We have removed the Navigation pub at Killamarsh from our database, as it has closed.
The Kelham Island Tavern is holding a mid-summer beer festival from 19th to 22nd June. There will be more than 30 beers available that are new to Sheffield. The pub will be open form 12PM until late throughout the event, and food is available between 12PM and 3PM Monday - Saturday.
On the Saturday, 21st June, at around 5pm, Sheffield CAMRA will be presenting the certificate to landlord Trevor Wraith and his staff for being voted Sheffield Real Ale Pub of the Year by local CAMRA members. The pub has gone forward into the Yorkshire CAMRA Pub of the Year competition as Sheffield's nomination.
The Kelham Island Tavern is an independently run free house and can be found on Russell Street, close to Sheffield city centre.
CAMRA is the Campaign for Real Ale, a volunteer run consumer group promoting proper cask conditioned beer, traditional cider and good pubs, with around 90,000 members nationally.
Chapeltown pub celebrates 10 years in national Good Beer Guide
CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, which is published annually, is the real ale drinkers' bible, listing all the best real ale pubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Entries are selected and written by normal CAMRA members who drink in them on a regular basis and are suitably impressed. The entries are not based on one off visits by inspectors, nor can you pay for your pub to go in the guide. Therefore you can trust that any pub featured in the Good Beer Guide deserves it's listing!
The Commercial at Chapeltown, Sheffield, this year celebrates being featured in the Good Beer Guide for the tenth year running, which I'm sure you will agree is a fantastic achievement. It is a well-deserved milestone, with the pub consistently serving a great selection of high quality real ales, always in good condition, and usually featuring beers from the Wentworth Brewery just a few miles away. The pub's traditional multi-roomed design (the pub was built in 1890) offering something for everyone, friendly staff, proper cider and occasional beer festivals and special events also help make the pub a worthy guide entry.
The fact that the pub counts residents of not just Chapeltown but also Barnsley and Rotherham amongst its regular custom is testament to the pub's excellent reputation.
The local branch of CAMRA will be visiting the Commercial to present a certificate marking 10 years in the Good Beer Guide and to join the regulars in the pub's celebrations on the evening of Tuesday 11th June and everyone is welcome to come along for a few beers with us!
