I called at 14:25 to check if there was a table for 8 and they said yes.15 mins later 6 of us arrived. We didn't enter the cafe downstairs because they directed us directly upstairs. We orded food and drinks and at that time nobody told us anything about the kitchen closing time. The food and the drinks arrived and the very kind waitress asked us if everything ok. We told her everything is ok and we just waiting for another 2 people more which she did not say anything to the kitchen about them. At that point nobody tells us when the kitchen closes. Our friends arrived after 3 pm and they were been told that the kitchen was closed and they serve only cold food (which later turned out to mean a selection of cakes) and drinks. We asked the other waitress why no body informed us about the kitchen's closing time and she said that "one of your friends he uses to work here and he knowns the closing time " and "we have a notice on the door with the kitchen opening hours" which it was hard to see. If we knew that the kitchen closing at 3 we could order some food for our friends too. The food that 6 of us ate was tasty and good value.

We decided to stop for lunch in Sheffield to catch up with a friend and tried out a Rhubarb Shed Cafe since it was so highly rated.
It definitely didn’t disappoint.
The daily specials sounded awesome and each one of us ordered from the specials.
The fish cake I ordered was just divine along with the hand cut, hand made, double fried chips.
The service was amazing and friendly.
Our friend who is local to Sheffield agreed that this was a hidden gem.
Highly, highly recommend.

We have eaten at the Rhubarb Shed a few times and always it has been most enjoyable. It is a quirky cafe with an unusual but very good menu. Most importantly the quality of the food is excellent.

I cannot recommend this place enough! I had a baby shower here recently and the food was gorgeous! The gluten free platter looked exactly the same as the regular food and was delicious! The staff couldn't do enough for us. Also had a gluten free cake from here for my 30th birthday and it was one of the best cakes I've ever tasted! 100% recommend! Amazing value too!! Thank you!

Visited for afternoon tea, for two people cost £25.90 very expensive and not worth the money for what you got! Could have a decent meal for two for that price. Very small sandwiches, and made to look good but nothing special as other reviews have stated. I expect the profits for this place are huge due to the overpricing. Not even a very nice place to eat to pay that much money!
Not well decorated, in the middle of nowhere and claustrophobic. Our afternoon tea was wrapped in cling film waiting for when we got there on the main desk!
Woman looked very miserable when we arrived didn’t even smile or say hello when we walked in.
Sorry but a great let down!
