This award-winning boutique hotel is home to a Michelin-listed restaurant. Described as a ‘neighbourhood kitchen’, it’s a welcoming spot set in an Edwardian villa by the park offering a stylish dining experience. The menus here include breakfast, small plates and afternoon tea (as well as a great Sunday lunch), and a ‘little birdies’ menu ensures there’s something for the kids. If you’re a larger party, their special Brocco Banquet menu includes nibbles, starters, mains, sides and desserts, and is all served sharing style.

Brunch, lunch, comfort food and cocktails are on offer at The Furnace, where industrial heritage meets modern design in the heart of the city of Sheffield. The outdoor terrace is a great spot for a summer lunch and it’s dog-friendly too. There’s plenty of Yorkshire produce on the varied menu here – don’t miss their hanging kebabs and burgers. This is a particularly good brunch spot (order the buttermilk fried chicken waffle and thank us later).

Michelin-listed Jöro takes a forward-thinking approach to modern dining. A simple but cool spot which sits in a stack of shipping containers, head here for British and Scandinavian-influenced tasting menus featuring unique flavour combinations (we love the sound of the BBQ hand-dived Orkney scallop in beef fat and scallop dashi).

Mowgli serves up Indian street food dishes that are packed with flavour, and their Sheffield outpost is no exception. Think gunpowder chicken, green ginger and rhubarb dahl and Goan fish curry. Their tiffin boxes form a food roulette – four tiers of meat, veg and carb chosen by the chef for you to sample.

They do dolce pizzas here too, with sweet bases including Nutella or Biscoff, plus toppings ranging from banana to Kinder Bueno.

Dining at Silversmiths promises a taste of Yorkshire. It offers vibrant dishes with a local focus, from braised duck leg to surf ’n’ turf. Celebrating?
