Restaurant description

With 2 AA Rosettes and highly praised in the Michelin Restaurant Guide and Waitrose Good Food Guide, Rafters Restaurant is one of Sheffield's finest eateries. Inventive recipes from across Europe are served in a stylish setting with exposed brick walls and an intimate ambience.

The Rafters Restaurant menu has been painstakingly prepared to showcase bold, inventive flair from the chefs. A signature breadbox of sourdough, granary and treacle loaves comes with home-churned butter, while delicate starters include crab agnolotti with courgette and lemon oil in a light bisque. There is tender English rose veal with Jersey royals in a burnt leek emulsion, as well as vegetarian recipes such as Yukon Gold potato gnocchi with barrel-aged feta.

Classic British flavours can be found on the Rafters Restaurant Sheffield dessert menu, as seen in the English strawberries with elderflower, cucumber and basil, and the baked duck egg custard with blackcurrant and apple. There is a full wine list served, with staff on hand to give expert pairing recommendations.

A wonderfully approachable slice of fine dining, Rafters Restaurants sits a 14-minute drive from Sheffield Rail Station.

    The food and service were exceptional throughout. The pre-starter snacks were delicious and the pre-dessert was inspired. I particularly liked the take home breakfast granola and coffee in the gift bag. If I was to be super critical, the dessert was perhaps too large for the level of richness and the time slot felt quite limited; we were about to ask for the bill as the next booking arrived which was fine, but if we’d been slightly slower an awkward overlap would have ensued. Regardless, I’ll definitely return again!

    A lovely cosy restaurant with good food and friendly staff. The gnocci was particularly good. I felt the wine was a little over priced.

    From the moment we walked in to the second we left we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are polite and attentive, the food is outstanding with wonderful presentation and incredible flavours. The hand written Anniversary card was a lovely touch and the final course was nice touch. Rafters will make any occasion special.
