  1. That's nothing - we paid £11 for a chicken "wrap" and a measly pile of curly fries. Wrap was stale and chicken to vile to eat. I know you don't expect haute cuisine at these places, but that was beyond a joke. Gravy and chips for £4 from another stall was thankfully quite edible!
  2. According to their Facebook page they have reopened - only closed for a couple of days.
  3. Yes -when it first opened I think the owners were actually Italian and both pizzas and pasta were spot on. Since then it has changed hands and though the pasta seems to have survived the transition, not so for the pizza. My kids actually request pasta from there rather than the pizza, and that's saying something!
  4. Any idea how long it's closed for? Hope they're not doing anything too radical - I quite liked its slightly dated charm!
  5. Not so fond of the pizza, but the pasta is fantastic.
  6. Great video! Found out about lots of places I hadn't heard of -will definitely have to give Pina a try! In terms of what else to include: obviously not in the bar and food category, but in terms of physical pursuits, buth the Foundry Climbing Centre and The House Skate park (which featured in the background at the end of the video) are definitely worthy of a mention!
  7. Sheffield is known in some parts of the world, not necessarily for the things you might expect. I remember asking one Chinese student how he was aware of Sheffield as his response was "The Snooker"! We are also quite well known as the location of the Full Monty, and of course, less positive reasons such as the terrible event at Hillsborough in 30 years ago.
  8. Epirus on Barber Road, Crookesmoor might be worth a look. It's technically S10, but very close to S6. It badges itself as Mediterranean rather than specifically Greek, but there are definitely Greek elements and it's quite relaxed and family frendly -my kids loved it. Sadly no website to link to, but it's on Tripadvisor (with 5 star reviews).
  9. A regular visitor for the same reason as you, and just finding somewhere to get a quick coffee and a snack is sometimes challenging - even Sainsbury's doesn't have a cafe!. Have ended up driving to St James retail park, just for the Costa! The exception is Cafe Familia in the town precinct , which is a great place open during the day.
  10. John Lewis sell Fitbits, so it's possible they might also do the straps? Having said that, I bought a (non-branded) replacement strap for mine online last year and it's been absolutely fine - better than the original, if anything.
  11. Both - it was ram raided (again) last night and appears to be having new doors fitted today.
  12. Was related to more break -ins in the area, but apparently the Police made some arrests this time. On a less positive note it looks like Asda on South Road was ram-raided again last night......
  13. I have also wondered this myself - would be interested if anyone knows the answer!
  14. I tried this place for the first time last week and can verify the OPs claim that it was delicious, and (in my rather more limited experience) authentic. Also reasonably priced, which is a bonus. Will definitely be going back.
  15. Sheffield Star have now cottoned on to this - only 6 days after it happened! https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/police-reveal-details-of-another-supermarket-ram-raid-in-sheffield-1-9589310
  16. We are away on that day, so rally pleased to hear that the BBC will be broadcasting this live. Thanks for posting MEC176.
  17. The incident was actually Wednesday night/early Thursday and the store was shut for most of the day yesterday. Would have thought there were more lucrative places to target, to be honest!
  18. Would be interested in getting one too. we have nowhere sheltered to store the current large brown one and it repeatedly gets blown onto the road in high winds, spreading bottles and cans everywhere. As well as being inconvenient, it is potentially quite dangerous. I added this as a note when we requested a replacement bin when the lid got broken off a couple of weeks ago, but have had no response from the council/Veolia.
  19. Apparently this has been granted a £4.8m loan of public cash by Sheffield Council https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/sheffield-ski-village-council-leaders-sign-off-4-8-million-to-pave-the-way-for-new-sports-complex-at-former-site-1-9564264 Sounds like an ambitious plan. I hope it comes off.
  20. If you extend to 10-11 O clock, then you get Walkley/Hillsborough with direct access to the tram. If it's specifically a flat that you're after, then consider Kelham Island - a very up and coming (some might say "hipster") area with the city centre on one side and a tram stop at the other.
  21. Yes, great to see Dan Walker, as a local university alumnus getting involved. he seemed genuinely moved by the campaign.
  22. Saw this on BBC Breakfast this morning: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-46738576 What a moving story - Tony was one of the kids playing in the park that day that the plane reportedly avoided, crashing into the hillside beyond and killing all ten airmen on board. He clearly has been suffering the trauma of this event for the last 75 years, and has tended the memorial ever since. The fly past clearly means a lot to him and I hope it would give him closure.
  23. Look North last night reported that Yorkshire Water were planning for a potential water shortage next summer depending on the level of rain/snow fall we get over the next few months. Presumably some of their reservoirs are also in the Peak District. Love the National Library of Scotland map website with the slider. Have just wasted far too long playing with that!
  24. OK, have now tried accessing the website on my phone and excessive whitespace aside, it does seem to work well. Thanks.
