Benjamin Huntsman Public House

A typical Wetherspoon pub, serving the usual range of mainstream drinks alongside a wide selection of real ales. Food is also served from 8AM until late evening. The pub is split over two floors, with a smaller bar upstairs and the large main bar on the ground floor.

The pub is named after the inventor of the famous crucible steel making process that made Sheffield famous. The pub is located on Cambridge Street, originally called Coalpit Lane, which was renamed when the Duke of Cambridge, laid the foundation stone of the nearby Crimean War monument in 1857.

    Just been watching Fred Dibnah on T.V. at Abbeydale Industrial Museum. Showing how Benjamin Huntsman made crucible steel. Went on't interweb to look him up. Came across your review of The Benjamin Huntsman pub.

    If you want a real pub, good ale, and best Sunday lunch you'll ever have, try the Huntsman on Manchester Road, Thurlstone, S36 9QU (that is when everything reopens).

    Me, I'm just a happy customer missing a god pub.

    We go in the Benjamin Huntsman most Saturday nights but don't know why because the staff just do not seemed to be bothered in serving. They'd just rather talk amongst themselves. Avoid if you want serving quick.

    I've been a fairly regular customer at the Benjamin Huntsman for at least five years, calling perhaps a couple of times a month; being able to choose from a wide range of real ales, at low prices is rare, and that's what attracts me to the pub.

    However, on Sunday 28 October 2007 I called in on my own at around 1PM. Over the following two hours I probably had three or four pints, didn't talk to anyone, in fact never said a word, except "pint of Abbot please". I guess I probably made my way up and down the two flights of stairs a couple of times (without incidence) during that time, but on approaching the bar for another pint, a female member of staff refused to serve me because I was "drunk".

    I'm 42 and been drinking beer since being 18 years old, and never been refused a drink for appearing drunk. It's left me bewildered and wondering how someone who is on their own, not talking to anyone, not being obnoxious, falling into people etc..., can be considered bad custom.

    I suppose I'll never find out, but it makes me apprehensive about going there again.
