Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about New Barrack Tavern

Interesting pub with an Art Deco façade and a Camra regional inventory interior. Didn't manage to explore the various rooms, but the curved counter in the lobby bar is quite impressive, as is the range of real ales and ciders on offer. I went for a quick Bradfield's Barrack Bitter (which I took to be, in effect, a house beer), but I must make an effort to make a proper return visit.

I've been making this part of my usual circuit in recent weeks - having a bus pass makes it a bit easier to get to, though it's also not a bad walk from my place via Blake Hotel, Queens Ground, New Barrack, then Gardeners Rest and/or Wellington. They always have a dark beer on these days, and told me that they do better for stouts, porters and milds than a lot of pubs this side of town. I've had a couple of Ashover beers - their Damson Porter is so much more subtle than the frequently seen Titanic Plum Porter, which is too sweet for me - and on another occasion when table service was still in operation Steph predicted to Kev behind the bar what I would be ordering: Rudgate Ruby Mild. Friendly staff and excellent beer.

One of the first pubs I frequented when I first moved to Sheffield, as I worked nearby and lived not much further away in those days. Latterly I only call in once or twice a year on average, but still have a soft spot for the place. The beer range was a little limited I felt on my recent visit, with four from Castle Rock, three from Bradfield and just one from Roosters for variety. (There are also three ciders on hand pump, though I think there are others available and listed behind the bar.) It was quiet in the main part of the pub once everyone had been served, as most had disappeared to the comedy gig that was taking place in the back - this is once a month, apparently. There's also live music most weeks, and it gets pretty busy here on those Saturdays (or Wednesdays?) when the Owls are at home. I was interested in a display of old photos of the pub, showing what it was like before being rebuilt in 1930.
