We ordered a take-away from this little Bistro and it was excellent. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered it an hour prior to pick-up and every care was taken to ensure that the food was in condition when we ate it. The pork was very good indeed. If you are having a dinner party and do not have time to prepare anything then this would be an excellent choice.
Hope we will have the opportunity to visit the Bistro to eat next time, there was an offer for lunch of £10 for three courses - sounds excellent value. About 2 miles from the centre of Sheffield.

We had a lovely meal on Saturday lunchtime and were amazed ti find a 3 course menu on offer at £10 per head. There is a limited but eclectic choice on the lunch menu, and as 2 of us opted for the black pudding/bacon stater and did not want the poached egg it comes with normally, a celeriac mash substitute for the egg was suggested and accepted and proved fantastic!
Portion size was perfect for lunchtime and the food was, without exception, enjoyed by all 6 of us. The restaurant is not licenced but for a small corkage fee you can take your own alcohol (£2/bottle of wine) which makes it even more economical overall.
I can't reccommend this restaurant highly enough. If we lived locally we would be in every week!
If you live locally, or even not so near, get yourself down here and bring your favorite bottle/s with you for a very pleasant, unhurried meal.

We've been to Barretts several times and have always enjoyed the great food and friendly service. Well worth a visit. Only improvement suggestion would be to serve vegetables as either standard or an optional extra.

Had a lovely family meal out at Barret's. They squeezed us in at fairly late notice to eat at 6 o clock so the dining room was fairly empty for the first hour or so. But James came and introduced himself and spoke to us for a good few minutes when we arrived.

It's bring your own bottle which makes the prices seem far more reasonable, with not paying the heavy mark ups on drinks in these types of restaurant it suddenly doesn't seem as bad to be having a full 3 courses!

I ate the Parsnip soup with home made black pudding and pancetta, which are 3 of my favourite things anyway and that didn't let it down. Then guinea fowl cooked in 3/4 different ways which was delicious and finally a chocolate mille feuille with thin pieces of chocolate instead of pastry.

The portions were not tiny, I left feeling full after 3 courses, will definitely return and you never know maybe even use James' event catering as well in the near future...

Sam thank you for such a positively pleasing review when our diners go to the trouble of spending time writing positive reviews on trip advisor it makes Russell an I very proud of what we do. Fills us with energy, driving us to work even harder to create those magic moments so they return and tell their friends.
Thanks again James.
