Luckily Sheffield has many welcoming venues that provide the perfect retreat to keep the autumn chill at bay – often these places have real open fires too for added atmosphere and warmth.
Here are 10 of the best snug pubs the city has to offer. Locations listed should be contacted directly for details of opening times, booking systems and social distancing measures.
