About Greenhead House
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
Cosy rustic restaurant with passion for local flavour
This unusual, 17th Century cottage restaurant lies in a secluded walled garden in Sheffield where a 30-capacity dining room plays host to updated European classics cooked by chef-patron, Neil Allen. Like the flock wallpaper and crisp linen, service is traditional yet friendly with Neil’s wife, Anne, playing maitre’d. In fact, this has been the Allens’ baby for more than 20 years. But there’s nothing predictable about the cooking. Starters could include pate of Arbroath Smokie flavoured with malt whiskey and served with homemade mini oatcakes or cannellini bean puree with pickled mushrooms and pitta croutons. Typical mains include venison pie (red wine, chestnuts, a puff pastry top) and escalope of pork tenderloin with sliced parma ham and a Putenesca style sauce. South Med meets Anglo-French vibes. For dessert, a plate of seaonsal fruits (mini plum syllabub, a blackberry clafouti and damson ice cream in Autumn, for example) belies a genuine passion for fine food. The set menu offers good value, and the wine list is both accessible and fun.
