19 of Sheffield's roughest pubs down the years, according to you

Sheffield has many fantastic pubs, but some over the years have earned a reputation for being a bit rough.

We asked our readers which pubs they remember as being the city’s roughest, in days gone by.

These were some of the most popular suggestions, including the Cannon and Magnet pubs.

Of course, what is a ‘rough’ pub to one punter is to another a watering hole full of geunine characters.

As Jacqueline Richardson put it: “The roughest ones were the best ones to go in. Real people with real lives and problems but the best people to have a laugh with. What you see is what you got.”

How many of these pubs did you visit and do you agree that they were among the city’s roughest?
