Sheffield is the fourth largest city in England and a thriving cultural epicentre of music, art and food. Often referred to as the ‘Steel City’, Sheffield has a history rooted in steel production and once produced almost half of Europe’s steel. It’s still a major manufacturer of the metal, a trade that has had a pivotal role in transforming Sheffield into a significant industrial city.
Along with a plethora of museums and galleries, theatres, art festivals and, of course, its own Premier League football team, Sheffield is also the proud owner of an ever-growing restaurant scene. Over the years, it’s seen a wealth of places to eat pop-up all over the city, from big-name chains to small tasting menu restaurants focussed around local and seasonal produce. If you’re planning to book a private dinner, you might like to choose somewhere more well-known in the city centre so that guests can get to your private event easily. But if you’re willing and able to travel, then there are some fantastic places for a group dinner on the outskirts of Sheffield in its beautiful countryside, too.
Or, if you have something more specific in mind, there are plenty of places that cater to a specific cuisine or style. You might like to choose one of Sheffield's vegan restaurants if you’re entertaining plant-based eaters, and you can find a host of amazing Italian restaurants in Sheffield if you’re after a meal that’s guaranteed to please everyone.
