Cambridge Hotel


Recommended Posts

I was researching the Cambridge Hotel today back in 1910. I had thought that it was on Cambridge Street, where the old Barleycorn used to be. However, I was looking through old newpapers on Find My Past and it says The Cambridge Hotel in Sheffield was on Penistone Road. Can someone put me straight please.

Barleycorn did change to the Cambridge i think in the late70s early 80s...... there's a photo of Teddy boys outside the Barleycorn this was taken mid 70s i think.... We went in once before it shut (possibly underage😉) and re-opend as Cambridge.

Brian Firth used to have Cambridge on penistone rd......one time we went in here bang on 7pm (opening time it was good friday and sunday hours)..........the place was packed, all were well oiled.

When i asked Brian how come....'weve had a pigeon fanciers meeting' 🤣🍺

🤣..........theyd all been locked in from 2pm

The Barleycorn had a bad rep and changed its name to the Cambridge. It then expanded into the building next door to become Henry’s.

I should have said the premises next door. It’s all the same building.
