Steve of N21 left this review about The Ship Inn

In the mottled sunshine of a Saturday lunchtime this really is a good looking pub and the superb Tomlinsons Anchor Ales tiled exterior almost glints in the sunlight. The transformation internally to something more resembling a student bar has been well documented below and I won’t repeat any of that except to concur that the striking blue curtains do actually add to the overall effect.
Six ales were on for my visit and alongside TT Landlord there were Best Bitter and Session IPA from the Henry Smith Brewery, Sheffield Brewery New Dawn, Revolutions Brewing Co. Swoon and Abbeydale Absolution.
It was quite quiet for my visit except for a steady flow of groups of guys I assumed were also on the start of the Kelham Island crawl, (something substantiated later when I kept bumping into them in other pubs ) who seemed to favour the secluded section at the far end of the bar so I took my half of New Dawn to one of the studded banquettes in the deserted main section and started reading the information mag for the forthcoming Sheffield Fringe that I found on one of the tables. This was actually such a good read that I decided to delay my departure for another half , this time of the Chocolate fudge milk stout from Revolutions which was a lovely stout.
And I am not sure if the young barmaid was the same one as mentioned by Will below but she was really friendly and efficient to such a level to be an absolute credit to her profession.

Seemingly now under different ownership or management from my previous review, and the policy now includes curtains, or blinds, so the place looks a little less stark than previously. There are eight hand pumps on the bar, but only four beers at the time of my Tuesday night visit. There are more real ales on at weekends. The young woman who served me was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was congenial, if a little loud at times - but after the noisy group of students had left it reverted to being pleasant. My half of Henry Smith Best Bitter was in good condition - this is a new brewery for me and on a subsequent visit I also had their Dark Mild; both were easy drinking and well presented. Worth a look in if doing the Kelham Island pubs, though expect this one to vary between busy and loud, and the opposite, depending on the time of day or week.

A striking exterior with fine well preserved tiling including a frieze of a ship over the door and the former Tomlinson's Brewery name running along the front, a rear whitewashed piece at the back may be an extension albeit from some time ago. Inside there is a L-shaped space with the bar in the crook, the front area has rugs on the floor, different coloured wooden slats cladding the chimney breast, button backed banquettes, small bottles containing daffodils on the tables and a small low table fashioned from a small wheeled trailer. A DJ mixing desk suggests the pub gets livelier in the evenings.
The other side has a walk through "door" all painted in almost electric blue, looks like an old chimney/fireplace, this leads to a rather secluded bit of seating at the far end where there is a horseshoe banquette around a single table. Window blinds were similarly coloured. The toilets are through here too, of note on the way is an upright clock (Grandmother?) with a Ward's Brewery face. Past evidence of this brewery were to feature throughout our Sheffield visit, they must have held a huge number of pubs.
Beers were Kelham Island Pale Rider and Kelham Best, Bank's Sunbeam, Bradfield Farmer's Stout, Landlord, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Moonstone Pale Ale reversed and one not clipped.
Easily visible from the tram stop across the busy roundabout, a good start to a Kelham Island crawl.
