Excellent pub. It was a good pub when they only had tetley on, now they have a range of well kept ales and still that great jukebox. Staff are exemplary and the landlady is a delight. 10/10

There used to be a time I'd settle down in here when it threw its doors open of a Friday night and they'd have to tip me out the same door at closing a gallon of Tetley's later. Yes, I'm afraid I get all nostalgic whenever I return to this place. Used to have a separate back room then - notorious as the place for getting anything you wanted off 'the back of a lorry'. That's long gone and there have been a number of makeovers over the years but essentially the front bit is just the same.

Always been a student pub and always had one of the best juke boxes I've come across. No way can you come here for a quiet drink most evenings, and certainly years back it could get seriously raucous in a decent, non-threatening, non-violent way (though I guess that's subjective, before anyone starts), and the 'smoke fug' was something else. Blimey, I've had some nights in here.

Now, it's just as busy, the music is just as loud, the fug has gone, the beer range is broader and the raucousness tempered and I guess that's no bad thing. Whenever I come back to Sheffield I come here, and I always have a good time - it's like bumping into an old friend that you realise you'll always be fond of (as opposed to those you bump into that remind you why you lost touch in the first place).

Good pub with plenty of cosy/private corners, good beers, friendly service but loud music even early evening when you are trying to relax but generally OK

Not to be confused with the nearby Porter Brook. One of the better pubs in the Ecclesall Road area, very busy at weekends. Much improved since the smoking ban.
