Itâs never appealing stepping out of a car in to a cold and gloomy evening when your dressed up for a night out in Sheffield.
My step-dad / childminder had dropped me off on Ecclesall Rd and I was determined to discover the botanical bar-cum-restaurant that is The Lost and Found.
Fortunately, I managed to navigate my way inside out of the rain to meet my friends Nik and Rochelle (who are also journalists but at The Star, Sheffield).
As I entered the warm and stylish haven decorated with plants I thought how much the place fits the location of being close to the Botanical Gardens, where I have fond memories of many walks, picnics and dare I say it, sunbathing sessions.
My friends had just ordered beautiful-looking cocktails which are a large part of the offering at The Lost and Found with a whole guide to what cocktail suits you.
Fellow Vegetarian Rochelle went for the Spinach and Ricotta ravioli which she said was one of the best sheâd ever had.
And Nik couldnât resist an old favourite of hers - Meatball Tagliatelle Carbonara.
The food was rich and homely, so we didnât have any room for dessert but it was the perfect excuse for a cocktail.
The waiter kindly helped the indecisive me navigate the elaborate cocktail menu and I couldnât resist the Espresso Martini (there were many more exciting concoctions which Rochelle and Nik tried but this is my all time favourite drink).
It was the perfect place to catch up as friends, take plenty of selfies, eat and drink. You could have a full night out all under one roofâ¦ so no need to venture back out into the cold until closing time.
