Had a taste of the ales on offer at the tap, what can I say there's no one who could try them all at once but would definitely recommend to anyone serious about their ales! Fantastic location right on the train line and great layout and atmosphere inside.

Very busy, buzzy, atmosphere different pub, right on the platform of Sheffield train station. Very helpful bartender who let me try the rosè wine before buying, which would have proved to be a little dry for my pallet. I decided on the strawberry frule beer which was quite sweet but absolutely lush! Last time we went I tried the toffee... More

Walked in to this lovely looking bar yesterday, there were loads of beers on offer. As I had already had a glass of wine elsewhere I decided to stick with that, not wishing to mix my drinks.

Lovely tiles, comfy bar area, lots of beers to chose from. If you have time between trains then you can't afford to miss this. Just sad we got there a few mins prior to last orders. always another time though.

Managed to have a short break in the sunshine whilst visiting the city for a couple of days. Had two excellent pints in very convivial company. The lovely spring sunshine made it perfect.

The Sheffield Tap take advantage of their location and hike prices accordingly. Though the ambiance is palatable, £8 for a large glass of wine is somewhat extortionate. There are many accommodating Hostelries within short walking distance that offer compatible friendly services at a fraction of the price. TripAdvisor's gift is to highlight establishments that 'rip off' customers. The Sheffield Tap... More

Didnt eat but loved the selection of beers and the live brewery in the back room. While I was there the man was cleaning out the pipes and brew and was happy to answer questions and pose for the camera with a cheery smile.

They have a good selection of real ale which they brew themselves and it's very good. Also it's right on the train station so this is the place to go if you are waiting for a train.
