London Road restaurant Rushour has been relaunched as seafood and grill specialist, Surf & Turf.

Owners Pansy and Jeremy Plester and daughter Toni have rebranded after eight years: “We looked at what people were choosing to eat and the comments they made – and decided we were going to offer more of a dining experience,” says Jeremy, former manager at Baldwin’s Omega. Pansy trained as a chef at the Peacock in Rowsley. Surf & Turf, just above Ponsfords, is now open 6.30-10pm, Tuesday to Saturday; BYO wine on weekdays; card payments accepted.

BUBBLING UNDER

A tea-drinking revolution that started in the Far East, then swept America and Europe, has arrived in Sheffield. Bubble tea is served hot or cold, with a base of green or black tea and either a fruity or milky flavour. The ‘bubble’ element comes from chewy tapioca balls that are added before the concoction is vigorously shaken and served. Pearl’s Bubble Tea Café is now open to everyone, at the Students’ Union in Western Bank.

WINE, DINE AND DEFINE...

Venues across the area are lining up an exciting weekend of entertainment for foodies...

The Tickled Trout dining pub at Barlow is hosting its first wine tasting on Friday, featuring Tuscan wines and a three-course meal to go with them; tickets £45.

Whitley Hall Hotel is introducing a 1920s-themed murder mystery dinner, also on Friday, with a three-course meal for would-be sleuths; £35.

Meanwhile chef Tom Samworth – former second chef to Gary Rhodes and later head chef at Rowleys, the Devonshire Arms in Baslow and the Wig & Pen – is returning to his roots with a Saturday Gourmet Evening at Sheffield College’s Sparks restaurant; five courses £35.
