The Chimney House has been the venue for several of my alternative wedding photography workshops now & I have to say it’s been outstanding.

Not only is it just the right combination of functional & funky but the food is awesome, the location is great & they have been magnificent throughout in both contact before the day & helping during the event.

I really can’t say thanks enough.

Ryan Learoyd

We would just like to say thank you for ensuring that our company study trip meal on Friday evening was a success. From arrival (we were running behind schedule!) to the end of the evening the serving staff gave exceptional service.

The food was amazing so credit to the chef. The private room was lovely and fitted in with our function. Both Directors, Peter Cartwright and James Pickard, were very happy with everything on the night.

Thanks again for all your help in organising a successful, fun filled evening.

Dawn - Cartwright Pickard

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team, and the wonderful chefs. It is a fabulous venue and all of our guests were happy.

Sandra Manning, The Housing Forum

I wanted to thank you again for use of the Chimney house which was perfect for our event. We were looking for memorable venues that gave a flavour of each city that we were running an event in. The Chimney house provided exactly the character and feeling of Sheffield’s industrial heritage - and was a relaxing venue for our customers to come and visit us. Booking and organising the day was very straightforward and people are still talking about your delicious cakes! We would certainly look to use the Chimney house if we run any future events in Sheffield.

Jonathan Morgan - Petzl

All was fab at The Chimney House.

Lucy was ‘on call’ all the time – not that we needed her that much as everything was to order and under control. Everyone loved the venue and the quirkiness and the attention to detail. The food was very good and the home made brownies were to die for...

English Institute of Sport

I just want to say thank you for all that you did. The event was a great success and we had so many compliments on the food. You took care of every intricate detail, the service was fantastic, and the place looked incredible on the night. Thank you, thank you!

Claire AMRC with Boeing

What a gorgeous way to chill out and think about nothing but plants! Thanks for the great food and venue.

Miranda Hobson on PLANT

After using the Chimney House to host an inaugural “thought leadership” discussion and dinner earlier this year, we retuned for our second event in November to consider the issues and challenges facing pension scheme members with senior representatives of some of Europe’s largest pension schemes. The combination of the venue, service and style of dining meant the evening was a great success and discussions continued the whole evening – the venue works incredibly well for this style of event and I would not hesitate to recommend it for anyone wanting to host an informal, but very professional, gathering.

Philip, Cosan Consulting

The venue is well presented, urban look and feel with interesting and quirky details. Clean with good facilities. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, helped us to move tables to accommodate our requirements. Were attentive in relation to our needs, didn't interrupt the flow of our meeting. Tea, coffee, water kept refilled along with free chocolate biscuits! The food provided for at lunch was extremely tasty and individual food preferences accounted for. Desserts were delicious. All food was clearly labelled to ensure anyone with intolerances/allergies could easily check if they were able to eat.

Jayne Capita Travel and Events

Thank you to you and the staff for a wonderful evening on Saturday. The staff were really good and kept everyone well supplied- and they didn’t rush us off. Everyone enjoyed the food and the location.

Joy Bermingham

We got some great feedback and people loved the venue. They were very accommodating and helpful so it was very enjoyable. We even had candles to give a better atmosphere on a damp, miserable April day.

Claire, Shoosmiths

Perhaps the best sandwiches ever to be had on a shoot and a lovely location, really helpful staff and the results were a really good interview with Jess Ennis-Hill. Will definitely be recommending The Chimney House to colleagues filming in Sheffield in the future.

Alec Webb, BBC

I love EVERYTHING about this place. The people, the setting, the decor. Thank you! 

Steve Wynne, Pretzel TV - Children's Media Conference Supper

We booked the Chimney House for a photoshoot with Jessica Ennis-Hill. The main space was great, very easy to set up our backdrops and it offered nice backgrounds of its own. We used the smaller room for our interview and hair/make up space. The lunch provided was fantastic, probably the best I've had on any location.

John Mahood - Sport Magazine

Conveniently situated near Sheffield centre and the train station. The venue provided us with a quirky, fun and modern take on a historic Sheffield.  Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Perfect for any event, meeting or shoot. And amazing sarnies! 

Alex Ridley, YOU Magazine - Jessica Ennis Hill Photoshoot

The Chimney House was a really great filming location with a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, Kirstin and Sally were a joy to deal with.  I’ll definitely pass on your details to my colleagues if they’re looking for a location in Sheffield. Many thanks.

Tanya Severn, Panorama, BBC

We needed a venue for a creative meeting of some of the UK’s top film producers. Couldn’t be run of the mill, had to be inspiring. Until we discovered The Chimney House, we would have said it wasn’t possible in Sheffield. Amazing space, wonderful hosts – a great day!

Niall Shamma, Finance Director, Warp Films Ltd
