“Unpretentious atmosphere, quality cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

My 3rd visit to Peppercorn - I suppose you can't have too much of a good thing... There was no objection to me choosing a few starters, Tapas-style, and no main. Unlike many restaurants, there was no question of a minimum charge. In the end, after quaffing rather too much Prosecco and Chablis, my total spend was probably more than average anyway ! Salmon 3 ways was excellent - just the right amount of smoking in the smoked version - Smoked Eel Ballotine with horseradish yogurt & cucumber granita was to die for, Crispy duck leg bonbon, tea-smoked breast, hoisin & cucumber salad was good and Home-made scotch egg (quail) with an apple & pancetta salad was brilliant. A reasonable Prosecco, by the glass, an excellent bottle of Chablis, the relaxed ambience and the friendly but non-intrusive and, on the whole, efficient service, combined with the food to make a very enjoyable Friday evening. Highly recommended.

“Excellent modern British cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Delighted to discover some of the best food we've had in Sheffield out by Dore station! We ate from the Carte - although the midweek £5, £10, £5 menu also looked good. Homemade bread rolls with Henderson's Relish butter set the tone and we knew then that we were in for a treat. Both our starters (duck bonbons, tea smoked duck breast and black pudding scotch egg) were incredibly good. Our mains too (belly pork and lamb with sweetbreads) were beautifully presented, well-balanced and - most importantly - very tasty. We had a side order of beans with goats cheese and chilli which worked brilliantly. Both our desserts were lovely too; a special mention for my elderflower mousse with raspberry sorbet - a light and delicious way to end a very good meal.

We were pleased to find a carefully selected few Spanish wines on the list and enjoyed our Rueda. Perfect on a warm June evening.

Don't be put off by the unprepossessing exterior - the food is excellent, the service impeccable and very friendly. Nice and buzzy on a Thursday evening. The a la carte menu is perfect for a special occasion and I would imagine the midweek menu would be a treat for a more everyday meal.

“We will be back t”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Started my evening with a cosmopolitan cocktail at the bar lovely. There was just two of us and although the tables are a little small,and the view of the fire extinguisher is not the best, it didn't spoil our evening. Duck starter was delicious and my main course of Turbot wonderful, sticky toffee pudding and a nice bottle of red to complete a great evening. Thank you everyone for giving us a lovely night we will be back.

“Definitely for special occasions, and often just for fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've had two family parties here, and a very big birthday, plus a couple of nights out. Two of those occasions were with our very well behaved grandchildren, who were treated just as any adult customer, and asked what food they would like. Children's style food (not on the menu) was offered, but we always keep to proper grown up dishes when taking them out.

We had a fantastic time on all occasions. There are lovely champagne cocktails and a well stocked bar with lots of variety. Food was excellent as always: atmosphere superb, table beautifully set, service faultless with friendly competent staff who know how to look after customers. Wine is reasonably priced and a small but good selection. Regular menu changes mean there is always something new to look forward to, and we are back as often as we can.

Really can't fault this place.
