The Bath Hotel (West Street) Sheffield Reviews
Apr 07, 2007
The Bath Hotel is another of those oddities I like so much – a local pub in the city centre.
Hidden down something of a side alley it's a typically old fashioned establishment that now nestles amidst various modern buildings that have been erected around it.
Consisting of three small rooms it could definitely be described as cosy and intimate. The general design and décor looks like it hasn't been altered since the 1930s – it's all tiled walls and floors set off with stained glass.
Presumably it got it's name from it's vicinity to the nearby swimming baths (which no longer exist) but I'm not certain whether it was ever officially affiliated to said establishment but the general amount of tiling certainly lends it that swimming baths feel.
For those of the male persuasion a visit to the gents is a moderately interesting experience. The usual trough urinal that you get in a place like this is all present and correct but it seems to have an unusually high step with which to approach it. At first glance this doesn't look that odd but once you're in position you do actually feel like you're at a considerable height and only inches from the ceiling. Very disorientating indeed.
The beer was reasonably priced, the bar staff friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Another little known treasure in the Sheffield conurbation!
