Hay's Wine Rooms Spirit Vaults

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for info on this wine bar? that shut around 1968. It was situated in what is now 'The Ruskin Building' next door to the Head of Steam on Norfolk St. Does anyone remember visiting it or anything about it?

The one thing I remember about it is that they served spirits in quarter gill measures rather than the usual sixth of a gill.

Is this the same Hays that sold Hallamshire Cream Sherry?

I had a black velvet in there in around 1962 and it was served in a small tankard, the real stuff . It wasn't a wine bar it was just a public house really, wine bars hadn't arrived in Sheffield then.

I wasn't sure tbh- it certainly seemed to be different to other 'pubs' at the time. Was it upmarket?
