The city’s pub, café and restaurant owners have done everything they can to keep their establishments going, assisted by Government measures such as business grants and the furlough scheme.
The pandemic has forced some businesses to close, and has accelerated the restructuring and down-sizing of others.
These are the businesses that won't reopen in Sheffield when lockdown rules ease on Monday, May 17.
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a digital subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor
1. The Devonshire Cat
The Abbeydale Brewery pub did not reopen following the first national lockdown, with owners blaming a trend of falling footfall over a number of years and the "devastating impact" of the Covid-19 pandemic on the viability of the business.
2. The Peacock Inn
The Peacock Inn closed its doors for good in October 2020. Bidding farewell to its loyal customers, a spokesperson for the pub said: "We are very sad to be saying bye to everyone, a big thank you to all our locals and regulars who have showed us the upmost support during these unfortunate times we will miss you all and wish you the best, we hope you all stay safe."
3. Gerties café
Gerties Cafe on South Road in Walkley announced in July 2020 that it would not be reopening after the easing of lockdown measures
4. Las Iguanas
Las Iguanas in West One closed last summer, after its parent company entered administration. A Casual Dining Group spokesperson confirmed at the time that 20 jobs would be lost but its Meadowhall branch would stay open.
