About The Mowbray

118 Mowbray Street, Neepsend, Sheffield
South Yorkshire, S3 8EN

The Mowbray is a luxuriously historic and marvellously unique wedding venue in Sheffield. We are independent, family run and operated - opening in September 2018 after a 3 year restoration of a crumbling, derelict building from 1889. 

We are made up of 4 spaces - the main feasting hall, a British garden on the roof terrace for native blooms, herbs, drinks and photographs, our kitchen and the bar - an 8ft antique slate clad beauty held together by original brass screws stocked with local gins, craft ales and a beautiful wine selection. 

Luxury for us means beauty, attention to detail, provenance, thoughtfulness and beautiful touches. We burn our own ‘essence’ in each room inspired by our roof garden and the past lives of the building and sometimes guests give it as favours or gifts. Guests love our temptingly tactile, 20ft tall ‘Mowbray Green’ velvet drapes which can be drawn or left open for some magnificent natural light displays and our 2 metre wide chandelier made from reclaimed 1940’s glass bricks which gives the most perfect twinkling light for first dances and the most romantic of photography. 

We are famous for our styling and stories behind even the smallest item - from florals through to Sheffield cutlery for your wedding feast. We look after everything from venue styling, table settings, floral abundance, food and consultations, bespoke cocktails and carefully curated champagne, wines and beers to create weddings and parties with soul. We encourage you to luxuriate in the knowledge that time and style are on your side and we will attend to the smallest of details with creativity, flair and an understanding of simple beauty, elegance and a sprinkle of glamour.

Venue Service

By Heather & Gav, on 16 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2019

We had absolute confidence in The Mowbray team from day one and the way they pulled off our evening wedding party did not disappoint. We would not change a single thing about our wedding day and they did an incredible job, from the venue styling, facilitating surprises for our guests to the amazing food. We would do it all over each month if we could and can’t thank the team enough for everything they have done. If you want a wedding done right, do it at The Mowbray

The best venue in Sheffield!
Venue Service

By Jonny & Chelsea, on 13 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

As soon as we stepped foot in The Mowbray, we knew we'd found the perfect venue for our wedding reception, it really was breathtaking! Lucy & the team did not disappoint; the venue styling was more than I ever imagined, the service on the day was first class and the food was divine. The whole day was fabulous, from start to finish. If only we could do it all over again!

We couldn't have imagined or wished for a more!

We had a really relaxed approach to our wedding and by relaxed, I mean completely indecisive and vague, but The Mowbray/Chimney House team just 'got us'. We had our wedding ceremony at The Chimney House followed by a few drinks and then walked round to The Mowbray for our wedding reception. We could not fault the preparation, guidance and seamless support provided by the team; we didn't have to worry about a single thing. The Chimney House wedding reception room was decorated in a laid back and subtle but stylish way with flowers to match my bouquet and this was a theme which carried on at The Mowbray. The favours and confetti were laid out on the chairs, and our guests had drinks and Mowbray-made brownies served to them. Back at The Mowbray our custom cocktails were ready on arrival, and we were presented with our beloved espresso martinis! We opted for a relaxed reception without a formal sit down meal and speeches; instead, we chose the Yorkshire Grazing table which was beautifully presented and our guests are still raving about the food! We felt truly special on the day and could not recommend the venues enough for couples looking for a somewhere unique, with its own identity and the ability to cater for all types of weddings/events from the traditional to the relaxed. We wish we could do it all again...maybe when we hit a significant milestone!

Best day of our lives!

Thank you to Lucy and the team at the Chimney House and Mowbray, from start to finish they were simply wonderful to work with and made planning a wedding from the opposite side of the world so much easier. The venues themselves are absolutely stunning, and the perfect backdrop for the best day of your life. Every mouthful of food, from the fist canape right through to our booze busters at 9pm was scrumptious, I wish I could eat it all again. The only thing that would have made our day even better, is if we could stop time and do it all over again.

Epic wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Lisa and Joe Hudson, on 10 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

We fell in love with the Mowbray from the minute we viewed it and our wedding reception did not disappoint. Lucy and the team catered to our needs and any queries we had were answered promptly. The details were divine with beautiful flowers and decor. The food was incredible and many of our friends and family have said the wedding banquet was the best they had experienced! We cannot recommend this wedding venue enough!

Unbeatable venue!
Venue Service

By Sam and Christina, on 19 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2019

Choosing The Mowbray for our wedding venue was the best decision we could have ever made! The restored building is beautiful. It is a venue that is vintage yet modern, plus romantic and luxurious all in one place, which makes it magical for a wedding. The team is first class, they are really there to make the day personal and unique to us, they are organised, professional and super friendly. It was a delight to organise it all with Lucy and Sally, both just so lovely! The kitchen is aaaaamazing, the food at our wedding still gets talked about by our friends and family, the chefs are very talented, the food and variety in the Laden table menu was a highlight! (cater to special dietaries etc too) The Mowbray felt very much us and true to what we wanted for our big day, it was also warm and welcoming, everyone felt at home at our wedding, so we are forever thankful that The Mowbray exists. Gracias ;)

Ideal Wedding Venue

By Mary Edmonds & Eamon Staunton, on 04 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

We had our wedding reception at The Mowbray and it was gorgeous. The team at The Mowbray took care of everything — tastefully styling the venue, dressing the banquet tables, creating bespoke cocktails and providing our guests with a truly memorable wedding breakfast. Their attentive yet relaxed approach enabled us to focus on enjoying ourselves and the reception ran seamlessly. For a truly eclectic and sophisticated wedding venue you need look no further.
