Sheffield is a relatively compact city but don’t be deceived, it is thriving economically and is actually the 4th biggest city in England! Home to the world-famous Crucible, the beautiful Winter Gardens and a fine university, Sheffield is going from strength to strength and the cities restaurant scene is growing with it.
There are a few areas synonymous with great restaurants in Sheffield; Ecclesall Road, London Road and several pockets throughout the city centre, such as Leopold Square, are areas of particular culinary interest. The square is a foodie’s heaven with no less than 8 restaurants to choose from in this compact space. You may be familiar with some of the names such as Wagamama’s and Strada but we highly recommend you give Platillo’s Tapas Restaurant and Bar a try!
New world restaurants in Sheffield are rising in popularity thanks to their exotic and delicious selection of cuisines and unique dining experiences. Our top recommendations include Cubana Tapas restaurant which serves up authentic Spanish and Cuban tapas dishes within a lively setting and Zing Vaa, the oldest Chinese restaurant in Sheffield. Tucked away in the middle of the shopping district behind a very unassuming frontage Zing Vaa may be a little tricky to find a first but trust us, it’s worth it!
Taking a step back from the city, the rural areas that surround Sheffield are beautiful. For the most spectacular views and a taste of the countryside head west out of the city towards the Peak District but don’t forget to check out the restaurants on Ecclesall Road along the way. If you have some time to spare why not stop at The Old Vicarage to the south of the city, made famous by head chef and owner Tessa Bramley; celebrity chef and food writer.
