Great pieces of art from a recent competition and, in a separate section, a fascinating history of Sheffield steel. Free entry but obvs donations welcome and frankly rude not to - display of this quality needs support.We visited the gallery which was free to enter and marvelled at the workmanship of the items on display. Excellent information on the items on show More...

Nice gallery, it's a great thing that we still have public resources like this. I believe the library is open to anyone who needs it. We need more spaces like this in sheffield :) More...

Keep climbing stairs until you arrive at the top! You'll recognize the art museum gift shop. From there, you'll bask in the presence of a variety of works in a beautiful setting, not at all crowded on a Saturday afternoon. Allow at least 45 minutes to really see everything briefly, more if you like to study. I went for the Edward Burne-Jones, stayed for the Pissarro, and enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the artistic heritage of Sheffield at the Graves Gallery. More...

This does have pure quality about the art that is on display. It's a place to chill and explore. It is for sure a huge learning experience for all ages. There is also a small gift shop available selling a variety of items. Also, if you need a beverage then it is connected to the Peace Gardens so it easily accessible to get food/drinks. More...

Fantastic food, the crumpets with guacamole were great, as was the hake with brown shrimp, but the standout was baked leeks with goat cheese. All the food was well beyond expectation. The ambience is light and airy, music pleasantly quiet, cheerful service. I have recommended this to all my friends. More...

Loved the decor and all the attention to detail. The staff were welcoming and topped up our water when needed without us asking. The food was good. We went for an early tea with the kids. They enjoyed their food especially the mac & cheese. I wonder whether the menu is better suited to lunch rather than tea. Will definitely go back for lunch. More...

We really enjoyed the Leonardo exhibition. It's hard to believe the drawings are over 500 years old, they are in such good condition. The Millennium Gallery itself is always with a visit, with quirky exhibits such as the Vehicle of Nature which is currently open. More...

It's a nice place to go, with a permanent exhibit on Ruskin and other changing exhibits, a shop (of course), nice public toilets and as an extension to the Winter Gardens, makes a pleasant visit. Also, now there is a new and excellent restaurant on the ground level. More...

Millennium Gallery Sheffield. Colourful, varied, buzzing. Great mixture of semi-permanent exhibitions, lively, related books and other resources to buy, and a 40-stall craft fair. We bought a super print of Rare and Racy. Can't recommend Sheffield centre too highly. More...

I only descoved the gallery cafe had changed hands recently (I used to avoid it) I have eaten lunch there3 times in the last 2 weeks, at last we have a worthy gallery cafe I just love it, and so do the friends I take along with me. A fab dining experience, the menu, the environment and the wonderful staff can’t be faltered. Thank you all at Ambulo. More...

Excellent service, lovely food but think that some dishes are over priced for the amount you have to eat. I don’t have a large appetite but was still hungry after eating the new leek & feta dish. Consider serving with bread as needed to mop up cheesey remains. Please bring back the jelly & icecream. I’m diabetic on insulin & it’s ok as not too many carbohydrates compared to other desserts.

Third time I have been to Ambulo recently. Ambulo is a lovely, airy, welcoming space underneath the Millenium Gallery. Staff are really lovely, friendly and helpful. Food is great: the falfal patty is huge and packed with loads of goodness. The sticky toffee pudding is wonderful, the sponge very light and the toffee sauce to die for. All topped off with a scoop of creamy, tasty vanilla ice-cream. I love the fruity Carpe Diem smoothy. Definitely my go to place in Sheffield city centre for a leisurely lunch. More...

Perfect pre-theatre meal. The smaller plates meant we could try a bit a bit of everything we fancied. The staff were helpful and attentive - highly recommend!

A strange place: it isn’t quite sure what it is or what it wants to be. Is it creative high-end dining? Or is it a canteen? The result is that it falls somewhere in between and doesn’t quite work. The space is lovely, but the furniture poor. It is too uncomfortable and cheap looking for the price of the food. The food is good, but confused by the new ‘sharing plates’, which are more in keeping with a high end restaurant. The service is disjointed, the staff are nervous. We were walked to our table silently, the menus placed down without comment. There were more staff cleaning tables than serving, our drinks orders were taken after 15 minutes with our food order... It’s odd. Highly instagramable, but the real life experience needs to catch-up with the Instagram one. More...

We had a really lovely meal at Ambulo on Sunday. The food was excellent as was the service. The only problem was that it was so cold in the restaurant, if this could be addressed it would be a straight 5 review.

There are often some great small exhibitions on here. Most are free . It joins on to the winter gardens which its own right acts as a landmark for the cultural center of the city. - only thing that a would say is that Henersons relish is not art . Stop putting it on post card . It lowers the tone of any institution that associates it's self with true art. More...

This is a very nicely designed, light space, noisy but not too bad near the windows at lunchtime. Fresh colour scheme and lots of space. Service was friendly, professional and helpful. The food was excellent. We shared a main course of hake with XO beurre noisette and brown shrimp which was extremely good and the sticky toffee pudding reclaimed it’s place. It was probably the best sticky toffee pudding I have ever eaten, light sponge, caramel sauce just on the right side of burnt and a delicious ice cream. High chairs available. I would definitely go back. More...

Fabulous aubergine dish just spoiled a little by the flatbread being impossible to cut. The dish was actually on top of the flatbread rather than at the side. Preferable to have the bread separate so it could be eaten with fingers!Great pricing especially on the wine.Shame the custard tarts weren't individual like pastel de natal or pasticcioti We will return for lunch and keep it on our list of regular haunts!

