British, Modern Restaurants in Sheffield
1. Silversmiths British, Modern restaurant in Sheffield 111 Arundel St - S1
2019 Review: “One of Sheffield’s old industrial spaces, converted into a comfortable restaurant with quirky style”, and going like a dream since the then ‘Runaway Girl’ featured on Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares in 2008; “they have a nicely considered menu with some interesting (Yorks-centric) choices”, and the fishcakes are a “classic well worth trying”.
2. Joro Scandinavian restaurant in Sheffield 294 Shalesmoor - S3
“Such a great addition to the Sheffield scene” – Luke French & Stacey Sherwood-French’s “extraordinary conversion of a shipping container” provides some “outstanding” cuisine with its selection of ‘hyper-seasonal’ small plates, available also as part of ten-course (£65) or twelve-course (£75) tasting menus: “the food’s so exciting… the opposite of style over substance”.
3. The Milestone British, Modern restaurant in Kelham Island 84 Green Lane At Ball Street - S3
2019 Review: A “lovely, friendly dining pub in a gentrifying part of Sheffield’s old industrial centre”; “they’re unafraid of strong, punchy flavour combinations,” and the locally sourced food can be “splendid” at times. (Owners The Milestone Group launched a vast 14,000 sq ft food hall inspired by SE Asia’s hawker markets, in the Rutland Cutlery Works, in November 2018).
4. Rafters British, Modern restaurant in Sheffield 220 Oakbrook Rd, Nether Grn - S11
“Still one of the best”, Tom Lawson & Alistair Myers’s ambitious, small upstairs dining room, ten minutes from the city-centre (and named for its main architectural features) is a “Sheffield gem” combining “excellent service” with “brilliant” modern British cuisine. “The ‘Experience’ label (used to describe its more elaborate weekend menus) is a tad pretentious”, but that’s the only complaint.
5. The Old Vicarage British, Modern restaurant in Ridgeway Village
2018 Review: Tessa Bramley’s comfortable Victorian country house dining room has been an edge-of-town fixture for over 30 years – and, despite up-and-down reports on the service and cooking fronts in recent years, won consistent praise this year for “exceptional food in a lovely environment”. It’s had a recent makeover too.
6. The Cricket Inn British, Modern restaurant in Sheffield Penny Ln - S17
Classic pub dishes are supplemented by more unusual specials from chef/partner Richard Smith at this inn on the edge of the Peak District – with ‘Bertha’, a British-made indoor charcoal oven, put to good use. “Great beers” from local craft brewers Thornbridge – partners in the pub – complete the picture.
