Brocco on the Park – Sheffield
The North

Once you get inside this restaurant with eight rooms, beside leafy Endcliffe Park and close to Sheffield’s upmarket Nether Edge district, Brocco on the Park is a shining example of how imaginative yet practical design can lift a place far above the bar. Its owner and creator, Tiina Carr, is half-Finnish and the hotel is now a perfect marriage of pared-down Scandi chic and British comfort. Tiina’s theme, executed with the lightest of touches, is birds (rooms are given names like Nightjar’s Nest and Pigeon’s Loft); her mantra is ‘sleep well, eat well, live well’ and in her pretty, carefully-crafted interiors that is just what you do. The ground floor, with an honesty bar for hotel guests, is given over to the stylish indoor/outdoor Neighbourhood Kitchen for relaxed all-day dining (‘seasonal, a little bit Scandinavian and unmistakably Sheffield’) with smorgasbord lunches, Jazzy Sundays with live music and Nordic-style tapas, and plenty of choice.

Nota Bene

Pablo Picasso is alleged to have slept under Brocco on the Park’s rafters during his trip to Sheffield’s Peace Congress in 1950.

SEE

The Sheffield Hallam park run on Brocco’s doorstep on a Saturday morning or stroll out to the Peak District from neighbouring Endcliffe Park.

EAT

At the hotel’s neighbourhood kitchen. Modern British cuisine with Scandinavian influences, dishes are daring, with smorgasbord-style tapas on the lunch menu and decadent afternoon teas at weekends.

BUY

Artisan, Sheffield-made products from local producers in the surrounding Sharrow Vale neighbourhood.
