A proper family-run butchers with extensive meat and fish counters, deli and a few extra surprises – while you’re picking up some choice cuts for tea, you can grab a few beers from their range of craft ales. Simmonite has been around for more than 70 years – opened first as a market stall in 1946 by owner Carl’s grandfather, and it’s still very much a family affair. Almost everyone who works at Simmonite is related in some way, and it makes for a really friendly atmosphere. We’re really lucky to have had it on Division Street for the last five years – and if you haven’t had chance to pop in before, make the extra effort, you’ll thank us later. Simmonite’s meat and fish are some of the best quality to be found in Sheffield – good value too. It cooks all its cooked meats, pies and pasties onsite, and it’s always trying new things. The pulled pork pasty is a must-try. It’s also a firm favourite at lunchtime too – and with such a range of fresh hot and cold sandwiches and wraps, jackets and pies, it’s easy to see why. The world needs more independent shops like Simmonite – and once you try it, you’ll never look back.
