Work lunch at The Forum today whilst visiting Sheffield. Had fish & chips which was plentiful and good. Place was packed out (presumably due to people being off work with the strikes) and the staff were struggling to cope
this bar is far too expensive for what it is. there are plenty of better bars within a 1min walk. avoid!!!!
It has good moments but generally it's loud and full of snobby people, no soft furnishing and the walls are tiled so every conversation echoes endlessly around, giving you a headache after 20 minutes. Drink quality is variable but the food is decent.
The forum is located on Devonshire street, the trendy side of Sheffield city centre. The loyal customer base is varied. It consists of Students, Yuppies and older people.
It can get a bit Pretenious and snobby at times at night which is a big turn off, but it's still a friendly place to hang around most times. Could do worse than come here!
Does look like a swimming pool, but i'll let 'em off! Really nice in the summer though!
I forgot to mention that there's loads of nice little boutique shops as well, which are worth a visit!
I used to work on the door with tricky trev for about 3.5yrs and probably left in 2003. It was brill back then and the customers were great.
Yeh the outside seating does look like a swimming pool, just missing the water. Use to drink leffe on draft when i used to go out to the forum and the weekends they used to have anthony playing funky house all night.
Those were the days.
The Forum has always had a great, friendly atmosphere, and is loved by hundreds of loyal customers. The Forum is more than just a restaurant. It has shops hidden behind, and transforms into a great night scene once the sun sets.
Great spot in the summer in particular. Good selection of beers on tap but a bit pricey. Close to the Devonshire Cat, which is a better pub, but it’s a good place for a quick beer or as part of a pub crawl with a few other good bars on Division Street. It has a small outdoor seating area but many chose to sit on the grass on Deveonshire Green next to it.
The shops aren’t really my thing but it’s ok if there’s something you’re into in there or if you’re after a speciality or a unique gift.
Not nearly as pretentious as it once was. A good place for a relaxed drink in the afternoon. A nice enough seating set up outside in the summer, giving you a good place to watch the world go by. The drinks range is adequate, the customers varied. The fact that it does look like a swimming pool is a bit of a downside but not that much to stop anyone going. The food they do is slightly above average.
The Forum is a great place to head for in Sheffield as it’s got lots of things to do and see. It houses some great independent boutiques that provide truly individual and unique clothes, lingerie and accessories. I’m so pleased that the gorgeous Gash lingerie boutique has recently moved there as it has brought the place to life and made it a bonafide shopping destination for those of us who hate to be the same as everybody else. The Forum cafe bar is nice, especially in summer as they have a great outdoor seating area including deckchairs to sit and watch the world go by. They don’t provide the sunshine needed though unfortunately. Well worth a shopping visit to.
The Forum is situated in the trendy student area of Sheffield which is Division Street. The decor is great, its modern and funky, there is plenty of seating situated around the place which is always a good thing after a few too many drinks. In the day the Forum acts as a cafe/bar where food is served and at night it is a bar to the hip and funky. The atmosphere is great, everytime I have been in it has been very busy, the only downside is the prices which can be quite steep, but this aside, its a great place to drink. There is also a patio area where you can sit (or stand) outside weather permitting!
This is at the top end of Divison Street, its a mixture of shops, boutiques, bar, restuarant and the “common room”/pool room.
With the recent redevelopment of Devonshire Green they now have a larger outdoor seating area lookingover the new green.
There’s a good selection of beers and drinks available and the food is very good. It does have a good mixture of people that go in here students as well as professionals and a few older people (+50).
Back in t’day, the Forum comprised nothing more than a ground-floor café, poster shop and Dr Martens shop with a couple of clothes shops thrown in for good measure. These days, the smoky little café has been replaced by an uber-trendy bar, the Dr Martens shop has was stamped out in the late nineties and there’s a rather snazzy upstairs pool bar called The Common Room. That’s not to say it’s not good though – the Forum will always be the place to be. There are some great vintage clothes shops, knick-knack shops and fabulous clothes boutiques, as well as some great music in the bars at the weekends. Proof that things can only get better!
The Forum bar is really nice with some great music, although the drinks are a little pricey, and it does seem a little pretentious in there on a night. Its still a great bar, especially if its a nice day and you can get out on the terrace.
