Review on Rafters Restaurant

Perched above a shop in the leafy Sheffield suburb of Nether Green, Rafters has been plying its trade for a good many years and is still a crowd-puller (note that the entrance is tucked away discreetly round the corner from Oakbrook Road). The many-sided, first-floor dining room is defined by oak beams and rafters, exposed brickwork, hand-blown glass lights from Milan and a predominance of russet colours.

The kitchen cares about supplies and buys locally where possible for their regularly changing menus. To start there might be terrine of rabbit, hazelnut granola, beetroot and blackberry or cured wild sea trout, summer vegetables, tarragon, and confit potato. While main courses take in fillet of sea bass, herb gnocchi, crab, fennel and tomato emulsion or for meat lovers there's Derbyshire lamb, braised shoulder, roasted rump, red pepper, courgette, artichoke, and confit potatoes. Finish with indulgent desserts in the shape of sticky date pudding paired with peanut butter ice cream and salted caramel or honey brûlée, frozen yoghurt and English strawberries.

The wine list runs to sixty bins knowledgeable garnered from all corners of the world.
