Although there is real ale available, it's provided on a solitary hand pump installed as an afterthought at the end of the bar. Most of the beer is keg, and very expensive keg at that. We perused the blackboard for a minute, but couldn't summon up any enthusiasm for cold, fizzy beer at well over £4 a pint - in one case even £4.60 for two-thirds! The real ale was Abbeydale Moonshine; I didn't enquire the price.

Called in late last year and they had no real ale. However according to Beer Matters February 2015 they now have 2 handpumps one of which will be serving Exit 33 (ex Sky's Edge) brewery beers. I'll give it another go next time we're in Sheffield.

A recent opening in the West One Plaza, combining craft beer and East Coast cooking. I'll try anything once, but as I wasn't planning on eating, that just left the beer. Their definition of craft beer (and there are many) doesn't extend to real ale, so I scanned the slightly confusing list of keg and bottled beers, priced variously in pints, halves, thirds and two-thirds, in hope of finding one I might enjoy. I settled for the Portland Stout, but this proved to be a cold, bland approximation of Guinness, with similar strength but even less taste.

The new owners have done their best to make the interior of this rather bland modern building into something with a bit of style and character, though having never been in an East Coast kitchen I can't say how close they might have come to their model. An article in the local paper when this place opened said that it "will specialise in 'Jewish deli-type' food, with a tank of live lobsters as the focal point". Whether this will take off in Sheffield remains to be seen.
