Visited here a couple of days into the new year and had not booked, the place was busy but they had space for two of us. The staff were really friendly and pointed out the menu on the walls as per, I opted for the Duck confit with green beans, braised cabbage and potato and parsnip croquettes. My mum opted... More

This lovely bistro was recommended by a local estate agent to my daughter who is studying in Sheffield. We visited on Saturday afternoon as we were up in Sheffield to drop her off. We all liked the atmosphere and decor once inside and the staff were warm and welcoming. My husband also particularly enjoyed the music being played. We ordered... More

Excellent place for a meal. Diverse menu. Good drinks. Great staff. Actually good, tasty food in Sheffield...a nice change! Menus written on boards on multiple walls. Our party had several apps and main dishes. All were excellent. Great place for meeting friends or date night. Not romantic, but social.

So a group of four enjoyed a two course meal with wine and nibbles. We sat at eight thirty and we're served each course quickly. The venison was delicious, the beef brisket very tender. As ever the host was smiling and welcoming. Until at five to ten we were made to feel that we needed to leave. The last Thursday... More

I'm glad your meal was great! I am, however, sorry to hear that your evening ended a bit abruptly - it's certainly not how we'd like our guests to end their meal. I'll pass your comments on to Carl and see if we can improve our communication More

Always an extensive menu. On our latest visit they'd sectioned the blackboard menu into veggie, meat, fish etc which made it less overwhelming to read. Soup starter & bread with oil & houmous starter lovely; chicken & chestnut roast delicious. Always a good wine selection; friendly & helpful service. Casually smart environment. Definitely a place to revisit

We have been many times over the years. However tonight we had a waitress who was unconcerned that I left most of the 'superfood salad' (a stodgy mass of buckwheat & feta, about 15 spinach leaves and none of the promised toasted almonds). Kiddies meal & adult burger were fine. However we ordered a brownie for a child without ice... More

This was our first visit for at least 5 years. The café is still just as good as we remembered it. It has a 'vintage' feel about the place that predates the current fashion for such things. The menu is displayed on several blackboards and is easily read for every seat. It is a little cramped on some tables but... More

Went on Saturday and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. The menu was varied and extensive. I had the rib eye steak cooked to perfection and great value. Four of us had the pudding sharing platter which was one of the best I've ever had. Service was excellent and friendly and we will look forward to going again. No... More
