A popular Samuel Smiths pub right next to Sheffield's Theatre district.
There has apparently been a pub on this site for over 200 years, predating many other buildings around it - including the Sheffield Town Hall! The origins of the name are not certain, but rumours state it was named after a bear baiting pit that was located in Sheffield's Botanical Gardens!
This pub survived the both the Sheffield blitz and localised town planning where a number of other buildings in the area were flattened.
A traditional two-roomed pub, it is grade-II listed and posters from many of the shows at nearby Crucible and Lyceum Theatres adorn the walls.
