Visited here yesterday. I have been once before, back in 2017, so thought it was time to refresh my memory while I was in the area. At the bar are five hand pulls, at the time of my visit offering Wainwright Altitude (labelled as coming soon), Little Critters Raspberry Blonde, Kelham Island Easy Rider, Rosie's Pig Rhubarb and one pump unclipped. I haven't seen Wainwright Altitude before, but apparently it is a chilled cask ale served at 5° C. I went for the Raspberry Blonde, which had a nice raspberry taste to it. Both Little Critters and Kelham Island are based in Sheffield, so good to see a couple of local ales on.

At the time of my visit, which was around 3:30pm on a Tuesday, the place had a few customers in at the more mature end of the spectrum. One chap seemed almost zombie like as he stared at a TV playing "funny vines" while nursing what was left of his pint of Carling. Other TVs were showing Sky News but muted. Music was playing at a slighter louder volume than you would expect during the daytime but in the sunshine it felt like a British bar abroad.

The bar itself is quite smart, the rest of the place looks like it had a quick paint job during its last refurb. Not unpleasant but not high end - but then you could argue that the décor matches the customers. There is a motorbike in the ceiling recess in front of the bar, complete with fake rider wearing flippers.

All in all, nice enough at the time of my visit though I can imagine it gets a bit lively when it has any sports events showing.

This is still in the sports bar category, but now with a makeover including grey carpet, grey wood panelled walls to hip height and snazzy 1970s wallpaper above. Most importantly, the bar now features five hand pumps with, at the time of my visit, four real ales available. Three were fairly local (Bradfield, Stancill and Geeves) while the other was the ubiquitous Wychwood Hobgoblin. An unusual line up, with a mild from Geeves and a stout from Bradfield, and only Stancill Stainless in the pale and hoppy category. My half of the Rococco chocolate mild was very drinkable and reasonably priced - equivalent to £2.85 for a pint. This is a welcome addition to the Sheffield real ale options, and I'll definitely be back, though I hope the CD of 80s hits has bitten the dust by the time of my next visit. (Don't miss the motorbike suspended from the ceiling above the bar - its rider wearing flippers.)

This pub on the corner of a busy road junction and what locals call hillsborough corner.
This pub has got a daft name and did'nt look that appealing but i thought i would give it a try.
Once inside here there are lots of tv screens showing sports,there was no real ale on here there was keg Stones bitter.
I sat at a tall table and quite enjoyed watching the world go by its just a shame there is no real on here.
