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

Mostly a café bar for the eponymous cinema in the converted car sales building, but also open to all. Light modern bar with full-height windows on one side. On my visit, most other customers were finishing a leisurely Sunday brunch, so there was a very relaxed atmosphere. Unusually for such a place, real ale is served from one or more of the three handpumps, with Abbeydale's Moonshine (£3.90) available on this occasion.

Will Larter left this review about The Showroom Bar and Cafe

The Showroom, as the name implies, is a cinema, and this is the bar and café where cinema-goers can have a pre- or post-film drink or meal. A friend's experience with trying to get some food before the film started suggests that post-film is probably better. People who like cafés will probably enjoy this place more than people who like pubs. The seating consists of café-type chairs set at café -type tables, though there are a few sofas as well. 

On the bar are three hand pumps, two with local ales (on my recent visit these were Thornbridge Sequoia and Blue Bee Nectar Pale) and the third with Westons cider. The fonts had eight foreign lagers, including Leffe, Hoegaarden, a weissbier and a kriek. The décor consists of garishly painted air conditioning ducts. The beer was fine, in fact better than the two Marble beers that I'd just had at the Sheffield Tap across the way, but a little pricey at £3.30 a pint even compared to the Tap. We moved on next to the Howard where we paid £2.20 - a proper pub.
