This 1830s backstreet pub was built to quench the thirst of steelmakers who lived and worked nearby, and it’s become a gem of a busy traditional local. The pub is in a conservation and popular walking area, where old buildings have been converted into stylish apartments, and The Kelham Island Museum around the corner tells the story of the city’s industrial heritage.
