Food is absolutely excellent

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.

Small but beautifully formed. Rafters is a small restaurant on the first floor, accessed by a staircase. The staff are friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. The seating is well padded and comfortable. The food is outstanding. Perfectly cooked and presented it was the best meal I've had in years of travelling the world, eating in hotels and restaurants.

Had a beautiful meal, I have a small appetite so there was ample for me, but my grandson would have liked a little larger meal, although he loved the food, it is his favourite restaurant.

We opted for the tasting menu with paired wines which was excellent. The food was very good and the wine also. The staff were helpful and polite. We will be going back again

Very nice dining experience, food was lovely and tasty. Only left four stars as they forgot to give us any butter for the bread but everybody else got some in the restaurant, and we had to ask several times for some water. Overall we liked it and would eat there again.

For a special occasion Rafters is ideal. It provides an excellent sense of a local restaurant wanting to give a positive experience to diners with the very best of local and seasonal ingredients .
