Christmas Time at The Chimney House 2022

Posted 21st April, 5055

The Home of Christmas Feasting

We’d be delighted to welcome you to The Chimney House to celebrate Christmas this year...

Perched on the historic waterways of Kelham Island Sheffield, The Chimney House is the location for joyous celebrations, jolly feasting and fine wining and dining.

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

We are worldwide famous for our love of feasting - perfectly social, exceptionally delicious and always abundant! 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 perfectly dressed for Christmas, with stacks and stacks of candles, our 12ft Christmas tree, and feasting food to impress.

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 can cater for all dietary requirements - just let us know and we’ll make it happen! 

We’ve carefully curated a delicious wine, beer and cocktail line up that matches our menus and makes life super easy for you. Our drinks are beautifully chosen from boutique merchants and specialists doing great stuff in small batches. Ask about our Festive Punch Bowls and indulgent Christmas Cocktail specials!

Simply pre-order with us when you confirm your final numbers.

Hire of The Chimney House is included in the menu prices, which shows price per head.

If you have guests attending who have a nut allergy, we would advise choosing desserts which do not contain nuts, due to the sharing style of our feasts. 

A Note On Dietary Requirements

At The Mowbray and The Chimney House we do our best to cater for any allergies or dietary requirements. In order to do this we ask that you provide full and thorough information in advance of your event.

When compiling this information please ensure your guests provide accurate information about their dietary needs. We need to know whether it is a severe allergy, a medical requirement or a preference so that we can make suitable adjustments. We may not provide a similar alternative where it is a preference, unless this can be catered for within the menu (see 'Plain Food' below). We will presume any dietary information given is correct and take it at face value.
