Experience heart-and-soul filled places to eat & drink...

...in a city that has been declared the UKs foodie hotspot by The Observer Food Monthly.

We think what makes Sheffield a bit different is that in so many places you'll be cooked for, served or greeted by the people who own - and have put their heart and soul into - the individual venues.

Whether you want a pre-theatre cocktail, a cosy elongated afternoon aperitif with some sharing plates, or an inventive and memorable evening menu, Sheffield has got you covered - just don't be shy to have a chat whichever you go to.
