It's Review Time!
Sheffield's bible to all things great and happening in our City - Exposed Magazine called into see us for The French Ciné Supper Club for an evening of French feasting and la belle vie...
They Gave Us A Top Recommendation
"When it comes to atmospheric evening dining, The Mowbray’s popular supper clubs are one of the city’s finest and most immersive foodie experiences in the city."
Here's What They Said
"If you've not tried a Supper Club at the The Mowbray, you're seriously missing out on one of the best dining experiences in Sheffield."
"It’s Friday evening in Kelham Island, and on Mowbray Street, set back a few hundred yards from the area’s bustling watering holes, a steady stream of people can be seen tottering down towards the chapel-like silhouette of The Mowbray.
Despite its appearance, this historic red-brick structure was originally an iron and steel merchants built in 1889. After being purchased by the team behind nearby events space Chimney House, a three-year refurbishment effort has seen transformed into a stunning venue hosting everything from weddings to exhibitions to fine-dining events.
Tonight sees the return of their themed Supper Club evenings, this one an opulent French Ciné special, and inside the main room four grand dining tables illuminated by dancing candelight are lined up as guests nibble at freshly baked baguettes lathered in lescure butter and crème de Reblochon. The sounds of Françoise Hardy and Jacques Dutronc add to this chic, inviting setting, while segments of classic French cinema are projected onto the walls.
"It’s an enjoyably social affair with an atmosphere you’ll struggle to replicate in even the priciest restaurant in town: an elegant banquet where people are united in affection for quality cuisine and an indulgent evening out."
We helped ourselves to hearty servings of sweet French onion tart, incredibly succulent Beef Bourguignon and the most decadent of Mille-feuilles. Time seemed to fly by (the age-old sign of an enjoyable evening) and three hours quickly passed before a number of contentedly full diners began leaving their seats to make the nearby pubs before closing time.
Une bonne soiree, indeed, and one highly recommended for those seeking a special communal dining experience."
