Brief History and Interior
A corner pub located in the centre of Sheffield, was once owned by the Whitbread brewery who opened the pub in 1981 with the aim of replicating it across the country as a chain of Henry’s. The name originated from the estate agents that once occupied the site. Along with the adjacent Barleycorn Hotel, it was knocked into a larger premises and the name was taken from the estate agent.
In more recent years the pub had changed many hands and names and had been left in a state of disrepair until Mark Simmonite and his brother Adam, both seasoned publicans decided to develop the site. Luckily for them the recession had halted plans to develop that part of the city and they were granted a license for the property.
Spread over two floors, the interior of Henry’s is very spacious with large windows letting in plenty of light. There are high ceilings, pillars and plenty of seating throughout including a restaurant upstairs. Henry’s is certainly not a traditional pub, neither is it a Wetherspoons, instead it’s a venue that’s suitable for all that serves reasonably priced food and has a great selection of ales.
Two banks of handpumps dispense an excellent range of around a dozen ales. Breweries such as Raw, The Brew Company, Black Sheep and the Liverpool Organic Brewery feature along with a larger than usual keg lager selection, traditional cider and Leffe.
The selection is forever changing and in just the first three months of opening, punters had downed 300 different ales.