The fish finger sandwich was tasty but the string fries weren’t what we expected. So that meant the meal didnt seem as good value. Staff were friendly. The cafe is family friendly but I would have really struggled to breast feed on those seats /couches so we left and went home instead. Decor was really nice. More...

The menu was really interesting. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked- great flavours and all tasted very fresh. It was quite quiet for a Friday night and the minimalist decor makes it feel almost a bit clinical...needs warming up somehow- but maybe that’s just my personal taste. I would definitely go back for the food. The staff were pleasant. More...

I would recommend Ambulo with some hesitation. Unfortunately 2 main course choices were unavailable and the menu is limited anyway. We had to ask twice for the bill which isn’t so good when it’s a pre-theatre meal. I’ll try it again and hope for a better experience. More...

I saw this place was opening and I was quick to make a booking, I am always happy to support all things Sheffield. Booking was really easy to do online and when I had to change something a few hours before they were more than happy to oblige.The place looks crisp and clean and the colour scheme reminds me of being on holiday. The music is eclectic and at a good volume.Our waitress didn't seem to have a clue what was on the menu and questioned everything we placed - Can be forgiven for the first weekend but I thought they would maybe have learnt it a little. (This was my only issue with my visit).The food was fantastic - plates arrived at the tables in good time and the presentation is modern but not poncy. The portion sizes are perfect (I am yet to have an evening meal here) and the quality of the food is above the norm for Sheffield city center brunch in my opinion.The coffee is light and fruity and goes well with the 4 different dishes I managed to try. The baked goods were fresh and reminiscent of the bread and cakes your Nan would make. The mains are delicious with contemporary twists on classic dishes and fresh bursting flavours of new recipes. I look forward to visiting again and working my way through the menu at what looks to be a growing and soon to be very popular hang out. More...

Sheffield is worth visiting for several reasons but a trip to the Graves should be top of the list. A superbly comprehensive collection, a recent addition is a huge Greyson Perry tapestry. The 1930s building also holds the Public Library and shows how municipal architecture was once functional and inspiring. Perhaps a bit of restoration might not be a bad thing! More...

Not only does this little gem of a gallery have a small but wide spread of Art down the ages, but it is an education, with brief notes by each picture of the life and times of the artist. The lady at the shop reception also offered a warm welcome, and wished us goodbye on leaving. Excellent experience. More...

Nice gallery in Sheffield city centre, just off of the Winter Gardens. When you enter, you are first greeted with their extensive giftshop, filled with local goods. They have 3 main halls for exhibits - the permanent metalwork exhibit was the star for us. Very interesting to learn a bit about Sheffield's history, and there are a lot of pieces to look at.The gallery is not huge, I think we spent between 45 minutes and an hour there, but it's location means it's not exactly out of the way and it's free, so I would still recommend you pop in. It's also surrounded by a few nice restaurants and independent cafes, so I imagine it would be quite nice to visit around lunchtime. More...

Pleasant gallery/museum to kill an hour when in Sheffield. A five minute walk from Sheffield station.This is a modern building that houses various small exhibitions, not to be confused with the Graves Gallery, the city's art gallery, which is located close-by. The Millennium Gallery focuses on some visiting/special exhibits as well as on a few permanent exhibitions, like the "John Ruskin Collection" - a 19th century selection of various crafts and natural history objects, with a few watercolors and paintings thrown in for good measure, that the philosopher John Ruskin collected to create a small museum for the working class of the time, most of them being kept ignorant of history and the arts by the ruling classes. While none of those objects are in any way spectacular, one can well imagine that they must have delighted and astounded their target audience at the time.Then, there's an permanent exhibit on Sheffield's history as a centre of metal and silver manufacturing in the late 18th and 19th centuries. This is actually the most impressive part of this gallery (see photos). Photography is allowed in these permanent exhibitions.The venue is free of charge, and it's bright, modern and friendly, with a long garden gallery that you can sit in and relax from the bustle of the city. There's also a café on the ground floor, as well as a small museum shop on the first. More...

This is connected to the Winter Gardens and you can walk straight through to the galleries. Recently held the Vivian Westwood collection which attracted a few famous celebs. Has plenty of free exhibitions as well. More...

The Milennium Galleries hosts a series of small galleries with small seperate exhibitions. There are two permanant exhibitions - one about metalwork, which is great for visitors to the city as it offers a brief but informative glimpse at the importance that steel and metalwork have had on the city in the past. There is also a focus on the future of metalwork in Sheffield with some commisioned pieces. The other permanant gallery is one which houses various collections of Ruskin. This includes paintings, rocks and sculpture. There are two spaces for changing exhibitions and in the past these have included both local artwork and projects and national exhibitions like the Vivienne Westwood show earlier this year. The Millennium Galleries isn't designed like most traditional museums or galleries are, instead it acts as a shortcut through part of the city centre, and shoppers, workers and tourists can stroll through the open planned nature of the gallery into the centre of town. Other facilities in the gallery are a cafe, a small gift shop area and various interactive sculptures. I highly recommend the Millennium Galleries, especially for visitors to Sheffield as it acts as a great and interesting shortcut from the station to the shopping areas of town! More...

How can you fault something that's free? This is a great place to visit, and the exhibition seems to change every time I go! There is a pay exhibition on too often, though I've never been to one they do look good. The free exhibition though is nothing to be faulted, it's very well put together. There is a gift shop too, and is right next to the Winter Gardens too so is in a nice location. More...

Itt is lovely waliking round here looking at the various artwork from the modern to traditional. Went to see the Viven Westwood collection which was fantastic. Admission is free which is great but they do have certain exhibitions which are for a fee but still good value and worth a look. More...
