Invited to dinner here by friends who were staying at the hotel and have to say we were very disappointed. We arrived at 9.30 on Saturday night to find a large and quite attractive dining room but with only one couple dining who soon left, leaving us alone. Felt a bit rushed by the waiter keen for us to order as chef was finishing at 10.15. We were presented with some pieces of bread that were certainly not cut recently, while we checked the menu. Last week I ate in one of my favourite restaurants in London and prices here were similar, unfortunately the food was not ! My ham hock terrine was Ok I suppose but not very exciting, main course of belly pork disappointingly arrived with no crackling, though the meat was tender. Veg and potatoes are not included and have to be bought as extras. If invited here again will suggest an alternative !

The Yard restaurant at Sheffield's Mercure St Paul's Hotel is something of a hidden gem. There's a comfortable champagne bar (with good cocktail menu) where you can order a wide range of bar meals and sumptuous Sandwiches, and there's the main restaurant, offering a large menu of modern European flavours and select world wines to match.

We found the service excellent; friendly, helpful and accommodating. Even accompanying nibbles such as a selection of olives and roast almonds were generous in portion.

The cooking was absolutely excellent and it was also not a problem to make the odd substitution on the plate. Presentation was good, the taste and quality of produce better still - for very reasonable prices too, given the generous servings.

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary with family. 3 of us had steaks-sirloin and fillet. All were dreadfully tough. We did tell the waitress who said she would pass the message on. Another guest had the frittata which tasted completely unseasoned and tasteless.
All in all a very disappointing night for what was supposed to be a special occasion. Would have been better going to our usual across the square at Piccolino's for half the price where we know we would have had a delicious, tasty meal.
