Heading to Sheffield next week for a few days to have a bash at Stanage for the first time.

Staying at Hilton Sheffield, any recommendations for good, quality, cheap (I know, pick two) Italians, or other eateries?

Cheers

Ken

Bonus points for a must do route for up to v.diff leader......(got BMC Stanage guide)

In reply to DefenderKen: There's one at the top of Crookes, bit of a trek from town, but it's friendly and freshly cooked and tasty, will check out the name and phone number when I cycle past it in 20 minutes, so you can ring for prices.

It's a tiny place, and almost worth going just for the friendly atmosphere I think.

"Ask" near Barker's Pool. Nothing especially special but pretty good quality and reasonably priced. Pizzas are awesome. All meals 7-15

Other eateries: Devonshire Cat, so far the best pub food I've had in Sheffield. (Living here 3 years). All meals 7-15, awesome selection of ales. Home made pies are particularly good.

Really though, you should check out the pubs closer to the crags. The Millstone is very decent (try anything with one of their mashed potato options). The Little John in Hathersage is my favourite though, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. Average, dependable, ordinary quality pub food served in massive portions for a reasonable price. (You probably won't finish the mixed grill, but it's worth trying).

Routes: My favorite Stanage route is October Crack (diff). People will say Flying Buttress, but it's horrid really. It's polished so much that it's slippier than most limestone routes. I haven't done much on Stanage but I would definitely recommend October Crack.

In reply to DefenderKen: For a decent independent Italian in the city centre, I'd recommend BB's:

For other cuisines, my top picks would be Cubana on Trippet Lane (authentic Cuban/Brazilian tapas, fantastic atmosphere) and The Rutland Arms (fabulous food and real ales).

Crookes is good for value food, or London Road and Abbeydale Road, its all a bit 'dust and drizzle' near the Hilton.

Best VDiff? - Heaven Crack

Also recommended are Black Hawk Traverse Left, Hollybush Crack.

Flying Buttress is to be avoided, two short pitches separated by an interminable escapable stance figuring out the only crux move.

In reply to DefenderKen: the legendary noodle inn London road. Or dim sum further up for.something smarter. Also the Turkish kebab places on the same street.

Best Indian is mangla.in spital hill service can ne slow but the mutton curry is remarkable.

In reply to alasdair19: Ooh, good choices. The Turkish kebab places (Zeugma) are fantastic, even if a spark from one of the barbecues did land in my handbag last time...! I love the variety of cuisines you get down London Road.

I haven't eaten out in Sheffield for a few years, but London road was the best place to be, a restaurant from just about every nationality.

Dont you have to be a bit careful enjoying a night out near Spital Hill?

This place is well worth a visit. Good drinks selection and superb daily pie menu. Not too far way from the city centre either.

Vitos, Walkley is the best Italian in the town. Routes, do Heaven Crack, Hollybush Crack, Black Hawk Traverse and October Crack and you'll have had a good day out.

I have to disagree with you there.

Part of the charm, mate, part of the charm...

< To the OP > Few pints in the Broadie (unless it's full of worthless wannabes), curry at Spital Hill (echoes of Bradford) and (as has been suggested) Heaven Crack, 'cos it's downright heavenly.

I live 100 yards from Vito's and I've only been once. I had a thoroughly underwhelming pizza and Vito himself failed to even acknowledge my girlfriend's existence, let alone actually speak to her. I had to order on her behalf. What a tit.

He does, however, make quite nice Italian sausages that the butcher next door sells from time to time.

Black Hawk Traverse Left, Heaven Crack then beer and pie in the Broadfield on the way back

In my limited knowledge of Sheffield, that and Zeugma would get my vote easily.

If the plan is beer without pie on the other hand, the Sheaf View is a much nicer pub than the Broadie.

In reply to DefenderKen: If you like Sushi and other Japanese food try Yama - good food and not expensive. It's on London Road.

There's all other food very close to there on London road.

Noodle Inn.

Fish and Chips - at least 2 to chose from.

Baked potato shop.

Pho 68 - chinese restaurant.

ETC ETC

Or the Blake in Walkley. Owned by the same people as the Sheaf View, but with a better whisky selection and a better class of clientele :)

Have to agree with you on the Cricket Inn. Richard Smith is taking over a lot of pubs in Sheffield, and serving trendy burgers on a roof tile with chips on a plank of wood. As my dear old mother-in-law said, 'Haven't they got any f*cking plates?

He has places at Broomhill and Crosspool too. But the worse crime ever is that he seems to have a deal with Thornbridge Breweries, he puts their beer in every pub. Just like the food, it's shite and over priced.

I'll grudingly concede that the Blake is a *slightly* better pub than even the Sheaf. :o{

As the OP is staying at the Hilton (lah-di-dah) it'd probably be more helpful to mention the Kelham Island Tavern and the Fat Cat, an easy walk away from the hotel. (Or an easy stagger back to it.)

+1

Too closely linked to A4E too. I avoid wherever possible.

<shudder> That's why I was careful to say Sheaf View. ;o)
