Served in plentitude on our feasting tables - expect a visual delight as well as a taste sensation! The Kitchen is at the heart and soul of The Mowbray. We have developed our own feasting style - ‘Grand Dining’ - that suits every occasion from when the sun rises until the stars come out, we’ve got it covered. Think breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, secret suppers and dinner. We are proud champions of local and regional ingredients and forage, bake, make, cure, pickle and preserve our way through each month and season.

"The feasting style of our menus allows us to think just about what is delicious, rather than what will look good on a plate together to be analysed and explained. The meal is totally about the ingredients and doing the best with them individually, then presenting them as a whole for our guests to enjoy at their leisure."

A real all-day sun trap - it is an excellent Summer hide-out - and always a beautiful space for drinks, photography and some good Sheffield air!

A Tale of Two Houses

We own two of the most striking and iconic Sheffield buildings in the City. Both The Chimney House and The Mowbray are steeped in history and have been restored by our award winning design team 93ft. We are proud to be able to offer you the luxury of using both spaces together or individually. A short walk alongside the waterways of the River Don connects The Mowbray in Neepsend and The Chimney House perched on the water’s edge on Kelham Island.
