Me and 8 of my friends visited the Milestone, last Sunday.
We dined upstairs, and it was one of the best meals that I have ever had. Everything was perfect, from the starter to the pudding. The service was excellent as well.
I would advise anyone to go here for a special occasion. For 10 of us we paid £10 deposit, and the meal came to just over £300 and they put a service fee of £28.98 on - (the only thing I would say is that we had to tell to them that they needed to take the 90.00 deposit off the bill).
Had a relaxed girlie pre-Xmas meal there the other night. Lovely warm welcome by the bar staff, food was delicious, well cooked and piping hot. Good varied menu, value for money and vegetarian options available.
My Yorkshire bride and I honeymooned at the Strines Inn, 1993! Being from Miami, Florida, you can imagine how remarkably different the experience was for me... absolutely terrific! The four-poster bed, copper bed-warmer, walls so thick we could put a pillow in the window-frame, sit in it and gaze out at the reservoir, foley, other great views...as I recall...memory is a little vague, but think I got the views right.
We went for pleasant country walks, dined on fine, honest pub fare served by pleasant staff in a friendly atmosphere. Hand pulled bitter, right? My favourite! Never, ever, will I get a pint like that in America!
We later lived in Longley, Sheffield, and would often drive out to the Strines for a pint and a meal... drawn always by the wondrous surrounding countryside, Ladybower dam, etc...
By the way, if any other Yanks (The Yorkshire blokes used to say my wife was a Yank too, one Yank and her knickers came down!!! LOL) see this, the dam and reservoir were the setting for the film, "Dam Busters." The history of the terrible flood... oh, I could go on and on, I was so enamoured of Strines... loved it so.
I've since returned to America, my Yorkshire Lass passed away, God rest her marvellous soul. Hello to Joan, her sister, and all my friends there, if you ever read this. God Bless you all, Stuart.
I was a little afraid that the Red House would have lost some of its unique atmosphere when it underwent its recent refurbishment. However, after visiting tonight to watch a gig, I have to say they have really improved on what was already a great place.
Really tasteful and warm decoration and the outside area with decking, tables and chairs, roofed and with heaters is the nicest smoking area I've seen in the city centre.
Rang to enquire whether a table could be booked - quick answer NO - and before I could make any further enquiries the young man had put the phone down and off he had gone.
Disappointed, but will not be trying again, as I wanted to take someone who is visiting Sheffield from out of town next Saturday and needed to know we could get a meal. I imagine it would have been a very good meal, we will now have to rethink our night out.
