The Old Queen’s Head, next to Sheffield Interchange, is believed to be the oldest domestic building in Sheffield, and is thought to have begun life as a shooting lodge for Sheffield Manor, later becoming he wash house.
It is known to have become a beer house by the 1840’s and passed through the hands of several breweries before being acquired by Thwaites around 20 years ago. The front lounge, occupying the half-timbered older part of the building has an original fireplace and carved bay window overlooking the outside seating area.to the rear are two further seating areas around the central bar, and there is an upstairs function room.
Mike and Suzana took on the pub 4½ years ago, and serve a range of Thwaites beers, usually including Nutty Black, Wainwright and Lancaster Bomber, together with two rotating seasonal beers.
The pub opens from 10am to 11pm every day and food is available 12 to 9pm (4pm Sundays). There are regular food nights – Monday is Czech specialities reflecting Mike and Suzana’s home town Prague, Tuesday is pie night, Fish on Wednesday and burgers Thursday, each with special offers. A traditional roast is available Sundays.
The award will be presented on Tuesday 11 April, and to mark the occasion all cask beers will be reduced to £2.50 from 7pm
