Weekend in Sheffield

Weekend trips within the UK is something I don’t do enough so I decided to visit my friend Nikki who lives in Sheffield.

I took the bus up on Saturday morning and arrived in Sheffield by midday. We had lunch at Oisoi as I felt like Asian food and we were both surprised that the dumplings, cheung fun and the Singapore vermicelli noodles were great. The highlight was also their matcha buns which were custard filled.

Afterwards, we went for a walk around the city centre, then to Ecclesall Road which is a bustling stretch of restaurants, coffee houses, pubs, bars and shops (especially at night). We then walked around Endcliffe Park and enjoyed the autumn colours and the fantastic, sunny weather.

Afterwards, we went to Steam Yard for their delicious filled cookies.

We went to The Milestone which is a gastro pub for dinner. We shared the cured salmon, crispy pig cheek croquetas as entrees and the duck breast and lamb loin as mains. We also had a glass of white wine and bottle of red wine. For dessert, we shared the blackberry frozen mousse and chilled chocolate fondant.

We went  towards Leopold Square and went to Bamboo Door, tiki cocktail bar for some cocktails. Afterwards, we went to Kuckoo Rocks for another drink.

The next morning, we caught the train to Grindleford which is in the Peak District. We went for a nice stroll for around 10km around the area. It was fairly mudly and at one point, I did fall one leg knee depth into mud. It was hilarious!

We went to The Fox House for a well deserved Sunday roast lunch. I had the beef and beef short ribs which was really delicious and hearty.

We took the train back to Sheffield and stopped by at Steam Yard again and got two doughnuts and the cookie again.

Sheffield was a great place to visit as it’s close to nature and the Peak District. It was especially better as I had a friend to show me around and explore with.
