The Sheaf View (Heeley) Sheffield Reviews
Feb 10, 2007
Were I ever to draw up a list of my current top ten favourite pubs in Sheffield (and let's not rule that out) then The Sheaf View would sit proudly at the top of the pile.
There are so many reasons to love this pub, from it's staunch 'no children allowed' policy to it's unspoiled traditional décor. This really is a proper beer drinkers pub.
It's position in the eyes of ale lovers is underlined by the range of fine English and European beers it has on draught - ranging from local brews such as Moonshine and Easy Rider to various Belgian and German beers such as Erdinger and Pauliner. There's also a good range of high quality spirits and even ciders from both Devon and Brittany to refresh you on a hot summer's evening.
This is truly a place to come and enjoy your beer and so there's no chain pub décor, no jukebox or TV and certainly no gangs of lager drinking teenagers to annoy everyone.
But most of all – it's cheap as chips. You can expect to pay at least fifty pence a pint less for any drink than you would in pubs in the surrounding area.
Situated on a quite side street off the main road it perches on the hill overlooking the river Sheaf. Well to be honest, because of a small factory between the pub and the river you can't actually see the river but the main railway line down to London that runs alongside it is directly in eye level when you’re sat outside in the beer garden.
Oh yes, the beer garden. Whilst the pub itself is slightly small it has a large beer garden built out back, nestling into the side of a steep grassy bank leading up to the pubs own car park. This is a fantastic sunspot and ideal for spending a long summers evening watching the trains go by and supping your favourite ale.
Best of all is it's proximity to Bramall Lane so it's an ideal starting (and finishing point) on match days - which means it gets very busy when there's a game on.
One of Sheffield's finest.
