About Bar

The Church House Pub located in the heart of the City, is one of Sheffield most unique attractions.

 Conveniently located in Sheffield’s busiest shopping district.

In recent years The Church House become a well-known music venue among Sheffield’s live music fans as a premier live music venue. 


The first stone of the building was laid, on the site of an old vicarage, on 19th.August 1859 by the Church of England Educational Institute, an organisation formed in 1839 to promote the education of young adults. Over the next hundred years or so, the site was used for various purposes. For example, the 1911 Census listing shows it was then probably the Board Schools Cookery Department. It was also used as a school for choir boys. (…)

In 1987, it was sold to Grand Metropolitan and converted into a pub: Gladstones, named after William Ewart Gladstone (1809/98), Prime Minister on four occasions. A £350,000 investment saw some opening out of the separate rooms, although several internal walls were retained, acting as dividers between parts of the open-plan layout.

Star Pubs bought the building in 2012. A change to the current name and a comprehensive £220,000 refurbishment followed, including restoration of original features, exposing the brickwork and the installation of history boards and beer-bottle chandeliers. Display boards dedicated to Sheffield’s past and to cask ale provide interest. The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, John Campbell, conducted the reopening ceremony in November 2012.
