Church Street , Sheffield, Yorkshire, S1 1HG

Don’t be deterred by the deceptively unassuming entrance. This Grade II-listed building is one of the most prestigious and talked-about venues in Sheffield. The 500-capacity home of the Hallamshire Company of Cutlers (the only livery hall outside London) celebrates the distinguished face of Sheffield’s steel-making past throughout a series of imposing hallways and grand ballrooms. With a wide sweeping main staircase, marble busts, enormous chandeliers and beautiful wood panelling, its richly decorated rooms create an impressive sense of occasion. The Main Hall is the most atmospheric space, with room for up to 320 guests for dinner, while the Drawing Room, Goodwin Room and Osborn Room can accommodate 150, 50 and 20 delegates for meetings. Located in the centre of the city opposite the cathedral, the hall is easily accessible from the M1. Kudos is a listed caterer at this venue.

33 Cornhill, London, EC3V 3ND

Prime Scottish cuts are matched to an international wine list at this independent City steakhouse. What really helps Silk & Grain stand out in a crowded market is its Mezzanine dining area, suspended above a ground-floor Bar where another house speciality – the barrel-aged cocktail – keeps the atmosphere lively. An exclusive-hire options means groups can gather downstairs before settling in for three-course ‘Feast’ menus up top (chicken, fish and veggie options are all available on request).
