Located in Sheffield’s revitalised retail quarter, this four-star boutique hotel occupies a Grade II-listed building that was once a boys’ grammar school – take a look at the memorabilia and old photos donated by past pupils. Food centres on the Lounge Bar, where the all-day ‘premtime’ café menu offers a mixed bag of international favourites to suit all palates and pockets. Toasted sandwiches, ciabbatas and light bites such as nachos or chicken Caesar salad give way to the likes of Thai green curry, cottage pie, pizza margherita or chicken in white wine and mushroom sauce. On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (6-9.30pm) there are special all-in ‘surf & turf’ deals – chose a steak or battered cod fillet with sides and a drink for just £20. The hotel also has several private dining rooms for business or pleasure.
