Thyme Cafe

Boasting a glorious, green garden and industrial-chic decor, Thyme Cafe is a fantastic place for a bite to eat. While Sundays are devoted to the classic roast, the rest of the week you can dive into a menu of internationally flavoured small plates and mains.

Thaikhun Street Buffet Meadowhall

An all-you-can-eat buffet, anyone? Bursting with rich flavours, Thaikhun Street Buffet is a go-to at Meadowhall Shopping Centre, offering a variety of contemporary Thai delicacies like green curry and world-famous kao soi gai at only £19.90 a pop. Made by Thai chefs using only the finest ingredients, this restaurant is perfect for any occasion, from a daytime lunch with the family to an evening feast with buds. And the best part? You can also nab two for £12 cocktails from Sunday to Thursday.


A super fancy restaurant for fine dining in Sheffield, having been featured in the Michelin guide, Rafters is the ultimate special occasion destination. Settle into their Yorkshire tweed-covered dining room to chow down on decadent six-course tasting menus, which showcase British produce and culinary artistry.

Cutlery Works

The largest food hall in the north of England, Cutlery Works is the place to go if you're after some top-notch grub. From sushi and fried chicken, to a choice of pizza or burgers, the Neepsend Lane venue's independent vendors boast some of the best street food around.


After the best Italian restaurants in Sheffield? Kelham Island's Domo is serving up a feast from Sardinia within its beautiful terracotta space.

Otherwise, rooftop sister spot Kelu has you covered.


This amazing choice of Kelham Island restaurants has scooped numerous accolades and critical acclaim since it opened. Specialising in forward-thinking tasting menus, their seasonal ingredients and clever cooking techniques have even earned them a few Michelin nods.


Looking for the best vegetarian and vegan destinations? V OR V is a clever and conscientious eatery in Kelham Island that's serving some of the most delicious small plates. Head over during the week for plant-based delights and biodynamic wines, or join them for a bottomless brunch come Saturday.
