Fahrenheit Bar & Grill

Right, it’s been over a week. I’m no longer too full to write about this feast. Seriously, it was a whopper. As I  start writing this, I’m on the crosstrainer at the gym, still trying to repent after last Wednesday’s epic tea. I’ll start by confessing that, despite passing Fahrenheit at least twice a day en route to/from…

Afternoon tea at Marco’s New York Italian 

I recently had something terrible happen to me. Well, to be honest, I let something terrible happen to me: I let £50 of Compliments vouchers, which I’d earmarked for spending in John Lewis, expire. Now, I don’t know about you, but gift vouchers to me are like being given free money to spend on things…

The Talbot

There’s a new entry on my list of favourite spots for good pub food. And it caught me unawares. When an email landed in my inbox inviting me to come check out The Talbot, a local pub that’s recently undergone a big change of culinary direction, I was intrigued. It’s not a pub I’d been to before,…

Thyme Café

After Storm Abigail and before Storm Barney hits various parts of the country, we had a miserably wet weekend. This also coincided with a visit from my sister and our five-year-old nephew. When we have visitors to Sheffield of a weekend (we don’t have any family in the city), we often make our plans based on being outdoors…

The Forum Café Bar: new menu

I was recently invited to The Forum to try out some dishes from their new winter menu. I must confess, I’d not been to The Forum in aaaages. I think my subconscious blocks it out because in my student days, I lived at Victoria Hall, directly behind The Forum. So I spent plenty of time…

Forgotten Cuts at Regather

I’m just curled up at home, watching through parted fingers as Vana, Joseph and the other candidates on The Apprentice make a right pig’s ear of this week’s task. This time last week, I was also thinking about pig’s ears, heads, liver and much more… You see, I spent last Wednesday night pigging out, quite…

Girl Eats London

Earlier this year, we had a long weekend in that there London, to celebrate our second wedding anniversary, catch up with friends and just eat, drink and be generally merry. It was the sort of weekend where you forget that the rest of your life even exists and are just totally immersed in every moment. It…

Lucky Fox

Y’know those days when you’re just really craving fried chicken, waffles, maple syrup and cinnamon butter? No, I never used to either- but, trust me: once you’ve been to Lucky Fox, you’ll get it. Lucky Fox opened in September, on a stretch of Division Street that I must confess to not previously paying loads of…

Sheffield Beer Week

Clear your diaries for the week ahead, beer fans. There’s a new event in town and you’re going to love it: Sheffield Beer Week. It starts tomorrow and runs until Sunday 22 March.   Next weekend, the Society of Independent Brewers’ (SIBA) BeerX festival returns to Sheffield for the third year running. Beer lovers Julia…

Spoon

You need to know how brilliant Spoon is. We moved house in late 2014 and now live approximately one minute from Spoon, so now it’s more than just a great local restaurant- it’s my great local restaurant. Spoon’s been around for three years but, I must confess, I’d never stepped foot in it until my move to…

Napoleons Casino & Restaurant

Casinos are a bit odd aren’t they? I’d never stepped foot in one until about two years ago. I really wanted it to be all James Bond glamour and thrills, full of mysterious men in black tie and women with glossy locks in floor-length frocks.  In reality, it was full of people who look kind of like me- but…

Private dining at Fancie

Because I like to keep busy, as well as my day job and this blog, I’m also on the committee of a social group in Sheffield, organising monthly events for our members. We love a nice foodie do so, for last month’s night out, we decided we’d try out private dining at Fancie. I got in touch…
