Pub heritage news

‘Yorkshire’s Real Heritage Pubs : Pub Interiors of Special Historic Interest’  (2nd.Edition) was available at the recent CAMRA Great British Beer Festival at Olympia and is now available nationwide. The official launch is at Whitelocks, (Leeds), on 29th.August. In attendance will be the MP for Leeds North West, Greg Mulholland. Greg is Chair of ‘Save the Pub,’ an all party parliamentary group which aims to preserve and protect the Great British pub.

Sheffield pubs featured are: The Bath Hotel, The Cross Keys (Handsworth), The Grapes, The Manor Castle, The Railway (Brightside), the Sheffield Tap, The Travellers Rest (Oughtibridge) and The White Lion. The book costs £4.99 (£3.99 to CAMRA members) and is available from the CAMRA shop.

Also in hand is the creation of a local list of Sheffield pub interiors which, whilst not of national or regional importance, nevertheless contain elements of historic interest like some old fixtures and fittings or much of their original layout. Examples include: Carbrook Hall, The Dog and Partridge,  Fagans,  The New Barrack, The Old Crown (London Road), The Princess Royal, Ye Olde Shakespeare Inn (Heeley), Shakespeare (West Bar), The Sportsman Inn (Blackburn), The Wagon and Horses (Heeley Green), and The Wellington (Shalesmoor). There are a number of other pubs who have distinctive historical exteriors. These include Bloo88 (Hallamshire Hotel), The Rutland Arms and The Ship Inn.

We are grateful to the Sheffield Star, Morning Telegraph and the Yorkshire Post for mentioning the creation of the local list and a number of subsequent suggestions from readers. We welcome other examples of Sheffield pubs with distinctive historical features. Please email information to:
