Brand new restaurant and bar due to open at Fox Valley

12 February 2019

McGilveray’s – a brand new family run restaurant and bar – is due to open at Fox Valley in north Sheffield next month.

The new restaurant will focus on “good food, done well” with some classic British favourites on the menu as well as a great selection of beers and wine in a stylish and casual environment. 

The restaurant and bar is being launched by Sheffield husband and wife team Alan and Wendy McGilveray. The pair have a wealth of knowledge of restaurant and hotel management and are looking forward to bringing their new concept to north Sheffield.

The family are currently transforming the 2,147 sq. ft. unit next to Ponti’s Italian Kitchen at Fox Valley to create the new casual and stylish restaurant which will have an attractive outdoor seating area and space for 60 covers inside.

The restaurant team are recruiting for staff with plans to launch the new McGilveray’s Restaurant and Bar in time for Mother’s Day weekend.

Wendy has years of experience working in commercial kitchen design, and Alan is the former Executive Chef for the Marriott Hotel chain where he was awarded two AA Rosettes, more recently he has worked as a food consultant for a number of large restaurant and bar operators such as M&B and Cameron’s Brewery.

The couple plan to focus on good local food with delicious dishes; including steak and fish and chips as well as vegan and vegetarian dishes. Starters will include pate, charcuterie meats and cheeses as well as specials including scallops and black pudding.

Alan said: “We are passionate about good food and quality produce and that will definitely be on the menu at McGilveray’s Restaurant and Bar. This is a family business and we really want that to come through and to share our love of good food with our customers.

“Fox Valley is a great location for us, this part of north Sheffield is becoming an increasingly popular choice for eating out and we are excited to be opening our first venture here.”

James Shepherd, Estates Director at Dransfield Properties, which owns and manages Fox Valley, said: “Wendy and Alan’s passion for what they do is clear to see and we are delighted they have chosen Fox Valley as the location for their new restaurant and bar.

“Both the design of the restaurant and the menu look fantastic and will bring something really different to the centre, we’d like to wish them all the very best with their new venture.”
