Top Five - Mary Arlidge

I've been a bit short on Top 5s recently (hint, hint, please can you send me some?).

Here's the latest - from Mary Arlidge.

Rafters - fine dining with great mid-week offers

Peppercorn- exciting local newcomer already expected to be a firm favourite

Graze Inn - fun place to meet up with friends offering great value and variety

Kashmiri  Aroma - never fails to please, special fish dishes, very popular

Lokanta - good atmosphere, tasty Turkish food at great prices

Not a bad little selection, I think! If you would like to have your favourites posted in this section, email a list of your top five destinations for eating and drinking, including a short sentence about each, to me at


  1. Sadly Rafters closed on Saturday and reopened this week under new ownership.

  2. You're quite right. Rafter has now been taking over by the head chef and FOH manager of Devonshire Arms. I hear that they're keeping the current menu for the time being and will be revamping it in January. As they're both well respected in the Sheffield food scene and they're planning to keep the food in a similar style as the old Rafters, I think it's certainly worthy of a visit!
