As I nominated Bar Stewards as a Pub of the Month I think I should, at least, write an article about this outstanding micro-pub.
Yet it’s a pub I’ve only visited once – on a damp, cold Saturday afternoon last December as, despite the weather, we continued on a city centre pub crawl and called in. The overwhelming feeling for all of us, as we stumbled through the door, was of being made very welcome.
There was a great choice of cask ales on the bar, along with a choice of keg beers for those who prefer them and some more in cans in the nearby fridge, all served by friendly and knowledgable staff.
As well as a few tables inside, there is a large yard at the rear with outdoor seating, some of which is under cover.
Bar Stewards was set up by a couple of beer enthusiasts, Alan and Charlie, initially as a pop-up for a couple nights a week and their project has progressed to being open every day of the week, mostly in the evenings but longer at the weekend. The venue is available for private hire and even offers a mobile bar service.
It’s our Pub of the Month award winner for May 2022. Give it a try. Join us for the certificate presentation (and a beer or two) on Tuesday 10 May from 8pm.
Bar Stewards can be found at 163 Gibraltar Street, Sheffield S3 8UA, between West Bar and Kelham Island. Buses 57, 81, 82 and 86 pass the front door or it is walkable from the City Centre.
