Chips were under-cooked, no hot sauce as stated in the menu. No side for my cousin even though I had the same dish and I had a side. Chicken was rock hard on the outside, soft on the inside. Couldn't eat it, disgusting. Would never eat there again, as I left hungry.
Friendly staff, rubbish food, and if you order what's on the menu they ignore the selection you request e.g. sauce side.
I read the review on here and booked a Sunday lunch for 8 for my best friends and their partners. The venue has all the right ideas, fresh flowers, nice decor etc... but that is lost when you sit down to eat.
We ordered about 2PM and had already been told that there was no lamb, one portion of pork left and one portion of melon left. The melon came out and it was slimy, brown and looked like it was from a tin! We sent it back and received a free drink for it and an exchange.
The main then came about 30 minutes later even though the restaurant was far from busy (good job really as there were only 2 staff on, including the manager). I had the risotto that was as tasteless and bland as they come, I actually had to season it myself! The burger, although looked home-made was golf ball shaped and the chips cold. Sunday dinner was wilted and grim, the potato looked like what we had a school! We all ate as much as we felt polite and then moved back to the lounge.
We ordered some champagne and they only had the £70 Bolly or £50 Verve, said no to both to which the manager gave us the verve for £30! We all drank up and left (hungry and slightly disheartened) that a great afternoon out was just a bit bland. Service was OK, just didn't have the food to back it up.
Once again, nowhere good to get a Sunday dinner in Sheffield.

I've known about the Dam House for as long as I can remember, as I grew up in the area. But having moved away from Sheffield nearly a decade ago, I revisited with my wife for her big 3-0. I thought it was time to give it a go, turns out that an old college mate is now the bar manager, not seen him for 11 years, names recognised, normal service resumed. On the night we went it wasn't very busy, but that means nothing at the moment. The welcome from the staff was very warm and friendly. It was my friend's night off though. My wife and I both had a drink at the bar before we took our table. A bottle of house white with online voucher. We were not rushed into ordering, which is good because the menu was just too good to choose from.
I had the king prawns with chilli (5 cooked to perfection). My wife chose crab and pea risotto, very moist, full of flavour and not small.
We both selected the lamb rump with minted sauce accompanied by buttered baby vegetables. HUGE! I wanted rare, Nicki wanted medium, and no surprise that we got just what we wanted, melt in the mouth.
After a short rest we had dessert, mine was bread and butter sticky toffee pudding, (my two favourite desserts in one) moist and filling. My wife had the custard tart, creamy and rich.
I couldn't help myself but went for cheese and biscuits, I've never seen so many biscuits, good selection of cheese, sweet blue, port salut and one I cant remember. Coffee wasn't needed.
The bill only came to £55 for both of us, which overall for the quality we had was excellent value. I will recommend this restaurant to anybody any time.
We had spare time the following Sunday after a day with family, so we went back to get a quick bite to eat. My mate was working that day, the same warm welcome, relaxed atmosphere. Quick bite to eat turned into 2 courses each.
Nicki had tian of smoked chicken, I had the Yorkshire pudding and gravy. Again both were to the same high standard.
The mains were roast rib of beef, two thick slices of rare beef and the same Yorkies as the starter. The gravy was just so good.
We were taken care of by Richard, and if he reads this, cheers mate!
Two visits and both get 100% for atmosphere, service and quality.

Six of us including children went at 6PM midweek and took advantage of the very good value £15 per head for three courses, midweek offer. The welcome was warm and the food wonderful. I had ribeye steak and I can honestly say it was the best steak I've ever eaten.
I can't understand why people torture themselves eating at Artisan (had my worst eating out experience ever there) with this treasure on the doorstep. The puds were to die for too!
Initially hard to find as it's along a cobbled, one-way side street and only signposted once you are there.
There was no atmosphere, possibly due to lack of customers, but the staff were nice. The food was expensive, i.e. just over £9 for a steak sandwich, side salad and J2O juice. I ordered a very well done steak, which came rare and got returned. What I found in my side salad (!!!!) sent me returning the salad back faster than the speed of light and cancelling the sandwich altogether!!! I got a refund and the offer of a free drink for my friend and me.
My friend paid £5.50 for a small wrap that was only 1/2 filled with cream cheese, salmon and mackerel.
There is some parking, but I doubt that there would be enough for the evening clientele. There is a patio and view over the boating lake.
