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.

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!

I miss Henry’s - I thought it had a bit of character about it and was always a decent atmosphere.

The little craft bar they opened on the back of it was decent aswell.

There was also Mr. Kites on Division St. right up Dev’ Green end. Also a couple on ‘Eccy Road’.

May have found myself in Henry’s a handful of times, as at one time was part of the bar crawl. Never went to Mr. Kites, nor the ones up Eccy Road, as found them too pretentious in the mid-80’s and often frequented by the 10/- millionaires of the parish! 
“£10 for a small glass of the latest must-drink vino”…… Emperors new clothes if you ask me. £10 a bottle is pushing the boat out for me these days….. 😆

One of the first was VAT ONE on Glossop Rd which was virtually opposite the Baths on the corner .

The same building later became Barton’s diner
