I didn't expect anything less but visiting the Devonshire Cat after a few years away didn't disappoint. There was a great selection of well kept beer, and the service was excellent.

Dating back to 2001 and bought by Abbeydale Brewery back in 2013, we established ourselves as one of the very first beer bars in Sheffield. We've built our reputation on serving quality craft and cask, and have beer running through everything we do, from our food to our Cocktails. We're fiercely proud to be part of the Sheffield community and our menu is sourced locally, as well as being fresh and homemade. A minute off Division Street in the heart of Sheffield, we're firmly part of the Sheffield drinking circuit and have free private hire for large groups. Outside of beer our passion is in Whisky, try one off our 75 strong list, or join us for one of our many private tasting sessions.
