Private Dining at The Chimney House - Winter 2021

Posted 26th July, 4770

The Home of Feasting

Perched on the historic waterways of Kelham Island Sheffield, The Chimney House is the location for joyous feasting celebrations of friends and family togetherness for up to 50 guests. 

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 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 amongst antiquities and curiosities.

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.

Let's Feast!

Although the berries & fresh spring veggies from spring and summer have now finished, this time of year is still great for British produce. Hearty & wholesome root veg, greens and winter fruits are abundant. We have preserved & pickled some of the summer’s harvest, we make use of year-round produce and indulge in spices from further afield. We are delighted to use chicken, lamb & beef raised in Yorkshire & Derbyshire on our menus, working with our butchers to ensure best quality.

The below are sample menus - ingredient led typically from October through to the early part of the year. We usually work in a 3 month seasonality window in terms of ingredients.

The Chimney House Pudding Menu

This is our current selection of seasonal puds for The Chimney House, but if you have any of your own ideas or requests, let us know and we’ll see what we can do to achieve pud perfection.
If your menu choice means you can choose two puds (lucky you) then we’d suggest a tart and a pav, we also have our brilliant cheese courses below!

Served up sliced for you to share…

Blackcurrant Jam Bakewell with Clotted Cream (v, g) contains nuts
Hazelnut Treacle Tart with Lightly Whipped Yoghurt Cream (v, g) (contains nuts)
Dark Chocolate Torte with Morello Cherries & Amaretto Cream (v, g)

Favourites to share
These puds are served up in a dish for your guests to share with their table:

Bread & butter pudding, glazed with marmalade. Served with vanilla creme fraiche (v, g)
Mowbray Tiramisu made with fresh coffee & rich mascarpone, served in a dish, to share for the table (v, g)

Cocoa meringue, topped with hazelnut cream, pears & salted caramel sauce - this is our favourite! (v)

(v)=vegetarian  (g)= contains gluten

Dietaries & Allergies: Some of our desserts can be made without gluten, on request - please ask. If you have vegan guests, or those who do not eat dairy or egg, the kitchen will make them their own dessert which is similar to your choice of pudding. 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.


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.”
