“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

I recently visited Site Gallery as part of the art festival in Sheffield running this winter, and it was awesome! Exhibitions were great, staff were very friendly, and the cafe was welcoming with tasteful food.

“This place was so much better when they had darkrooms etc.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Even though I made good use of the darkrooms that they once had here, I've never been a great fan of the artwork that they have on display....mostly sound and video installations, as far as I can remember.

However, I've managed to take a couple of good photographs........

“A living, breathing gallery”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you ignore Spearmint Rhino opposite, Brown Street has some excellent attractions, and it's always worth checking out what's on at Site. The exhibitions are always fresh and interesting, and the gallery often commissions exhibitions from artists in residence that are fascinating to watch grow. The cafe is small but reasonably priced and with a choice of good lunch snacks, and the shop is going from strength to strength: you can buy prints and artefacts by local artists, the zine and magazine section is very well stocked, and not even Paperchase has better selection of cards!

The best thing about Site is that the curators are always interested in engaging the public through the shows, and there have often been week-long events with live bands in the evenings, which allow either collaboration or interesting discussions with the artists and other guests. It's a lovely place to visit, with warm and helpful staff.

“AVOID AVOID AVOID”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Sorry to say that despite the hype: "presenting innovative, challenging and creative work" its amateurish artwork really lets it down. Specifically the "art" in the cafe was disjointed and (sorry) but a bit of a joke for a gallery. It was better suited in a nursery.
Give this place a miss and head for a Gallery that knows what they're doing.
