Yorkshire's Independent Restaurant Guide

Our Favourite Places

A handful of years ago I was browsing round the David Mellor Cutlery Factory in Hathersage trying to find something I could afford. If I ever do Supermarket Sweep, this is the place I want to fill my trolley. I’m counting on the fact that when I finally become the kind of person who has matching knives and forks I’ve got the means to purchase. Despite falling in love with Mellor’s iconic Pride Ivory set, I came away with pretty much the cheapest thing in the shop, a guide to Sheffield written by a bunch of designers, a beautiful booklet called Our Favourite Places, which has since been my bible. These guys know the city inside out – if you’re looking for a great vintage shop, the best café or a hint to where the hidden gems might be – this is for you.
