Our comfortable pub has always been a local landmark for people to meet, relax and enjoy the good times together offering good hearty pub fare and an enormous selection of beers.
OMG what's happened to this pub? Overpriced, short measures, and bar staff with attitude. Avoid.
One of the best pubs around. They serve so many different types of beer, it's amazing. It took us about 6 months to find the place when we arrived (kept hearing about it, never got there). Though when we did, was worth it.
So many beers, so little time. The staff are fantastic, and can suggest a good beer to go with the meal, or depending on what you like to drink. If it is quiet enough, they remember you at the bar, and suggest other beers based on what you thought of the last one.
They certainly know what they are doing, and I'll be back there next time I'm in Sheffield.
Local members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), who are normal drinkers who appreciate a good pint in a good pub, have voted the Devonshire Cat on Wellington Street in Sheffield city centre as the winner of their "Pub of the Month" award for September 2006.
The "Pub of the Month" award is designed to highlight pubs and bars that serve good quality real ale in friendly and comfortable surroundings. The Devonshire Cat serves a massive range of quality real ales, as well as genuine continental beers and traditional cider, in a modern and smart setting. It can also claim to be one of the local pioneers of recommending a suitable beer to go with meals served in the pub, with suggestions on the menu - with the massive range of styles and flavours of beer available, beer can often be matched with food better than wine!
Dave Williams, Chairman of the Sheffield & District branch of CAMRA, commenting on the Devonshire Cat, said "The Devonshire Cat has to be one of Sheffield's premier drinking establishments. If you want well-kept beer served in a trendy environment by knowledgeable staff then the Devonshire Cat is the place to get it!".
A presentation evening will be held at the Devonshire Cat this Tuesday the 12th September from 8PM, when Dave Williams will present the "Pub of the Month" certificate to the pub's managers, and an Indian finger buffet will be laid on.
