We had a lovely time last night and everyone was very complimentary about the food, venue and service.
Our son and daughter in law held their wedding at the chimney house, stunning food, venue and lovely people.
It was a perfect day and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much to you all!
Helen - Mother of The Groom
It was completely perfect in every way, thank you!
Natalie - Hen Party
Tom and I are so grateful that we got to have our reception at your beautiful venue.
Everything was perfect on the day and the food was amazing! Everyone seems to have really enjoyed the day too.
Cynthia & Tom
What can we say? Thank you so much for making our wedding reception totally fabulous!
Everybody raved over the food and it made a perfect venue and warm hospitality even better. We simply could not have asked for anything more and if we marry each other again, we will certainly come to you for our reception.
Thank you again for all the attention to detail, it made a sparkling difference.
Sue & Dave
It was fantastic, the food was out of this world, and the staff you had on for our wedding, so attentive but laid back and chilled also. Loved it, all the guests complimented the dishes and are wanting to come back for food!
The chimney house looked amazing as we knew it would. We had a magnificent day!
Hayley & Jake
We wanted a small, intimate wedding with our closest family and friends, so the moment we saw the Chimney House we knew if was perfect. Lucy and the team were amazing, everything just happened like magic and we were left to simply enjoy the day while they looked after every detail.
The room was beautifully decorated, the candles and flowers gorgeous, and the light and surroundings just beautiful - you simply couldn't take a bad photo! The food was perfect, and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. Fabulous food served in a way that allows everyone to share and chat as they eat.
Michelle & Simon
We had the most fantastic time at the Chimney House, the venue was perfect for a special meal - with the champagne reception downstairs followed by a plentiful meal in the spacious room upstairs.
Nothing was too much either before, during or after the event, with all dietary requirements catered for with ease. Everyone at the Chimney House made us feel so welcome and made what was already a brilliant celebration completely perfect.
Normally we’re a tough bunch to please, but I’ve had nothing but praise from the 40 guests who attended - ranging from “amazing!” to “awesome party last night, the food was amazing” to “it was perfect, really good night” to “absolutely fantastic”. Couldn’t recommend (or thank) you enough.
Rosemary Kavanagh - Bank House Chambers
I wanted to thank you again for use of the Chimney house which was perfect for our event. We were looking for memorable venues that gave a flavour of each city that we were running an event in. The Chimney house provided exactly the character and feeling of Sheffield’s industrial heritage - and was a relaxing venue for our customers to come and visit us. Booking and organising the day was very straightforward and people are still talking about your delicious cakes! We would certainly look to use the Chimney house if we run any future events in Sheffield.
Jonathan Morgan - Petzl
The Chimney House is a perfect venue and the decoration and attention to detail is sublime. Lucy was fabulous throughout the whole of the planning and made everything so easy. The two Hannah's looked after us so beautifully in the evening and the food was simply awesome. I know there were a team of people working hard that we didn't see that evening and we are very grateful to them all. Everyone of our family and friends said it was the best food they had had in a long long time. I still crave the yorkshire blue, honey and walnuts…. The food was tasteful, plentiful and beautifully presented. I loved the help yourself, family style laden table. Excellent idea.
Sally & Duncan
We really enjoyed the PLANT workshop - so relaxing and really got us to do something experimental and out of our comfort zone! Great food too!
Katie Knappett on PLANT
Thanks again for the hosting us yesterday. Everyone really liked the meeting space and thought it was so much nicer than our usual blank walls! We never have CPD days in Sheffield as a company and I think you have given us reason to have more CPD days in Sheffield now!
Luke Gupta, EIS 2 WIN
The setting of the Chimney House was beautiful! The room was filled with gorgeous autumnal blooms from Swallow and Damsons, and romantically lit with lots of antique candles. All of our guests were able to sit around one table which made it feel just like a big family feast! Every element of it was pure delight and we were able to pair it with wines chosen by ourselves. We can’t thank everyone at the Chimney House enough for making our day so perfect! You gave us the most wonderful wedding day with memories that we will treasure forever!
