Ye Olde Mustard Pot
Mortimer Road, Midhopestones, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S36 4GW
The quirkily named Ye Olde Mustard Pot really does hit all the right notes when it comes to food. This wonderful old English country inn dates back to the 17th century and oozes character and period charm. The inn is found in the little hamlet of Midhopestones, close to Sheffield and is steeped in history. Formerly an old farmhouse, it was transformed into a charming inn, country pub and restaurant in 2001 and has flourished ever since. The team at Ye Olde Mustard Pot have certainly got it spot on when it comes to the menu, a wonderful collection of classic British dishes using fabulously fresh and seasonal produce from the local area. Start with a wood pigeon breast served with bacon and black pudding salad to really get things going and follow with a homemade steak and ale pie with hand cut chips, peas and gravy. The huge Yorkshire puddings filled with either sausage, meat or vegetables is a signature dish of the house whilst the Mustard Pot ploughman’s lunch is a must try during the summer time. Children have their own special menu and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. Situated in the edge of the Peak District, the surrounding countryside of Ye Olde Mustard Pot is spectacular. Sheffield is just half an hour away by car as is Leeds, making the inn a great place to stop by for a bite to eat whilst out exploring the local area. Family run, Ye Olde Mustard Pot offers a superb service whilst meals are well-priced and generous in size.
