Walkabout Sheffield, on Carver Street, is a popular spot for students and sports fans alike, welcoming thousands of customers every week.

The bar became an Internet sensation last summer when videos of fans celebrating England’s World Cup heroics went viral.

But now the bar is set to be transformed with renovation works due to start next week.
