The restaurant and events venue in Brincliffe Hill, Brincliffe, which chef David Baldwin and his wife Pauline took over in 1980, closed in 2018. The venue had been famous for its top-quality food and being the place to go for a special occasion or event. It’s been a favourite of charities, companies and sports teams as the go-to place for their big occasions as well as families and groups of friends.
David Baldwin’s big personality lit up the place and many Sheffielders paid tribute to him on the sad news of his death at home in Dore, aged 80, last year.
