Any ideas has to what might have been the biggest pub within the Sheffield boundary ? I mean with living accommodation included- not talking the likes of the Black Swan which had a large concert room but big buildings. Two that come to my mind are; Earl of Arundel (Queens Road) and the Amberley Hotel (Attercliffe Common) ?

Earl of Arundel and Surrey (AKA as the Pipefitters arms) I came up with but just read you had as well, missed it when I first read your OP honest. My memory fades but what about the Elm Tree at Manor Top and maybe the Punch Bowl at the top of Gleadless Common. i'm still thinking.

The Ball, Darnall Road must be the tallest pub. A lovely building too. Been shut down for a few years now but the original interior disappeared long before it closed.

 You are standing right beside the Barclays Bank and the next door neighbour going down is the Kings Arms directly across from the Yorkshire Penny Bank and I think the gas or electric shop. The 95 Walkley bus used to stop right outside of the revolving doors of the Kings Arms . It was the only pub in Sheffield with Higsons beer on tap

Ha, the revolving doors you mention have triggered a little glimpse of something I'd forgot and I vaguely remember it now.
