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.

We visited here for our Wedding Anniversary and from the time we entered to leaving the experience was second to none. The staff were all very friendly and were very efficient. We had the eight course tasting menu £60 pp with a lovely bottle of red. The food was absoloutely fantastic and out of the whole eight courses there was only one dish I didn't like, this was some kind of goats cheese with a fruity side didn't like the flavours together. Will defo visit again this gem of a place is wonderful.

Excellent evening, as usual. Taster menu out of this world, as usual, Staff polite without being overbearing, They knew exactly what they were doing and what they were serving. Cannot pick a favourite dish out of the taster menu, they were all superb.

Loved this restaurant! The standard of the food and service was excellent. The staff were very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The menu would suit most tastes. It's only a small restaurant but the setting is lovely. Would highly recommend it. Looking forward to returning. Sheffield needs more of this standard of service and restaurant.

Excellent refurb since we last went under the previous owners. We decided on a la carte menu instead of tasting menu. Food was excellent and imaginative, with plentiful bread and extra courses making up for the small portions. The things probably outside the main chefs remit were less impressive - the house wine didn't amaze us, the bread was of just two types and the cheese course was basic (bordering on poor) and not worth the extra supplement. The cheese was a bit of soft cheese like Brie, a small chunk of hard cheese a bit like Cheddar and some Stilton. There were no cheese that I would call imaginative choices and the quantity was poor.
Service was timed just right, perhaps a little stiff and formal (yet still friendly) compared to the relaxed ambience of some of the 1 and 2 Michelin star establishments we have dined at such as Gleneagles and Whatley Manor. We're not sure people want that formality nowadays but it was only a hint of over formality, not excessive.
We paid £150 for two of us and enjoyed the night, which was half a bottle of wine and 3 more alcoholic drinks with the al la carte menu and two optional extras. Overall we would return, but at the price it has to be just for a special occasion.

We had the taster menu and the wine flight. Both were fantastic. Among the top 3 best meals we have ever had. The flavours were intense and exquisite. Venue and staff perfectly charming.
