Sheffield is perhaps best known for its rich industrial heritage and student population – however, the city stands for a lot more than that. With a fascinating assortment of independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, there’s plenty of food and drink to experience in Sheffield – any night of the week.
From street food markets and pop-up restaurants to craft beer, cocktails and some of the best coffee in the North. Industrial history is celebrated across the city – not just in Sheffield’s museums and galleries – but in its buildings. Buildings that once stood as steel factories and cutlery works have been repurposed as restaurants, cafes and bars.
Once the beating heart of the steel industry, Kelham Island has undergone a renovation in recent years. You’ll find many of Sheffield’s top eateries occupying spaces here: Cutlery Works, Depot Bakery and Jöro. Additionally, Peddler hosts a special monthly event on the first weekend of the month: top-notch street food, accompanied by live music and exhibitions.
A city at the forefront of the British brewing scene, there are lots of great places to drink in Sheffield too. With some of the best beer gardens in the country, head out to one of the city’s many rustic pubs and unique bars; saunter down to Picture House Social’s cheerful beer garden in the summer for cocktails and craft beer.
Check out the food and drink scene in Sheffield and you’ll be richly rewarded with cool coffee shops, artisan cafes, delicious street food and innovative fine dining, drawing on cuisine from all continents.
