About our venue

The Sword Dancer, purpose built in Autumn 2012, is a Hungry Horse pub situated in Handsworth, Sheffield. Handsworth Sword Dancers danced during both World Wars as they were not conscripted because they worked in the mines or steelworks – hence the name of the pub. There is a wall mural inside dedicated to them and memorobillia displayed of steel works and mining famous in Sheffield. The tradition of an annual dance is still performed. On arrival this new looking building has ample parking and easy access for pushchairs and wheelchairs. If you are looking for a good value meal served from an extensive menu and a wide range of quality drinks, look no further. We welcome business people taking a spot of lunch or an after-work drink from the business park, shoppers, families and couples covering the age spectrum. Our frequent  fun, relaxed entertainment nights are well attended, especially by local regulars from the nearby residential areas. We are always happy to see new faces.  Inside you are greeted by a vibrant colour scheme.  We have features such as booth seating with TV's in them and a lovely conservatory letting in natural light – on a good day this is especially nice. Quite open plan inside, you are welcome to dine anywhere. There is also an over 18's bar area with Sky Sports facilities, TV's and pool table to cater for everyone’s requirements. As you can imagine at this Hungry Horse venue we cater well for families to help you enjoy a relaxed, stress free dining experience. With this in mind the kids are able to build their own meal from the interesting choice of courses and then they can run off some energy in our cushioned, outdoor play area. Visitors to Tinsley Golf Park, Meadow Hall Shopping Mall and the Motor Point Arena are all made welcome here. We are on the main road which takes you all the way into Sheffield city centre. So be sure to come and join us for a Hungry Horse experience next time you are in the area.
