Local street food specialists Percy & Lily’s have roped in their friends to stage Eat Street market: “We’ve sought high quality street food and focused on what’s local,” say Trudi Colman and Justine Twigge.

“Our six-trader line-up will bring flavours from around the globe including India, Vietnam, Mexico, America – and even Yorkshire pie and peas!” Percy & Lily’s offering will range from hot dogs and pork sliders to Lebanese lamb flatbreads.


Great British Pie Week gets under way on Monday – and this time coeliacs will be able to enjoy it to the full.

The Angel at Holmesfield is offering a variety of homemade gluten-free pies. And this year there will be two GF cask ales to go with them. “It’s usually only available in bottles,” says owner Mandy Drewery. “But East Yorks Brewery is providing Against The Grain in barrels especially for pie week.”


There’s bad news for foodies with the closure of both the Pasta Bar at Sharrowvale and Loch Fyne in Glossop Road.

A Loch Fyne spokeswoman said: “Our Sheffield site was not performing to the levels of our other restaurants and the commercial decision was made to sell.”

The Sharrow site is reopening under new management with a Sardinian flavour.


A sale of antique pub memorabilia has helped the Rising Sun in Abbey Lane to raise £3,000 for its neighbour, St Luke’s Hospice.
