Private Dining at The Mowbray - October - November 2023

Dine With Us

The understated splendor of the building - both inside and out has made this beautiful setting one of the most sought after urban venues in the region.

We love small but important touches - that all add beauty and ambience to what we do - including our own coffee blend that we use at our inner city cafe - Mow’s to custom artwork for both The Mowbray and The Chimney House - and a bespoke scent for the buildings.

The Mowbray is luxuriously historic with gentle styling and a story behind even the smallest item and touchpoint. The Mowbray way is holistic, intuitive and designed to completely look after every detail for you! 

We spent 3 years restoring this incredible space - originally built in 1889 and are proud to champion restoration, Sheffield craftsmanship, sustainable design and re-purpose of beautiful items throughout our interior which has been applauded and awarded over the years!

'Up On The Roof' you'll find our private first floor terrace for British blooms, complete with a gorgeous outside cocktail bar. Nestled between two buildings with a beautiful view out over the trees and skies of Neepsend - it is perfectly private and the place for all of the fun times! Up On The Roof is also included with each event - the perfect place for drinks and photography! 

A Note on our Menus

All of our menus are prepared in-house by our wonderful chef team! Everything is baked and made fresh on the day from our bread, cakes, cookies and desserts and we pickle, cure, roast and toast the finest ingredients from Sheffield and Yorkshire. 

We work 100% seasonally so sometimes we will need to change ingredients out for what is best and fresh - we’ll let you know if we need to tweak your chosen menu ahead of your event. We also cater for specific dietary requirements - just let us know and we’ll make it happen!

If you’d rather discuss a bespoke menu tailored to your event theme and guests - then we’d love to discuss that with you! 

We love to use as much inspiration from The Mowbray and our sister venue The Chimney House as we can - so you’ll often see ingredients from our garden featuring in our menus!

We also like to take the opportunity to use our open fire, for intense smoky flavours or to make use of other skills such as pie making or specialist breads.

We would be delighted to create a supper club style menu for you, which is ideal for when you really want the feast to be the focal point of your evening or if you are a big fan of The Mowbray supper clubs!

Your supper club menu would be a collection of 8-10 dishes plus a dessert or two.

A Note On Dietary Requirements 

At The Mowbray and The Chimney House we do our best to cater for any allergies or dietary requirements. In order to do this we ask that you provide full and thorough information in advance of your event. 

When compiling this information please ensure your guests provide accurate information about their dietary needs. We need to know whether it is a severe allergy, a medical requirement or a preference so that we can make suitable adjustments. We may not provide a similar alternative where it is a preference, unless this can be catered for within the menu (see 'Plain Food' below). We will presume any dietary information given is correct and take it at face value. Continued...
