The Cambridge Street Collective will be a culturally diverse food destination set up as part of the Heart of the City programme, and will be run by The Milestone Group, who already have form when it comes to setting up a successful food hall.

The Milestone Group are behind Cutlery Works in Neepsend, as well as The Milestone pub, and will come together with award-winning chef Luke French, who is behind Krynkl restaurant, JÖRO.

The new food hall will sit behind Henry’s Corner and Bethel Sunday School on Cambridge Street, and will feature a contemporary food hall, cookery school and fine dining experience over multiple floors.

How the Cambridge Street Collective will look

Matt Bigland, founder of Milestone Group, said: “We are excited, humbled and ready to drive this project and the city centre into a new dining era.

“We believe a community is brought together via food and socialising.

"The food must be authentic, cooked with passion and celebrated by families around a communal table. Cambridge Street Collective is a clear reflection of this and will be open to all communities across the city.

“This is a not simply a food hall but a community hub – a destination of mixed-use spaces, combining everything from live events and cookery classes to culture and co-working – creating something that is unique to Sheffield.”
