The pub

A great selection of local beers and wines

At the Anglers Rest, Bamford, we regularly change our cask ales and offer a full range of drinks. We were named District Pub of the Year in the years 2017, 2020 and 2022 by Sheffield and District CAMRA. Inside, an inviting blend of traditional features and modern comfort makes you feel instantly at home while our friendly staff ensure you have a lovely time.

Our range of craft beers changes regularly.

Delicious, freshly cooked food

For 2024 the Anglers Rest has a new prominent local chef, John Parsons. Originally from Hope, John has worked in numerous successful restaurants including the Ivy in London and Hathersage Social Club. John specialises in comfort food and world pub food.
