PLACES | The Mowbray

Hey how are you all doing?!

This is a fairly quick post I’ve jiggled together on a Tuesday afternoon as I wanted to show you a fabulous new venue that’s recently opened its doors in Sheffield .

Its visually a delightful post.

I was lucky enough to be invited along to #LOVE event which was held at The Mowbray on Sunday.

If you are looking to get married or need a space to host a meeting or an event then this could well be the place you have been looking for.

The Mowbray is based on Mowbray Street, which is in the Neepsend area of Sheffield. It was built in 1889 and over the last 3 years has lovingly been restored. Its owned by the same team that have the Chimney House , which regular readers will know I fell in love with at the Viking Stationary event I attended. [ You can read about that HERE ]

Basically I wanted to move in and the same can be said for The Mowbray.

It has a similar feel to The Chimney House but it is a lot larger catering for 200+ people. It is open plan with high ceilings, ‘that’ stunning feature light, a bar at the far end of the room and a roof terrace. If rustic industrial was a ‘thing’ then this would be it.

Introducing – Turtle Bay to Sheffield

At the end of May I got invited along to the press night of the newest ‘eating and drinking spot’ to hit Sheffield – Turtle Bay on Holly Street, which is next to the City Hall. Turtle Bay is a chain of Caribbean restaurants that are scattered all around the country.

It was a great evening, spent with lots of fellow bloggers; drinking rum cocktails and sampling the food. I did come away slightly deaf as the live band where extremely loud. I found myself shouting to get heard on more than one occasion .

Ey’ up it’s ‘Nana Tracey’ here!

Ladies that Lunch | The Florentine , Sheffield

Date night last week was spent feasting on a fabulous 3-course meal in this beautiful corner of the Florentine Pub…

We had a lovely meal and I’ve been meaning to write this review up for the past few days … but you know sunshine. I’ve been more or less laid horizontal for the past few days in the back garden and you know what it’s been really rather nice.

We are back to drizzle in Sheffield, so here I am … like Arnie.

Ladies that Lunch | Terrace and Birthday Treats at Tapas Revolution

What better way to spend a balmy evening in Sheffield other than eating and drinking in the sunshine with one of your best mates. You have to agree there is nothing finer.

Well …. maybe if I substituted Rach for Bradley Cooper … no offence intended Rach but a girl can dream!

First off however I have to admit I did think we would be sitting outside. When the invite read ‘come and visit the new Mediterranean terrace and help us celebrate our second birthday ‘ I just envisaged it would be external. It isn’t.

The new terrace is actually inside, situated on the top level of the food court in Meadowhall where it has been for the past 2 years but it’s changed slightly. Same space, different place. The terrace is made from rustic timber, there are potted plants scattered around along with hand-painted signage. It’s all very Spanish. There are also big ceiling windows that let in lots of light, so you kinda get the feel of being outside.

Its a little taste of Spain on our doorstep.

Ladies that Lunch |Veeno – Wine tasting and Food Pairing #sheffieldlife

It’s been an eventful few weeks ; Bonkers Bingo at Mecca Bingo, the Crucible Theatre to see Frost/Nikon. Then getting invited to eat out at one of the restaurants participating in Dine Sheffield – 8 Oz Burger Co.

It all accumulated last Thursday with an evening wine tasting with my friend Rach at Veeno Italian Wine Cafe, Ecclesall Road, Sheffield.

If your not familiar with Veeno it’s probably because it’s fairly new, having only opened its doors to the public a few months ago. Its a hop, skip and a jump away from Nonnas and it is situated in the building that used to house Carluccios Restaurant.
