New steak and seafood restaurant Clubhouse opens in Sheffield

A new steak and seafood restaurant called Clubhouse, from the Pointing Dog group, has opened in Sheffield.

Open since 7 May, the 200-seater venue is housed in a former centre for Polish ex-combatants of WWII, which had been on the site since 1953. The building has since been renovated to the cost of £1.5m, and now includes a modern kitchen, 200-capacity bar, 50-seat outside space and private dining rooms.

Focusing on steak and seafood, the restaurant will use a wood-fired grill fuelled with elder, applewood and charcoal. The menu includes choices such as fillet steak, a whole beef joint, grilled native lobster, soft shell crab, and the group's "signature" dessert, chocolate cake in a jar (pictured).

Yorkshire chef Christopher Lawrie is head chef, having begun his chef career in establishments such as the Ritz London and Stovell's in Surrey, before becoming a food trend forecaster for Fairoak Foods for brands such as Asda and Whole Foods.

Following in the building's "club" tradition, the restaurant will issue free memberships of the place to anyone who requests it, while the restoration aimed to be sympathetic to the building and location, and has retained the wood panelling and grand entrance.

The restaurant is the third site for the group, which also runs restaurants in Bakewell, and Manchester suburb Cheadle Hulme.

Head of Pointing Dog, Neil Lawrence, said that the restaurant had worked with farmers, butchers and local suppliers to place emphasis on the produce and make the restaurant a "dynamic new addition to the Sheffield dining scene".
