of the place it was no surprise to find a plaque on the floor confirming that this was once a Tetley's Festival Ale House, but the origin of the unusual name and hot-air balloon illustrated on the pub sign remains obscure (with post-visit research suggesting these were launched from Cremorne Gardens in Chelsea during Victorian times, but any Sheffield connection remains unclear...). Anyway, there was a good selection of six real ales - including Blue Bee Citra Session, Pictish Aurora, First Chop's Ava and the regular Kelham island Bitter - plus Lilley's Crazy Goat cider from seven on the eight handpumps to be found on various parts of the elongated counter. Other than a slight reservation because my beer was served a little on the warm side, this one is worth a visit if in the area.

A surprisingly long bar with a multitude of hand pumps, considering this is quite a small pub. There is a further room at a lower level, which is used for DJ evenings and live music, and there's a courtyard behind. There's a slightly scruffy and relaxed feel about the place, and surprisingly the windows onto the street, where a bus stop is situated, are open to view, with no frosted glass.

On the bar at the time of my recent visit were eight real ales and two ciders. There's an interesting and changeable selection of mostly local ales and although the bar staff do not appear to be particularly knowledgeable about beer, they provide a friendly welcome and the atmosphere is generally pleasant. There's a discount for Camra members, but only until 6pm each day. This is the only pub in this part of town that is worth a visit just for the beer.
