Yes, little can be added to that below, the number of ales sold passed the 5,000 mark in 2017 so God only knows what number they're up to now! A very attractive and commanding exterior gives way to a wonderfully atmospheric interior. There's a minimum midnight licence, extending to 1.00am on Friday and Saturday and live music every night.
Ales: see below, my half of Blackjack's Dead Man's Hand was excellent and was £1.70 a half, slightly above the average price of our 13-hole crawl.
Obviously this is a destination pub for anyone who likes real ale and heritage pubs with interesting interiors, though it's strange that CAMRA doesn't seem to be quite so enamoured.

Another fine Sheffield Georgian pub originally built in 1821 as a coaching inn. A well worn excellent traditional multi roomed interior that has to be explored in full and then a spacious external courtyard garden area for alfresco drinking when the weather permits.
A very good mixed style ale range on offer as detailed by the reviewer below and I do like a good chocolate porter and in this respect the Wilde Child Gimmie S’more was truly gorgeous.
A pub that a real ale drinker can just blend into with ease, this is indeed an outstanding pub and one of the best beer drinking haunts I visited during my two days in the city.

Outstanding pub both for it's interior and for it's ale selection.The internal layout is traditional ,with a front tap room,a corridor winding around to two snugs,one with a most impressive clock and the corridor ending at a darts board area.So many original features,you must spend time wandering about.
9 handpumps were operational on my crawl visit offering Wild Child Gimme S'More,Firebrand Double IPA,Weird Beard Morning Light,Wild Weather False Sense of Security,Abbeydale Deception,Wild Beer Pogo,Stancil Barnsley Bitter,Anthology New England Session Pale and Blackjack Dead Man's Hand (good nick).That's a more than impressive line up,and next time I will spend a session in here,possibly to upgrade to full marks.
A must visit and for my money the best pub in Kelham Island.
