This walk is easily done in an evening; I did this one on a Friday after work. Usually best to drink half pints then you can cover them all easily.
The full list of pubs are:
(Pub1) University Arms – the starting point, I got the 52 bus to here, always has the usual ales on and some guest ales and you can find Thornbridge on here as well, plenty of seating area and have an outside beer garden, they do also serve food. They have a few kegs on too. 8 ales are available.
You can also get the tram which heads to Middlewood/ Malin Bridge and get off at the University stop and there is a short walk.
(Pub2) The Bath – a walk back into town down West Street and turn off to the right to visit this Thornbridge pub, they have usually 3 Thornbridge ales and 3 guest ale, plus a selection of kegs, this pub is not open on a Sunday. The list of ales is nicely on the wall so you can see what you are drinking.
(Pub3) Red Deer – a short walk along West Street and this is on Pitt Street just near to Revolution de Cuba. Serving 8 ales and they also serving food, they also have some games to play as well
(Pub4) Devonshire Cat – a walk through Devonshire Green to this pub which is an Abbeydale pub so expect Abbeydale ales and a selection of guest ales, they also have a selection of kegs and bottles, they do serve food. A must visit pub this one. 12 ales are available.
(Pub5) – Head of Steam – continue walking up the same road as the last pub and walk past City Hall and top of Fargate to this new pub, formally The Monk, they have 10 ale pumps and some from Strongarm Brewery, they also have kegs and serving food.
(Pub6) – Graduate – Recently refurbished and looking very modern now, still has the feel of a sporty pub. They now serve 4 ales and also 5 keg lines. You can also get food here.
(Pub7) – Rutland Arms – Quite a walk to the next pub so you best get your google map out. A mix of ales here so you never know what to expect, they do have kegs as well, and serve food with a beer garden. 8 ales are available.
(Pub8) – Sheffield Tap – This pub is by the train station, 11 ale pumps and sometimes they do featured breweries, loads of seating area but dont do food. You can sometimes spend quite a while here.
(Pub9) Old Queens Head – This is to the right of the last pub and the oldest pub in Sheffield and they have 5 ale pumps and mostly have Thwaites ales, they also serve food in here.
You can do this walk the opposite way if you are coming from the train station, but more of an uphill walk
