Brown Bear Public House

The Brown Bear is one of the oldest pubs in Sheffield city centre, dating back to the the late 18th century. It is a Grade II listed building and predates the nearby Town Hall. The pub was possibly named after the bear baiting pit that was located in the Botanical Gardens. The pit closed in the 1870s after a child got too close and was killed by the two resident bears.

    I think the Brown Bear pub is amazing. I love the bar staff, especially the young one. She is extremely polite and always welcoming. Her name is Laura.

    Go there Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Cheap decent proper lager and beer (none of that Fosters/Carling). Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Much more character than any bar on West Street.
