Little Mesters, Sheffield

A Living Social coupon led us to Little Mesters, Kelham Island in Sheffield for Sunday dinner.

Lovely starters, I had mushroom bruschetta, his nibs had the spicy parsnip soup.


Yorkshire puds with onion gravy came as an inter-course extra…

On to the mains – I went with the vegetarian option, fig tartin with all the extras, his nibs had the roast pork.



This was a bistro-style meal so we’d expected tiny portions but these were a perfect size, tasty and not over-filling. Very good.


Green City Coffee, Kelham Island, Sheffield

A Dealmonster deal took us to Green City Coffee on Sheffield’s industrial historical Kelham Island for brunch.

Despite the historic surroundings, this cafe is in a modern building, but creates it’s own character.

My companion and I both had the full English – his with meat, mine the vegetarian version. Both were substantial and tasty, complemented with a lovely pot of tea for two. Recommended.



Zanzibar, Sheffield

We went to Zanzibar this evening, an African/Caribbean restaurant.

I’ve had a Living Social coupon for this for some time but is was always impossible to get a reservation. We finally managed to book this about a month ago.


Starters were so-so. I had a soup, his-nibs had garlic toast and a tiny salad.

For main course, I had Vegetarian Curry whilst he had Jerk Chicken. Along with two small bowls of rice – one called rice and peas but was, in fact, rice and kidney beans.

The curry can only be described as a bowl of mashed potatoes with no taste and the chicken was mostly bones and not very flavoured.

A disappointment and we won’t be returning.

The Mill Inn, Mungrisdale

A night away in the Lake District and breakfast the following morning at The Mill Inn in Mungrisdale.

As a vegetarian, I feel we are often forgotten at hotel breakfast-time. Often it’s two beans and a mushroom. We like LOTS of food, just not the ‘meaty’ bits. So this was mine….117_0729I had to fill up on toast.

His Nibs was delighted with his breakfast that included bacon, black pudding and a Cumberland Ring sausage.


Seafarers Restaurant, St. Annes

The Seafarers in St. Annes is a great fish and chip shop and attached restaurant. They offer many meal deal coupons through the Deal sites, so worth looking for.

As a vegetarian I don’t have fish, so they offered a Cheese and Onion pie as a replacement. I didn’t eat the gravy as you can never be sure it’s animal-free (I should have asked for curry sauce), so His Nibs let me have his mushy peas….. Two portions of peas, dodgy move…… 🙂
