Well that’s it folks, winter is most certainly on it’s way! Whilst we’re busily rustling up some seasonal brews to help get you through the colder months, here’s our pick of where to drink them in five great places around Sheffield to stay snug throughout Autumn and Winter…
Our very own pub, the Rising Sun, is the perfect venue for a delicious Sunday dinner or following a brisk and breezy walk out in the countryside. A real community pub, a warm welcome is guaranteed all year round, but in the colder months there’s also a roaring fire to warm your cockles around! 12 real ales are on offer, which always includes a great variety of our cask regulars and specials alike, plus lagers, ciders, keg beer and a carefully curated range of wines and spirits. Food is available all day, and the new seasonal menu focuses on hearty pub classics with a modern twist.
A little gem of a micropub located in popular student area Broomhill. Landlord Ted and his team of lovely staff really know their stuff when it comes to beer, and this place prides itself on offering an ever-changing selection of keg and cask beer (very often including our seasonal specials!) as well as a cracking range of gins. As an aside, there’s also an excellent pork scratching selection (we recommend the Pig of Doom)!

Run by our friends over at Kelham Island Brewery and widely regarded as one of the pioneers of Sheffield’s beer scene. Another pub with a proper fire, the snug side room is truly cosy and there’s always a lively atmosphere. We can recommend the Monday night quiz and curry too!
Three Stags Heads
Ok, so not strictly in Sheffield this one, but worth the drive out into the stunning Derbyshire countryside. The Stags was our very first customer back in 1996, and still showcases four of our ales, including their very own house brew Black Lurcher, a wonderfully warming, deep and roasty 7.0% stout. A totally unspoilt seventeenth century inn that’s packed full of traditional charm… just make sure your mobile phone stays firmly in your pocket!
For their second year in Sheffield, Thor’s Tipi Bar will be open in the Peace Gardens from the 22nd November until NYE, bringing Viking inspired Christmas cheer (and plenty of beer) to the city centre. There’ll be a fire pit, fairy lights and furs (faux, of course!), with mulled wine and a hot chocolate station to provide that quintessential festive feeling! Large parties can book in advance now via Thor’s website.
