Thinking of going to Sheff quite early for a few beers,is Kelham Island pub within walking distance of the stn or do i want bus/tram. IIRC not to many real ale pubs in Attercliffe either
If it is still there (I haven't been for a couple of years) the Kings Head on Attercliffe road does (did) good real ale, about 5-7 mins walk to DVS. The Cocked Hat (next to DSV) did do some really good Pedigree up to about 3 years ago when it changed hands, again not been in there for a couple of years, so the Pedigree may have improved since the last time I was there.
There are some good ale houses just offthe tram stops on the way to/from Kelham Island from DVS, with the likes of the Devenshire Cat, Fat Cat (near Kelham Island), Red Deer and Wellington (previously the Cask & Cutler).
Though you might not see much of the game if you have a couple of beers in each.
Have a good day out on Friday.
