Cutlery Works Sheffield – The Largest Independent Food Hall in Northern England

Cutlery Works Sheffield – Kelham Island 

Cutlery Works Sheffield – The Largest Independent Food Hall in Northern England

The Cutlery Works Sheffield opened in November 2018 and had a hugely successful first year. The 14,000 sq ft Rutland Cutlery Works building in Kelham Island is a huge hive of food and drink businesses, with 100 jobs created throughout the venue and giving independent entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their offerings.

The exciting new addition to Sheffield’s uber trendy Kelham Island, comes from The Milestone Group behind the city’s renowned restaurants The MilestoneCraft & Dough and INC Rooftop Bar. Cutlery Works is a mix of permanent and semi-permanent food and drink vendors, inspired by the hawker markets of South East Asia, with influences from Lisbon, New York and Barcelona. It brings a unique dining experience to the people who live, work and enjoy visiting the area. In its first year, Cutlery Works has seen three vendor changes from its opening line up, with further additions in the pipeline.

Their opening weekend saw thousands through the doors and also featured on BBC Look North.

The Milestone Group have worked hard to select a range of traders, each with their own exciting concept to offer something for everyone’s tastes. Vendors are also able to put on solo or collaborative events with local breweries, artists and makers, with the large communal spaces in the building also used for workshops and classes.

Cutlery Works Sheffield Traders include;

  • Konjo – brought to you by critically-acclaimed Joro Restaurant. Serving skewers, snacks and small plates, expect fire-fuelled flavour with all dishes being cooked over a Japanese Konro BBQ Grill.
  • Base Pizza Co – bringing you the best of Naples with their incredible thin pizza bases and delicious contemporary toppings.
