  1. We tried Napoli Centro on Friday night and I reckon this is now the best "naples style" pizza place in Sheffield. Proove is still good (and I should say far better than your bog standard chain pizzas) but on a recent trip we though they were a bit too doughy on the edges. Porter pizza is in second place but its not really a place to eat in and frankly it sometimes gets too busy for their own good - the whole place is overstressed at peak times. And the staff turnover is very high so apart from a few regulars (owners) no one seems to know what is going on half the time. Napoli Centro was nicer inside than Porter (i.e. proper tables and chairs) although much smaller than proove. Very friendly bunch. Italian pizzaioli very laid back and the pizza was truly excellent and served in a few minutes . Very thin base with good charred spots on it . Narrow but puffed up, light and crispy edge (the cornicione). Great quality tomato sauce and creamy mozzarella.
  2. The new link road is now supposed to be open in October - they have some community event on 7th where local residents can explore it before it opens to traffic. https://www.stockport.gov.uk/news/a6-to-manchester-airport-relief-road-set-to-open#5b97990793187 Assuming it work as planned , I would imagine the new "shortest" way to the airport will be Castleton , Chapel , A6 to Hazel Grove and the new link road all the rest of the way. However I imagine Winnats Pass will get well and truly stuffed !! So I may stick to Calver , Stoney , A623 to Chapel etc
  3. I think he meant an annual pass. Silver membership with 2 adults and 2 kids is £ 150. We had one of these when the kids were small and bought a book of discounted carpark passes. My wife took the kids loads to play in the (tremendous) adventure playground and we had plenty of family visits to the house and gardens. Well worth it.
  4. The quality of logs from this company are excellent . https://www.certainlywood.co.uk/
  5. Upshot espresso is quite nice. Very good coffee and sandwiches / pastries etc https://www.upshotespresso.co.uk/
  6. On paper at least , Castleton / Winnats Pass/ Chapel - onto A6 then down the new link road (A555?) should be a winner... Depends on just how much traffic ends up trying to get up and down Winnats . At the moment , it is a bit of a secret route (sshhh !!) Otherwise its out to Calver / Stoney Middleton . Get the A623 then the A6 and then the new A555. The new link saves all the chuffing about in Pott Shrigley and finding rat runs past Wilmslow ! And hopefully , I never have to go via Snake / Glossop / Mottram ever again!
  7. Oh No ... I hope they are all OK. A wonderful restaurant run by lovely people. I can only think maybe they decided it was too much with two small kids to look after.
  8. Just buy office 365. You get the full MS office suite and can install on 5 PC's , mobile devices , ipads etc. Always kept up to date and you get online storage thrown in. Its only about £ 80 PA https://products.office.com/en-gb/compare-all-microsoft-office-products?tab=1
  9. Try porter pizza on Sharrowvale. Not a restaurant (although you can eat in sat on stools) but the pizzas are really good. Better than proove I reckon. http://www.porterpizza.co.uk/
  10. If you have a membership - try Costco. Their prices are pretty keen - and the fitting facility is modern and clean. Plus you can potter round the shop while they fit them and have a slice of pizza.
  11. The length of the indoor slopes are useless for anyone other than beginners... You spend more time queuing / on the lift than actual skiing. And they get busy to the point of being dangerous IMO... In its heydey , the ski village was really quite good , a long few runs and the dendix with the water spray was pretty decent to ski on. And the matting has moved on in response to the indoor real snow slopes. I think it was killed off due to lack of investment - it always felt half cocked, scruffy and tired. Even the new bits like the soft play area and bowling were never clean... Done right , I see no reason why it wouldn't do well.

  13. It doesn't help that the Sheffield traffic cameras have been broken for ages.. Anyone know why ? Or whether they will ever work again ? I did email the council to ask but they never bothered to answer.
