The Old House is back, cosier and quirkier than ever
An old favourite returned to the city centre bar scene last month as The Devonshire reverted back to its original name (and roots) as The Old House, once a popular boozer amongst ale drinkers and gin lovers from a few years back.
The Old House was famous for its award-winning pies, customisable Sunday roast dinners, an extensive cocktail menu and a range of craft beers and real ales, so it wasn’t uncommon to find the Exposed team circa 2015 propping up the bar on a Friday eve.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of it, you can expect an eclectic home-from-home pub atmosphere playing tunes in a quirky, cosy setting with a nod to mid-20th-century décor. It’s a bit of us, really. And probably a bit of you, too.
The Old House first opened its doors in August 2007; back then it was known for having no pretence, just good drinks, great food and friendly, knowledgeable staff. That’s something that Kane Yeardley, managing director of True North Brew Co., the owners of the pub, is keen to bring back. “We’re looking forward to welcoming back a much-loved part of Sheffield’s heritage and we’re very excited for what the future holds,” he told Exposed.
“Whether you’re familiar with The Old House or a new visitor, we want you to come in and sample the atmosphere and surroundings that we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to re-create. The Old House is back to being your local city centre boozer!”
