Once a popular watering hole frequented by thirsty steel merchants, this handsome hotel is just a short drive from the centre of town. Set in glorious landscaped gardens overlooking the River Sheaf, and not far from the bluebell-carpeted woods of Ecclesall, the Beauchief Hotel is a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city; in fact, it's so peaceful here that you'd never know you were just four and a half miles from Sheffield.

Housed within the hotel is Christian's Restaurant, a sumptuous affair led by Christian Kent, formally of the Blue Room Brasserie in Sheffield and one of the area's leading chefs. Christian has designed a bill of fare that showcases some of Yorkshire's finest local produce, evolving with the seasons to offer diners a true taste of the region in which they are dining. Having heard glowing reports about Christian's work, we were eager to experience it for ourselves. I began with a baked crab pot, a mouth-watering concoction of fresh white crab meat, Swiss cheese and wholegrain mustard, while my companion delved into a bento box packed with tasty little delicacies - crunchy prawn toast, chicken satay, tempura prawn and duck spring rolls. We were tempted by the lobster Thermidor and the Gressingham duck with roast potatoes, watercress and orange sauce, but eventually plumped for a 24oz Chateaubriand for two - an indulgence that we simply could not pass up after spying it on the menu. It was beautifully cooked and arrived with tomato Provençal, grilled mushrooms, creamy garlic mashed potatoes and an exquisite Béarnaise sauce. Sadly, we could not manage a dessert, and finished with a couple of coffees. We left with a spring in our step, certain that we had discovered a real gem.

The restaurant offers private dining and catering for large parties, functions and weddings in the ballroom. Diners at Christian's Wine Bar will be able to enjoy an informal menu that includes sticky glazed ribs, crab cakes, salads and sandwiches. And for those who cannot bear to leave, the Beauchief Hotel offers 50 en-suite bedrooms including seven luxury suites.
