British, Modern Restaurants in South Yorkshire
1. Losehill House Hotel & Spa British, Modern restaurant in Hope Valley Losehill Lane, Edale Road - S33
“Beautifully presented, tasty food, excellent service and beautiful views” win praise for this characterful hotel in the Peak District National Park. You can choose between a three-course menu for £50 or go the whole hog and have seven courses for £65. It’s also a hit for afternoon tea: “love this place at any time, but you get great vistas from the orangery in the afternoon.”
2. 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.
3. 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”.
4. 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.
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.
7. 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).
9. 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”.
