It’s the greenest city in the UK and if it wasn’t for their factories we’d be eating our meals with our hands rather than with stainless steel knives, forks, spoons and sporks. Here’s our guide on where to get some top scran in Sheffield. With the Sheffield Food Festival kicking off on June 1st, what better time to sample the City’s brightest and best?
The Milestone, 84 Green Lane at Ball Street, Sheffield, S3 8SE
The guys at The Milestone know their way round a pig better than Kermit the Frog. Claiming the prize of Sheffield’s ‘first true gastro pub’, The Milestone is the only new Yorkshire entry in the 2010 Michelin guide. The restaurant showcases the very best produce Yorkshire has to offer alongside innovative creations such as their Dill Martini. It’s open 7-10pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Montagu’s, Halifax Road, Wortley, Sheffield, S35 7DB
Another local favourite banging the drum for regional produce, Montagu’s at The Wortley Arms was a runner-up in 2009’s Eat Sheffield restaurant awards. Chef Andy Gabbitas has created winning dishes like halibut and crab pudding and wild mushrooms on brioche. Highly recommended.
Dosanj, West One, The Plaza, Fitzwilliam Street, Sheffield, S1 4JB
For something a little different, this plucky newcomer has swiftly become Sheffield’s main destination for Indian food and is picking up new fans daily. As well as a traditional menu done very well, Dosanj really comes into its own with its fish specialities, roping calamari, lobster, scallops, crab and more into their mindblowing signature dishes.
