Anyone remember Henry's Wine Bar on Cambridge Street, Sheffield City Centre?

I used to pop in every now and again (particularly before Sheffield City Hall concerts and shows for a pre-gig drink)

I remember once having a fantastic beer in the style of a proper Yorkshire bitter from Spire of Chesterfield there. Sadly thats the only good memory & just about the only time I got a drinkable pint there. On one occasion I had three consecutive pints of vinegar pulled and the mate who was with me had the same experience, having ordered different beers. I have the feeling that if it ever reopens they'll try & flog what was left in the cellar before it shut. (They'd probably be plenty in the Sheffield CAMRA consignetti who'd sup it up too!) By contrast the Brewhouse, the little place off the back, was really quite good, even if it never did end up brewing.

Was it one of the first in Sheffield?

Probably was, certainly the first I heard of, and it was quite high profile indicating it was unusual. I preferred the Wapentake over the road. More my scene, table football, sticky floor, local bands and beer. Used to do basic food at dinnertime too!
