Welcome to The Hammer & Pincers

One of Sheffield's best-loved locals

Back in the 1800s, the local blacksmith here in Bents Green introduced a taproom at his forge to look after his travelling customers. The Hammer & Pincers, as it's now known, is still going strong today.

Our historic stone-built pub is one of the most recognisable in Sheffield. Nestled between the edge of the Peak District and the university campus, the Hammer is a draw for anyone hitting the hills or the books. Walkers, students and regulars alike gather here to enjoy a banter over some beers and hearty pub-food, either cosied up to the fire in winter or outside soaking up the rays in summer. Plus there's always something going on, whether it's a bit of live sport on the box or our regular quiz night.
