Sunday Lunch
Mixing heritage with modernity has always been the driving force at The Milestone. Housed in the oldest industrial site in Sheffield, we serve dishes that stir up memories and awaken the taste buds. At The Milestone we don’t buy anything if we can make it ourselves, including bread, pasta, chutneys and ice cream. It’s about being close to raw ingredients which is really something that matters to us.
In keeping with this ethos we've handpicked a selection of natural wines whose producers share our passion for artisan produce.

Please note that we will be closed on Tuesdays & Wednesdays following our relaunch.

The Milestone has always been a favourite of ours, but last time we went on a Saturday evening in a party of 8, it had a new chef and was clearly struggling with small portions, cold food and ingredients missing ie the clams in the mussel and clam dish.

So, it was with some trepidation to go back for Sunday lunch using a Groupon voucher that we had been gifted. It was back to top class standard - food piping hot, good sized portions and quick and accurate service. So glad Paddy and the team have redeemed themselves and kept a loyal customer.

Lovely meal, good choice. Ate with my wife who needs to avoid dairy. The advice and service from the staff was outstanding and friendly.

The food came promptly and was outstanding and good value for money.

Cocktails were fantastic and desserts were well worth the money.

Went on a Friday evening at 6pm, it was very quiet, afew diners in but by the time we left around 730 it was even quieter (coronavirus?). The food was good, afew dishes could have been hotter and the burger better presented. All tasted fine and we would give it another go sometime.

I love this place. The food is Devine and the staff first class.
The roast potatoes still need work. They are bolders. A steak knife has a job get through let alone my teeth. But. The Yorkshire’s are on another level. They are gorgeous as the rest of the food. I will be back very soo. Thanks.

Always good food and we enjoy our experience here. We go when in Sheffield usually before a concert. Luckily we had plenty of time this visit and it wasn’t a problem , but we did have a good wait between starter and main course. Usually we are served a lot quicker , but as I said, I would rather wait and the food be good. Would just have been nice to be informed of the wait time.

We enjoyed our visit to the Milestone; the food and wine choices are interesting and provided tasty when delivered although the parkin was a bit dry and could have used more treacle. Thereis also decent beer from local breweries. Service was friendly but could have been more attentive at times. The price points are fair considering the food quality. Nice ambience - recommended.

Have used the groupon deal a number if times, however i am disappointed that the two course menu inly allows starter and main, we would usually have main and dessert so I will no longer buy the groupon deal.,...shame.

We visited The Milestone last Friday evening and ordered burgers and drinks. The atmosphere and the service were very good but the food was a bit average. The bacon and the patty were overcooked in my opinion and was expecting a sligtly better quality for the fries. I would like to visit again and try something else before concluding if The Milestone is a great place to go for dinner.

We were able to reserve a table at the last minute as Kelham was very busy!
Good food although a few things were off the menu (quite late on a Saturday night to be fair), service was good and food came quite promptly.
Just a little slow at getting our bill at the end (we were wanting to rush off for the tram home!) but was dealt with efficiently after prompting.
Great experience overall, have been a number of times over the past 20 yrs and we’ve never been disappointed.

Second visit. First was much better. Firstly, cocktail order was incorrect, then, Pale Rider, brewed yards away, was awful and returned. Choice of starters simply too abstract. Mains ok, but still a little too clever.Waitress was excellent and unruffled by issues. Whilst not overly pricey, still not great vfm.

Good choice on the menu. After making our choice we had to wait a little longer than expected but it was quite busy. The artichoke soup was enjoyed by all as was the pork belly main dish, although we all thought a portion of crackling would have completed the meal. All served with a smile.

Second attempt to submit feedback. Nice food. Service somewhat lacking.

As a diner, I do not need to know I am seated at Table 2. Not really sure why our waiter addressed us as Table 2 when presenting our starters, and again when presenting our mains.

Is it really necessary to ask us FOUR times if we are enjoying our food? Surely, one would suffice? Don't worry, if we have a major issue with the food, we would let you know!

Please open the wine bottle at our table. It was brought to us already opened. Also, I had to ask twice to view the label. Hint - the customer might actually wish to verify you are bringing him the wine ordered.

With Sunday lunch, you either need to increase the amount of meat on the plate (for me, not an issue if that means a small increase in the price) or reduce the amount of veg served. There was far too much veg versus the small amount of pork so I had to leave some veg.

In short: nice food; service could do better!

It was a nice time and a nice meal. The food was quite good but not amazing. We all had fun and the service was good. The waitress probably suggested twice as much of the root veg as we needed and had originally said and it wasn’t that nice. Starters were tasty but small. Main courses were quite good. Dessert was ok, everyone who had it liked the cheese.
