Pub goers are sure to find a tipple to take their fancy and there's regular live music inside to enjoy while you drink, with up and coming live acts from Sheffield and beyond performing in The Bards Bar upstairs.

The pub also hosts beer events and cask beer festivals, with the next lined up for 29 November to 1 December, where attendees have the chance to sample a variety of one-off brews.

And if you get peckish during your visit, The Guardian recommends the cheese and ham sandwich, which will only set you back 80p.

Wash it down with a pint of Redwillow Weightless, which features fruity hints of grapefruit and mango flavours.
