We have been planning to go to Smoke since it opened in Sheffield, and when we saw an offer for it on the ‘NowThen’ mobile app, we just couldn't resist it any more. The Now Then app aims to promote and support local, independent businesses in Sheffield via promotional offers and discounts. There are a range of offers available, from shopping and eating out, to chiropractics, yoga and oven cleaning! It’s definitely well-worth downloading =D
We opted to share the Hot Dog and Brisket Butty, both of which were served with chips, a gerkin, red cabbage slaw and ketchup. The Hot Dog also came with sweet mustard. On the table, a bottle of sweet and smoky BBQ sauce was provided - this was awesome and took a lot of restraint not to take the rest of the bottle home! =P We also opted to share two sides; the Pit Beans were smoked mixed beans with peppers and onions in the sauce too, whilst our Side Salad included lettuce, grated carrot, peppers, radishes and spring onions, all in a light dressing.
Emily: I went for the Smores, a buttery biscuit-cookie, topped with melted marshmallows and chocolate. This was very gooey, yummy and super-sweet, although could have been nicer if warm.
The meat was awesome for both mains and we will probably end up trying to 'borrow' the bottle of BBQ sauce next time we visit =P Also very impressed with the little touches and extras that we didnt expect. It was just the desserts that let it down a bit.
Ambience and Service: 8.0
Very prompt and friendly service, but still weird to use phones for orders - they could maybe use a stylus or something to make it look a bit more formal? Also a very open, light and warm atmosphere, helped by the rustic furnishings
Value for Money: 8.5
Emily and Tom rate this as Easy-going and Tender (meat =P)
