Planning application submitted for former Crosspool restaurant

Planning application submitted for former Crosspool restaurant premisis

Greencross Chemists Ltd has submitted a planning application to make alterations to the empty Aligarh resturant premisis in Crosspool shopping precinct.

Diagrams as part of application 17/05164/FUL appear to show a pharmacy-style green cross sign on the outside of the Sandygate Road building. A roof would be erected over the rear yard in order to use the ground floor as a cafe, with a yoga/pilates/wellbeing studio planned for the first floor. The plans also indicate the extension of the frontage to form a ‘street corner feature’.

Smiths of Sheffield 15 year anniversary

Sheffield chef Richard Smith is taking a trip down memory lane next month with a nostalgic evening to celebrate fifteen years in Crosspool.

Before its current incarnation as Artisan, the Sandygate Road restaurant was previously Thyme and prior to that it originally opened as Smiths of Sheffield – or Smiths as it was known.

On Monday 13 December at Artisan, Richard will be cooking some of the favourite dishes from Smiths days, including Thai tiger prawn cake, honey and rosemary glased shank of lamb and trio of creme brulee (view the menu here – jpg, 429KB).

For more information or to make a booking call 0114 266 6096.
