On a cold winters’ afternoon, we arrived at The Devonshire in the centre of the city for some warmth and a hearty roast. The elegant décor inside is in keeping with the Georgian townhouse The Devonshire has made home. The walls are charmingly decorated with old fashioned framed photographs and empty bottles and dressed for the season with festoon lights.We had a reserved seat by the tinselled window, looking out on the bustling Devonshire Street. When we got inside, Christmas crackers were on the table waiting to be pulled, which was a nice touch.Reviews online say they do ‘the best roast dinners in Sheffield’, and as roast dinner connoisseurs we were keen to test this out as thoroughly as possible.

Shopkeepers, pubs and cafes in Diss have named their top priorities for beating the high-street blues.Parking problems, cleanliness, a lack of local support, buskers, absentee landlords, long leases, uneven pavements, and business rates are all on the list of grumbles.But one thing unites the town’s traders from the bottom of Mere Street to the top of the Heritage Triangle - and that’s signs.Signs both welcoming people to the town - directing them around - and also advising them where best to park.Cleanliness was also high on the list and making a united effort.Nicola Ready, who runs Flories clothing and accessories store on Market Place, which sits on the border of both Mere Street and the Heritage Triangle, said: “When I opened my shop in September last year, people were lovely and seemed really pleased that another shop had opened.“I wanted to make it look as attractive as I could, so put out some table and chairs, some flowers, made sure the pavement was … [Read more...] about What traders in Diss think would help beat the high street blues