Katie & James
We can’t put into words how wonderful it was. The Chimney House was our absolute dream venue to to be able to celebrate our wedding there was so amazing.
Anna & Jamie
What a gorgeous way to chill out and think about nothing but plants! Thanks for the great food and venue.
Miranda Hobson on PLANT
After using the Chimney House to host an inaugural “thought leadership” discussion and dinner earlier this year, we retuned for our second event in November to consider the issues and challenges facing pension scheme members with senior representatives of some of Europe’s largest pension schemes. The combination of the venue, service and style of dining meant the evening was a great success and discussions continued the whole evening – the venue works incredibly well for this style of event and I would not hesitate to recommend it for anyone wanting to host an informal, but very professional, gathering.
Philip, Cosan Consulting
Just a quick note from both of us to thank you and your colleagues for making our wedding day so incredible on Saturday! We were over the moon with how everything panned out. The venue looked stunning, the food was beautiful and the hosting second to none. Simply, it was perfect!
Clare & Stephen
We got some great feedback and people loved the venue. They were very accommodating and helpful so it was very enjoyable. We even had candles to give a better atmosphere on a damp, miserable April day.
A fabulously inspiring venue, we achieved great things in your creative and grounding space. We will definitely be running more of our events here. What you have built is beautiful and you are wonderful people to have worked with.
Perhaps the best sandwiches ever to be had on a shoot and a lovely location, really helpful staff and the results were a really good interview with Jess Ennis-Hill. Will definitely be recommending The Chimney House to colleagues filming in Sheffield in the future.
Alec Webb, BBC
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. Sheffield is the city where we fell in love & it represents so much that is important to us... You captured all of that & more, and created so many new memories for us that we will always treasure. You fed us, look after us & smiled with us through an incredibly joyous day. Thank you for your hard work, friendliness & willingness to make everything perfect. With love and heartfelt thanks.
Becky & Gavin
I just wanted to write and express my thanks and gratitude to you and your lovely colleagues for making the wedding day of my daughter, so wonderful! You made everyone feel so welcome, the food, the venue, the warm atmosphere - everything was perfect! (So many of our wedding party said this was one of the loveliest weddings they have attended!) For this, and your professionalism, your total commitment to making our day perfect and your unfaltering kindness & support, I send my heartfelt thanks. You made our day!
Alyson Nevis Edwards
Everything was perfect! It was a lovely venue, beautiful food, and a gorgeous atmosphere. From distinguished professors to diplomats, all of our guests had a wonderful time and are still raving about the evening. The planning process was swift and professional, too. From start to finish, Kirstin and her team at the Chimney House did a fantastic job. I will be back and have encouraged friends and colleagues to book for future events.
Genevieve, University of Sheffield
We needed a venue for a creative meeting of some of the UK’s top film producers. Couldn’t be run of the mill, had to be inspiring. Until we discovered The Chimney House, we would have said it wasn’t possible in Sheffield. Amazing space, wonderful hosts – a great day!
Niall Shamma, Finance Director, Warp Films Ltd
The Chimney House is one of the best locations I have found for a training location. The unique setting along with the passionate and professional team helped to make my day exceptional. The feedback I had from my delegates was also incredibly positive and you don't get this when using normal meeting rooms in a hotel. I wish had the same venue in London as there is nothing that comes close.
The Mowbray is the sister venue to The Chimney House and is a popular private events space for 15 - 200+ guests. An affordable daily conference and meeting space and a unique Sheffield wedding venue housed in an iconic building restored from 1889. Our aim is to inspire you with hospitality, great food, drink, architecture and design for all of your daily meetings, private dining and life celebrations.
A short walk alongside the waterways of the River Don connects The Mowbray in Neepsend and The Chimney House in Kelham Island.
