Museum Public House

Large city centre pub located next to Orchard Square shopping centre and split over three levels. Serves food all day and has a well-stocked bar.

Built on the site of the mortuary for Sheffield Hospitals, the vaulted ceilings can still be seen in the cellar. The pub has gone through many name changes since it opened in 1897. It was originally called The Museum, but as the Orchard Square development was built around it, the pub changed its name to The Orchard, The Brewing Trough and The Hogshead, before finally reverting back to its original name in February 2005 after a complete refurbishment.

    People on the next table brought in a dog upstairs. I myself have a dog. Love dogs. Sat it on the chair and put its water bowl on the table for it to drink from. Member of staff knew it was there because she seemed to know the couple. The female staff member whose birthday it was the night before and didn't get in until 2 in the morning, drunk on Prosecco.

    Tonight at 8:25pm we went to the Museum in order to have dinner, after reading that food would have been served 'til 9pm.

    We asked if we could still have dinner and the answer we received was that the kitchen was already closed... at 8:25pm.

    I warmly suggest the owner to update food serving time, in order to avoid costumers wasting their time going to the pub to have dinner after 8pm.

    Food was terrible. Smash instead of mashed potato and boil in the bag vegetables. Portion sizes are very small and not worth £8.50!

    I hadn't been in this pub for quite a few years and was very pleasantly surprised when we visited it again the other week. It's very nice inside and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it.

News for Museum:

  • The pub previously known to many as the Hogshead in Orchard Square is now called the Museum.

  • The advent of "designer glasses" has apparently made the theft of glasses from pubs even worse. Stella Artois and Guinness have both recently launched new style glasses, which have become a popular item to take home after a night out. The Hogshead (now Museum) in Orchard Square claims to lose over 20 glasses a week, mainly to students. Manager Mark Simmonite says that when students arrive at university they often forget to bring glasses, cutlery and ash trays with them. His pub seems to provide a place where all of these items can be "borrowed" and never returned. The Devonshire Cat on Wellington Street has a special "Yard of Ale" glass designed for Belgian Kwak beer. The beer costs £2.70 but you'll have to put down a £10 deposit for the glass because it's so popular that many customers are tempted to take it home with them!
