A Note on our Menus
All of our menus are prepared in-house by our in-house chef team. Everything is baked and made fresh from our bread, cakes, cookies and desserts and we pickle, cure, roast and toast the finest ingredients from Sheffield and Yorkshire.
We work 100% seasonally so sometimes we will need to change ingredients out for what is best and fresh - we’ll let you know if we need to tweak your chosen menu ahead of your event.
We love to use as much inspiration from The Chimney House and our sister venue The Mowbray - so you’ll often see ingredients from our garden featuring in our menus!
We’ve carefully curated a delicious wine and beer line up that matches our menus. Our drinks are beautifully chosen from boutique merchants and specialists doing great stuff in small batches. Plus we have the perfect cocktail selection to see you through from arrivals to nightcaps.
Simply pre-order with us when you confirm your final numbers and we’ll make sure that your cocktails, wine and beer is served up perfectly for you to enjoy.

A Recent Testimonial
“My gorgeous wife was approaching a big birthday and the family decided we should celebrate in style.
My daughter thought best to relieve me of any organisational responsibilities and instead took up with the Chimney House.
The Chimney House itself is in a lovely part of Kelham Island - bustling, fun and slightly trendy. The room with low beams, bare bricked walls and long oak tables perfectly suited a long, gentle afternoon with gorgeous food and 30 wonderful, if loud, friends and family.
And what food.
The lamb was slow cooked in Persian spices and was adoringly complemented by crispy salads, aromatic vegetables and warm flat breads to die for. For those with any spare room, the deserts were just perfect. The Chimney House matched the food with outstanding wines. An afternoon to remember forever.”
