The best Restaurants in Sheffield you can’t miss
As Sheffield has grown and developed as a modern, cosmopolitan city, a key part of its refinement has been the rise of the area’s foodie scene. Now bursting with a wonderful selection of independent eateries, artisan cafes and street food vendors, you can also find a number of stunning fine dining options in and around the city centre. Whether you live in the heart of the action or in a neighbouring town such as Barnsley or Rotherham, we’ve put together a list of the best restaurants in Sheffield.
The Old Vicarage
Situated in the village of Ridgeway to the south-east of the city centre, the Old Vicarage has long been known as one of the top restaurants in Sheffield. Housed in a mid-19th century stone vicarage, the idyllic setting with views out across the Moss Valley provides an insight to the beautifully-presented dishes you can order off the Prestige set menus and an ever-changing list of daily specials.
Only around half a mile from the city’s cathedral, Kelham Island’s Jöro is one of the very best restaurants in Sheffield city centre. Based within a converted shipping container as part of the unconventional Krynkl development, the innovation continues with this restaurant’s creative menu. Based around a concept of sharing small plates, expect modern British, Asian and New Nordic cuisine when sampling the tasting menus and sitting at the Chef’s Bench.
Popular for its Sunday roast and afternoon tea, this bright and elegant restaurant serves contemporary British food with a Scandinavian twist. Listed in the Michelin Guide, the menu relies on fresh, seasonal ingredients and features a kids’ section for after a family outing to Endcliffe Park. If you love the restaurant so much that you don’t want to leave, simply book a room at the hotel it’s housed within, Brocco on the Park.
Juke and Loe
Just a stone’s throw from Brocco along Ecclesall Road, Juke and Loe is brought to you by brothers Luke and Joe. Seamlessly combining traditional ideas with modern flair, you can look forward to big, bold flavours and dishes that evolve with the seasons. Highly-rated by both professional reviewers and casual diners, the Saturday brunch is well worth checking out.
Not far the other side of Endcliffe Park in a residential area, Rafters is 10 minutes from the city centre by car and one of the most highly-rated restaurants in Sheffield. Characterised by stylish decor and immaculately-presented dishes, this is one of the best places to go for a memorable fine dining experience. The restaurant pays homage to its Sheffield roots through plenty of local touches including the cutlery and furniture.
It doesn’t matter if you live in the city centre, on the outskirts of town or over in an area such as Barugh Green or Finningley – Sheffield’s dining scene suits all tastes. The city also has a vibrant property market, which could allow you to enjoy your favourite restaurants whenever you want. The Mews, Oughtibridge Valley and our Momentum development in Waverley are two of the best places to start if you’re searching for new build homes in Sheffield.
