Popular Damon’s Restaurant to transform into a bar
A well-known Sheffield restaurant is to become a bar, despite objections.
The application was made by Heronswood Design on behalf of Damon’s. They applied to Sheffield City Council to make some modifications to the restaurant, at Crystal Peaks, and extend opening hours.
At the planning and highways meeting, a representative said: “We’ve discussed this at great length with the city’s planning officer and environmental health officer. The proposal before you represents a compromise that was agreed and would not have a significant impact on the residents or community.”
He said 70 per cent of the restaurant's trade is currently in food, with 30 per cent in drinks. This would change to 60 per cent drinks, 40 per cent food.
Some residents were concerned the proposals would cause noise nuisance and lead to more people parking in the street.
But officers were satisfied with the plans and councillors on the planning and highways committee approved the proposals.
Damon’s was first set up in 1988 to bring American cuisine to the UK and the Sheffield branch opened in 1990.
