If the stomach is the way to the heart, then here's some romantic settings

True Loves

True Loves is a wonderful refurb of the old canal arches. Honest, humble and independent, they are a staple with local communities, but love promoting the fantastic produce of Sheffield and broader Yorkshire.


Public is quite simply stunning. Occupying the former gent’s toilet below the grade-1 listed Victorian town hall, Public is a tiny haven of fine drinks and delicious food - or as it was once described: ‘A Wes Anderson train carriage crowbarred in to an old bog’.


Fischer’s Baslow Hall, is a multiple award-winning, individual, stylish, boutique country house hotel and restaurant. An exquisite menu, impeccable service and a prestigious wine list ensure this is a place you won't forget on those special occasions.


Tonco is one of the most friendly restaurants you'll find. Working with big, bold flavours in a really modern and unique way, they offer eclectic sharing plates and fabulous wine.


Since opening in 2016, this urban restaurant influenced by nature, has been busy wowing food critics and customers alike, garnering awards and is consistently ranked amongst the best restaurants in the country via the likes of the The Good Food Guide and Michelin Guide.

Rafters Restaurant

A relaxed 26-seater restaurant tucked away in the leafy suburb of Nethergreen, Rafters has been a mainstay of Sheffield's fine dining scene for nearly 30 years.

The Lost & Found

The Lost & Found is a botanically inspired venue that has taken root on Ecclesall Road. Cocktails, sumptuous food and great decor make this a fab place to get a drink on the way to or from the Botanical Gardens and Endcliffe Park, or hang out for the day in.
