Be Transported to a Horticultural Haven in Sheffield

29 October 2018

Unveiling Sheffield’s newest dining and drinking spot, botanical-inspired The Lost & Found has taken root on Ecclesall Road and will open its doors on 16th November.

Mythical professor of horticulture Victoria B Darcy is the inspiration behind the new restaurant and bar, set to create a world of wonder for all who visit. Drawing inspiration from Sheffield’s industrial heritage and its location near the Botanical Gardens, The Lost & Found juxtaposes strong industrial elements and raw materials with softer floral features. Delicate cherry blossom and climbing roses provide the perfect backdrop to the Victoriana style furniture, in rich velvets and leathers.

The venue owners have already sowed the seeds and a daily dose of desirable discounts are sprouting up during the soft launch in November. Visit to reserve:

• 50% off afternoon tea, lunch and after-work cocktails and nibbles on Friday 9th November
• 50% off brunch and bottomless bubbles and dinner on Saturday 10th November
• 50% off Sunday roasts and lunch on Sunday 11th November

Following in the footsteps of the five legendary professors who inspired The Lost & Found’s other venues,magnificent mixologists will be shaking and stirring an array of cocktails, with twists on classics and unique floral themed creations from the bar team taking centre stage.

Packed with the mystery of its namesake, the VictoriaB Darcy is a mix of Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Cointreau, Jasmine tea syrup, apple juice and lemon juice, Blossom bitters and Ms Better’s botanical foamer, garnished with thyme and dried rose petals.

The kitchen will be plating up beautiful dishes with fresh, seasonal ingredients that perfectly accompany the drinks, with smoky grilled steaks, hand-finished pizzas and a selection of pasta, fish and meat dishes completing the menu. Afternoon tea guests share perfectly decorated sweet treats and finger sandwiches and the weekend starts with bottomless brunch, with staple dishes of Turkish eggs or buttermilk pancakes whilst sipping flutes of prosecco or Mimosas.

Something of a rebel, Victoria B Darcy came from a well-respected family of industrialists, however she followed her heart to become a professor of horticulture, as well as a keen conservationist. Despite her father’s work in the field, she began to see the effects industry and pollution were having on the environment and her study of botanicals soon became intertwined with her new-found passion for conservation. She began turning the industrial landscape into beautiful gardens and planting lush greenery wherever she could; an idea certainly ahead of its time. Escape the hustle and bustle of Sheffield and be transported to a horticultural haven on Ecclesall Road, with some of the city’s finest cocktails and seasonal dishes.
