Over the past few weeks, a number of Sheffield’s pubs and micropubs have been the target of vandalism and break-ins. We are now aware of at least six venues that have been affected.
The Beer House on Ecclesall Road was broken into by thieves who stole a collection tin for St. Luke’s Hospice. Just down the road, the Ecclesall Ale Club had its front door vandalised just two weeks after opening, with the repair bill coming in at around £600. The Itchy Pig on Glossop Road in Broomhill also had its front door targeted by vandals who threw a slab of concrete through the glass.
Meanwhile, the Bar Stewards on Gibraltar Street was broken into twice in the space of 48 hours, resulting in beer, cash and music equipment all being stolen and considerable damage to the shop front. A number of city centre pubs, including the Bath Hotel, the Three Tuns and the Three Cranes, have also been targeted.
Anyone with information on any of these incidents should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101.
