A Note on our Menus
All of our menus are prepared in-house by our amazing 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! If you’d rather discuss a bespoke menu tailored to your event theme and guests - then we’d love to discuss that with you!
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 and makes life super easy for you. Our drinks are beautifully chosen from boutique merchants and specialists doing great stuff in small batches.
Simply pre-order with us when you confirm your final numbers and we’ll make sure that your wine and beer is served up perfectly for you to enjoy.
Hire of The Chimney House is included in the menu prices, which show price per head.

Our cheese courses are a BRILLIANT choice if you need to choose a second dessert! They can also be added to your menu for £6pp ex VAT. We’ll serve your cheese course with biscuits. Choose one option from below
Creamy Yorkshire Blue with Toasted Walnuts & Wildflower Honey
About this cheese: A mild & creamy blue cheese, made from Yorkshire Cow’s Milk by the girls at Shepherd’s Purse in North Yorkshire.
Mowbray-made Ricotta with Sweet Pickled Cherries
Our house-made ricotta is made from milk & cream, and hung overnight at The Mowbray to produce a deliciously creamy soft cheese. Our cherries are pickled with sweet wine, thyme & star anise.
Tunworth & Roasted Grapes
Hampshire’s answer to Camembert, and don’t tell the French, but we think it’s even better. This cheese is still lovingly made by hand and offers a long lasting sweet & nutty flavour. The roasted grapes help to cut through the richness.
*please note the cheese course must be taken by the whole party

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.”
