Built in 1832, it was known as The Alma Hotel for many years, then in 1981 it was the first Sheffield pub to introduce guest beers. The policy continues, with constantly changing, mainly microbrewery, guests from across the country, two hand-pumped ciders, unusual bottled beers, Belgian pure fruit juices and British country wines. The pub’s own Kelham Island Brewery accounts for at least four of the 11 traditional draught real ales. The smart interior is very much that of a traditional, welcoming back-street pub, with real fires making it feel very cosy, while outside is an attractive walled garden with Victorian-style lanterns and bench seating. Events include the Monday quiz and curry night and an annual beer festival.
