The bath hotel occupies a triangular site at the end of a mid-victorian terrace on Victoria Street, Sheffield. Despite a covenant preventing the use of the site for the sale of alcohol, it became a pub in the 1880’s & was bought around the time of the first world war by Ind Coope, which in 1931 refaced the ground floor and gave it an internal refit. The layout and fittings are as they were then apart from the closure, some time ago, of the off-sales. So there are two seperate bars, each with their own character.  

In the sharp angle of the two streets is the snug, with its fixed leatherette covered side benches and hatch to the servery. The larger bar also has original fixed seating and brown glazed brick to the front of the counter. Brian & Ruth Johnson came to the Bath Hotel as tenants in November 2001 and subsequently bought the place. In 2003 the Bath Hotel won the CAMRA’s Conservation Award in conjunction with English Heritage and Victorian Society. In 2012 the pub was leased to Thornbridge Brewery until Brian took back the helm in May 2022.

Apart from the pleasant atmosphere of the restored pub, the beer range makes it one to seek out. It is a genuine free house selling a range of local real ale and craft beers. The Bath Hotel caters for a wide mix of clientele and it is a welcome oasis for real ale just off the bustle of the West Street circuit.
