Please note - after our opening on 1st November we have unfortunately had to close due to government guidelines, we are looking forward to welcoming you as soon as we are placed into tier two or below!


Welcome to Rafters at the Riverside.

Rafters was created in Sheffield in the early 90’s and has been the iconic restaurant of the steel city ever since. We took the reins in 2013 combining a love of food and service to deliver the best customer experience.

We hope you enjoy your visit to Riverside House,
Tom & Al
