Sheffield pubs and bars have been keen to welcome back customers and many have been revamping their beer gardens and outdoor areas. Here’s a few ideas for you to try out – more unusual names include the Leadmill, bowling alley Lane7 at Plug and the Millowners Arms at Kelham Island Museum.
Venues are mainly taking bookings, so there are details in the captions, and it’s best to check opening hours.
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a digital subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor
