Sheffield’s Creative Industries Quarter may be a long way from Paris, but that hasn’t stopped its newest venue taking inspiration from across the channel.

The first supper club at The Mowbray - which opened last month after a three year restoration of the former steel and iron merchants - will take place on August 18.

Called The Yorkshire Barbecue, it was inspired by a ‘boho feast’ at the former May Ray restaurant in Paris, owned by stars including Johnny Depp.

The summer feast aims to be a long lazy dinner that ends on the dance floor, and will include two courses, a drink and music from guest DJ Charlotte Gutu.

Dishes will feature ingredients sourced from Yorkshire - including fresh mackerel from Whitby, by way of JH Mann at Sharrowvale.
