Whether you’re looking for plush surroundings, great food or
both, Sheffield has restaurants to suit a variety of tastes.
Probably Sheffield’s best fine dining restaurant is the Michelin
starred Old Vicarage Restaurant [map]
in Ridgeway Village. The restaurant itself is housed in a 19th century
country house amidst beautiful landscaped gardens. The menu includes
dishes like char-roasted tomato tart with pepper marmalade and roast
Gressingham duck breast on black beluga lentils, which can be enjoyed
as an evening meal or a leisurely lunchtime repast.
If modern bistro style dining is your thing then why not book
a table at Richard Smith at Thyme [map]which
is listed in the Bib Gourmand recommendations for good food at moderate
prices. Formerly Smiths of Sheffield this restaurant has been revamped
to offer an upmarket dining experience. Although the restaurant is
mainly classed as modern British, you will find that other culinary
influences are evident. The food here is fine but affordable with
fish commanding a special place on the menu.
Also offering contemporary dining is the Blue Room Brasserie
a Modern European restaurant housed in a former Chinese restaurant.
The Chesterfield Road venue now sports a more refined image with a
stylish interior and a large menu that draw flavours from around
the world. Whatever your culinary persuasion there’s sure
to be enough on the menu for you to have a satisfying experience.
Brasserie Leo [map]
is a restaurant attached to the Charnock Hotel, but attracts diners
from miles around. While the dark wood and brass décor may
strike visitors as traditional, the ever changing menu, which features
dishes like blackened venison and sautéed king scallops, shows
that this restaurant is by no means old fashioned. You can be sure
of good food made from quality ingredients if you choose this restaurant
for your fine dining.
The Beauchief Hotel [map]
on Abbeyface Road in south Sheffield, also has its own quality restaurant
attached. Well known locally for its excellent food and service,
if you’re looking to impress this could be the eatery for you.
The bright interior welcomes you in and from then on you should enjoy
one of the best fine dining experiences Sheffield has to offer.
For great Italian food you have a couple of options. Probably
the most well known Italian restaurant in Sheffield is Nonnas
This restaurant has a loyal following that return time and again for
traditional Italian dishes like linguine and merluzzo, with affogato
(a miniature chocolate cake) for dessert.
Italian pizza and pasta dishes can also be found at Pappa
This cosy restaurant serves some truly delicious food. The atmosphere
may be more suited to an intimate evening for two but if you like
good food then this should certainly be an option.
If you’re dining out with vegetarians but are not a vegetarian
yourself and want somewhere where you can both enjoy a good meal,
why not try Vijays Indian Restaurant and Cocktail Bar in the
city centre. Behind the glitzy façade, you’ll find a
comfortable restaurant with a large menu, which has a wide
range of meat curries and a decent selection of vegetarian options.
