We have had a couple new pubs open in Kelham Island Area so it’s time to do a complete pub run around this area. In total there are 12 pubs to go around, I would suggest all-day session for this walk as it’s not easy to do in an evening unless you are a very fast drinker and I guarantee you will have more than one in some of the pubs.
If you click on each pub name it will take you to their page on my website which will have more details about the pub and also a map.

(Pub9) The Old Workshop – from the last pub turn right and take the next right and keep walking up the road and you will see this one, another newish pub and is run by the Beer Engine people, there are no cask in here, but they have 9 keg lines and you can buy thirds. This place doesn’t open until 4.00
(Pub10) Gardeners Rest – from the last pub go back to the main road and turn right and cross over another main road and you will see this pub. A community run pub and has a selection of Sheffield Brewery ales and some guest ales. There are 10 ale pumps to choose from.
(Pub11) The Forest – from the last pub walk back to the main road and walk up the hill under the bridge and you will see this pub on the right. This is the Toolmaker pub and will feature their ales, the brewery is behind the pub. 6 ales are to choose from.
(Pub 12) Wellington – from the last pub walk down the main road and when you get to the other main road cross over and turn left and you will see this pub, it is near to Shalesmoor tram stop. This is the Neepsend Brewery tap pub and features some of their ales and guest ales, they have 7 ale pumps and a few keg lines.
From this pub you can catch the tram from Shalesmoor back into town. If you do this walk the other way round and start at Neepsend then be careful as The Workshop doesn’t open until 4.00.
I would suggest you have google map ready on your phone incase you get lost.
