Afternoons at The Chimney House

Posted 21st April, 2054

Afternoons at The Chimney House

Perched on the historic waterways of Kelham Island Sheffield, The Chimney House is the location for joyous celebrations for friends and family togetherness. We love hosting baby showers, hen parties and all of life’s great times! 

 Fall in love with a Chimney House celebration. The flicker of candlelight, the bubbles of champers, we plan, arrange, style and host most fabulous parties with a difference, perfect dining experiences and the most glorious celebrations imaginable!

Get caught up in our joy and revel in the delight of having your event planned to perfection. We will host your guests in the ambiently beautiful surrounds of our historic building, with stacks and stacks of candles. Celebrate under our beams and amongst antiquities and curiosities... 

We can also help you organise fun things to do for your afternoon … Get creative with flower crown workshops or even life drawing classes! Workshops or classes will be a separate charge on top of The Chimney House menu - and will be hosted by an expert - something to consider to help your afternoon go beautifully! 

Taking The Twee Out Of Afternoon Tea

We have been hosting gorgeous afternoons at The Chimney House for over a decade and along the way we’ve moved on from quavering tea stands, fine china and teeny, tiny sandwiches to find and perfect our perfect afternoon food. We’ve always embraced the idea of social feasting - which in our book is the best way to eat - especially when everyone around the table might not know each other - it’s the best way to get chatting over a good slice of cake!

We are famed for our grand feasts with a focus on good ingredients, where flavour is key. We use local where possible, and seasonal when it’s best. 

Hello High Tea

High Tea is a substantial and somewhat more casual affair.  We’re all about plates, platters and bowls brimming with fresh ingredients and great bakes. Our whole ethos of eating is sharing and passing, building your own perfect plate of food, and going back for seconds. Our new High Tea menu is quintessentially us, all handmade made by us. 

Made by The Mowbray Kitchen

Handmade doughnuts, pastel de nata with our own orange blossom custard and all butter pastry. Our guests will always share a side of our home cured & hot smoked salmon, house pickled dill cucumbers & freshly baked focaccia. It’s important to us to make High Tea just as delicious & authentic as any of our other feasts.

Let us Look After You

Our chefs will put a completely unique menu together for you - you don’t need to make any choices, we just need to know any dietary requirements and we’ll put out a perfect spread. Our feasting table will be set up for your guests, drinks and savouries served. For pudding we will set up a beautifully styled pudding table for you to help yourself to. We’ll be on hand for anything you need.

The Chimney House High Tea £40pp (excluding vat) £48pp (including vat) (including 3 hours exclusive hire of The Chimney House)

The menu price also includes 3 hours private use of The Chimney House with our lovely team to take good care of you. We’ll naturally take care of any dietary requirements as well.

A few comments from some of our recent celebrations, and more testimonials here...

 “Can we say a huge thank you for looking after us at my father’s birthday on the 17th of May.

The food was fantastic, the venue perfect and the hospitality wonderful.

My parents have not stopped talking about it and the whole family had a wonderful and memorable night. Thank you so much!”

Mike Holton.

“The Chimney House was the perfect venue for getting all our family together...  From the moment we first visited, we just knew that no where else would compare.  Everyone fell in love with the venue which was truly special and unique.  The service, the food and the beautiful decorations were all outstanding. They even included my mum's favourite flowers in the table decorations which she noticed straight away.  We didn't have to worry about anything except to turn up and enjoy ourselves.  We can't praise it or recommend it enough because it really was just the most perfect evening”

Sarah Moga.
