Update – Stone & Taps pub – was Swim Inn
I am converting my pub walks that I do into a pdf downloadable file so you can do the same walk if you wish. If you look at the menu`s at the top you will see them or click on the orange link.
Pub Walk No 1 –(Near Weston Park to Train station) this is starting from University Arms to Old Queens Head near the train station, a evening walk if you are doing halves, its not achievable if you are doing pints.
Pub Walk No 2 – (Sheffield Tap round walk) – this one is starting from Sheffield Tap which is next to the train station and is a round walk of 10 pubs, this walk is best suited for those coming from via train and want to end up back there.
Pub Walk No 3- a walk round the 6 pubs at Broomhill, with a new edition of The Itchy Pig a micro pub and The Bloomery which has had a name change (was The place) and also a refurb.
Pub Walk No 4 – (Kelham Island area) – a long walk from harlequin right through Kelham Island pubs and heading down to New Barrack Tavern, the later pubs are on the tram route to take you back into town.
Pub Walk No 5 – Sheffield Tap to White Lion – to coincide with 2017 Monthly Specials which is all about the White Lion pub I decided to do a walk, this is a day walk.
Pub Walk No 6 – Eccy Road – This walk starts from Champs and goes all the way up Eccy Road to Hunters Bar and then round the back of Eccy Road to Stags Head passing 2 more pubs, you could then walk down Sharrow Lane and continue along London Road.
Pub Walk No 7 – walk round town and then down to Kelham island area – this is a long walk taking in 14 pubs, I did this one on a weekend and best doing halves to get round them all.
Pub Walk No 8 – Crookes to Broomhill – this is one of my favourite walks, you can do this in a evening as I have done recently, catch the 52 bus to Crookes and start in Punchbowl and walk down to Broomhill where there are 6 more pubs and then finish off at University Arms
Pub Walk No 9 – Town Centre – This is a walk round the town centre taking in some pubs you probably havent been in or dont think they have ales or expect much, it is a nice walk and can be done in a evening.

I am going to turn my pub walks into downloadable pdf files onto your mobile phones. The first one is below:
Pub Walk No 1 -(Near Weston Park to Train station) this is starting from University Arms to Old Queens Head near the train station, a evening walk if you are doing halves, its not achievable if you are doing pints.
You can download the walk now as a pdf file which is Sheffield Ale Pubs walk1. Also if you click on the pub names once downloaded onto your phone it will take you to their webpage on my website.
Everyday in June I shall be mentioning a “Pub a Day“
These will be 30 pubs you probably not been in, never been in, not sure what to expect, dont know where they are.
We all know by now which are the best ale pubs in Sheffield but what about the others we dont hear of as they have not got Facebook or Twitter or there isnt a website for us to look at or they are not in the town centre.
Below are my 30 pubs and I have been to each one and a link to their page is on their pub name below:
