Members of the Sheffield & District branch of the Campaign for Real Ale have voted Fagans in Sheffield city centre their June Pub Of The Month award winner, and the certificate presentation was recently made at the pub by branch Chairman Dave Williams.
The Pub Of The Month awards are designed to highlight those pubs across Sheffield serving good real ale in friendly and comfortable surroundings. Fagans scores will on all points, with beer quality always top notch and a good atmosphere.
More about the pub is contained in the short pub of the month article from Beer Matters reproduced below:
Tucked away just off West Street and home to probably the best pint of Tetley Bitter in the area it is safe to say that, although it is well known by any self respecting Sheffielder, Fagan's is one of the finest hidden gems in the city centre.
Tom and Barbara Boulding have been running Fagan's for many a year now and can still be seen at either side of the bar keeping their customers entertained with wistful insights and anecdotes.
As well as the Tetley Bitter, Abbeydale Moonshine is also available. Just like the former this is always kept in tip-top condition. This may have something to do with the 'Guild of Master Cellarmen' award which can be seen close to the bar.
Some of the finest home cooked food comes from the kitchen. Not only is it value for money but you definitely wouldn't leave hungry (try the all day breakfast if you dare!)
In the back room regular traditional folk music can be heard almost every night and adorning the walls are some of the establishments better known customers. But whether you host your own hootenanny or produced one of the best albums of last year you are sure to be given a warm welcome!
