Visiting Sheffield?

Planning to visit the Natural Bed Company showroom in Sheffield?

Many of our customers come from far afield to see and try out our wooden bed collection. They often ask for suggestions for other places to visit while in Sheffield – where are the best places to get some lunch or a good coffee, which are the not-to-be-missed galleries, parks and museums?
With this in mind we thought we’d write a blog listing a few of our favourite places – from well-loved Sheffield icons to where to find the best cappuccino!

Food & Drink in Sheffield

Coffee & Cafes:
There are so many fantastic coffee bars in Sheffield it’s very hard to choose! So here are a small selection of our favourites…
Steamyard – a new addition to our list of favourites and just down the road from the Natural Bed Company Sheffield showroom. It offers great coffee and the best doughnuts in town!
Remo’s in Broomhill offers fabulous authentic Italian coffees, amazing hot chocolate and great quality lunchtime treats and cakes.
Tamper – this Sheffield brand has been so successful there are two Tampers now! A small coffee bar near to Natural Bed Company and a much larger coffee bar and restaurant in the Cultural Industries Quarter.
Marmadukes – is right in the city centre of Sheffield (opposite the Catholic Cathedral) – try here for a wonderful brunch!

Restaurants:
The Milestone is an award winning gastro-pub dedicated to championing local produce.
Gusto Italiano (city centre) and Nonnas (Ecclesall Road) are both great Italian restaurants, if you have the time (and love Italian food as much as I do) – try both!
The Cricket Inn in Totley borders the peak district national park and Sheffield. Fantastic wines and ales, they also have a gastro-pub style menu to die for.
Thyme cafe in Broomhill is committed to sourcing the very best ingredients directly from markets and local suppliers to offer great quality food to their diners – reflected in a daily changing blackboard menu.

Bars:
The Greystones is a great place for good ale and great live music – check out their website to find out what’s on.
Coming to Sheffield by train? If you are, you won’t be able to miss the Sheffield Tap – this station based bar has rapidly become a Sheffield institution! It’s know for an amazing selection of real ales and even has it’s own brewery!!!

Food & Drink Shopping:
Take a trip to Sharrow Vale Road to find a fantastic collection of independent deli counters and small specialist stores. Starmore Boss is a wonderful new purveyor of fine wine, spirits and ales, while the Sharrow Marrow offers everything from fresh vegetables and organic produce to luxury foods.

Independent Shops

Looking for something unique? Sheffield has a great selection of independent shops covering clothing, jewellery and home-wares.

Clothing & Jewellery:
Collard Manson are just down the road from Natural Bed Company – they offer a wonderful selection of jewellery, gifts and unusual clothing with a stylish, slightly gothic sensibility. Each To Their Own on West Street is a clothing boutique, they hold a range of individual men’s and women’s clothing – many are limited edition runs.

If you like vintage clothing  you are in for a treat in Sheffield. Near to our store are a number of great vintage shops including Cow, Freshmans and Syd & Mallory.

Home-wares:
You will of course find a fantastic selection of gifts and home-wares at Natural Bed Company – including bedding, throws, towels and toiletries, scented candles, photo frames and mugs. In fact you can try our Fitzwilliam Street showroom for everything from cushion covers to lampshades!

If you are looking for modern designer lighting you may also want to visit David Village Lighting now in Broomhill, Sheffield. They have an amazing selection of lighting from exclusive brands including Flos, Foscarini and Kartell.

‘A Month of Sundays’ on Sharrow Vale Road is definitely worth a visit – it is a wonderful gallery of prints and posters from local legend Pete McKee.

Entertainment

Theatres:
If you are looking for an evening of great quality entertainment try our City Hall, Crucible and Lyceum theatres – you’re sure to find something interesting!
The Showroom Cinema (near to Sheffield station) is a great option for a range of art-house movies and, as they also have a fantastic cafe-bar, you can spend an entire evening here!

Galleries:
The Millennium Gallery and the Site Gallery are the perfect choice if you are looking for modern art.
Graves Gallery and Weston Park Museum offer classic, traditional paintings and sculptures. Weston Park Museum is a great option if you are looking to entertain your children, not only does it have exhibitions specifically designed for them, the museum is situated in a beautiful park.

Parks:
Sheffield is packed full of beautiful parks and gardens. Personal favourites are the Botanical Gardens Broomhill, and Endcliffe Park (just down the road from Botanical Gardens if you want to see them both!) If you are looking for a longer walk follow the river in Endcliffe Park through to Whiteley Woods and out into the beautiful Peak District.
