Out of town Sheffield is full of excellent rural restaurants and out of the way eateries. Historical buildings and beautiful Yorkshire countryside awaits as you head away from the city for a relaxing meal that is far removed from the stresses of urban life. A short drive away heading south east out of Sheffield city centre is the delightful Mosborough Hall; a recently refurbished historical building, it houses one of Yorkshire’s finest hotels of which Darcy’s Brasserie and Bar is a part.
Modern style that retains the elegance of the past
This hotel restaurant is set in the old hall and exhibits modern style that retains all the elegance of the past. A regal plum contrasts with the gentle cream background and dark wood sets the colour off perfectly. Contemporary paintings line the walls in a room that is filled with light and affords a tranquil view of the greenery outside.
The a la carte menu changes regularly, with a chef that is keen to promote local produce and highlight seasonal flavours. Being a hotel there is a wide range of food on offer throughout the day but it is the a la carte that showcases the abilities of the kitchen team. Service is friendly yet professional and of the standard one would expect of such an establishment.
A menu of seasonal flavours
You could start with light and well flavoured starters designed to awaken the palate with dishes that could include watercress risotto with shredded duck and sesame crisps or toasted ciabatta with a fricassee of mushrooms in garlic and thyme sauce. There is a selection of salads and pasta dishes such as grilled goat’s cheese salad with toasted walnuts and honey mustard dressing. Following on for main course you could expect to see slow cooked belly pork with blue cheese mash, crisp pancetta and cider braised leeks or maybe a Thai green vegetable curry with steamed rice and toasted coconut naan bread.
Darcy’s Brasserie and Bar also offers a range of chargrilled steaks with a selection of sauce and offers a local cheeseboard for dessert. Also on the dessert menu are delicious items such as dark chocolate tart with orange sorbet and cointreau syrup or warm cinnamon scented apple cake with vanilla ice cream. Open all day, seven days a week, Darcy’s Brasserie and Bar offers a 3 course set menu for £21 which is excellent value especially considering the quality and ambience.
