Brocco Kitchen is an all-day neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of social Sheffield. With a mantra of eating well, this urban kitchen opened as part of Brocco on the Park boutique hotel in 2014, and has been attracting accolades ever since.
Brocco’s brand of Modern British cooking with a Nordic twist has earned the Kitchen a Michelin Plate in 2019, as well as a trio of restaurant awards from Sheffield’s Westside Magazine. 2018 also saw the hotel win the coveted White Rose award for Small Hotel of the Year from Welcome to Yorkshire. Picasso is widely thought to have stayed under the boutique hotel and restaurant’s roof in 1950 during his visit to Sheffield’s Peace Congress.
Brocco Kitchen is feted for its colourful and fresh food: breakfasts are bounteous, lunch and evening features Nordic-inspired smorgasbord and weekend afternoon teas are the right side of decadence. The 52-cover restaurant has three rooms: fireside, parkside and an outdoor terrace. Its bright and twinkly decor makes for a relaxing and intimate space, ideal for leisurely brunch, relaxed dining, or special celebrations.
Head chef Leslie Buddington’s inventive smorgasbord small-plate menu has taken Sheffield by storm and makes Brocco Kitchen a popular spot for eating out. The main menu changes four times a year with the seasons. With a firm emphasis on cleaner eating, you’ll find dishes like scallops with pea purée and crispy potatoes or cauliflower, sweet potato and avocado tacos. Sweeter notes include honey and lavender panna cotta and lemon and blueberry Eton mess. Brunch is one of Brocco Kitchen’s specialities and their imaginative breakfast menu caters for all appetites. Choose from baked eggs or porridge with homemade granola if you’re looking for a healthy start, or indulge yourself with one of their hot breakfasts – The Hunter, The Fisher or The Gardener.
Afternoon teas are a weekend treat and, with every element made fresh, you’ll enjoy a quintessentially Brocco experience to remember. Hand-finished sandwiches, mini savouries and dainty sweets perch on a bird-topped cake stand – enjoy with loose-leaf tea or a glass of Prosecco. Sunday lunch with live jazz is a real highlight and Brocco’s Sunday roasts are incredibly popular.
Their cocktail and wine list is really worth a look too, and don’t forget you can enjoy an early evening tipple on Brocco’s lush outdoor terrace. Overlooking one of Sheffield’s most loved green spaces – Endcliffe Park – you can watch the sunset while sipping on your favourite cocktail.
