Situated only 15 minutes from Sheffield, Chesterfield, and the Peak District you’d be hard pressed not to find something to do near to the village of Mosborough. Moreover, Mosborough Hall Hotel is the perfect base to do it all from.
Words by Rachel McAlley
Steeped in history this super modern hotel was originally a 12th Century manor house, and the old building itself is as quaint as you would expect. Now a Best Western Plus hotel, with all the amenities to enjoy from a 4* property it is surrounded by pretty green space and plenty of tall old trees.
Mosborough Hall Hotel
The gardens are a tranquil space to relax with a drink with friends after a hard day at work or a weekend away. The new bar extension is floor to ceiling glass giving you the best views of the gardens and terraced seating area. Bathed in sunlight during the day and bright neon lights at night the bar is a hub of activity.
The hotel rooms offer a home away from home feel with comfortable bed, dressing table, excellent storage space, and fresh crisp white bed linen. Equally, complimentary tea, coffee, and biscuits come as standard, with a few little added touches.

Speaking of dining, our writer enjoyed the brand new Tasting Menu at Mosborough Hall Hotel at Darcy’s Brasserie. The 7-course menu, uniquely created by head chef Alex Fretwell and his team was an interesting mix of high-end produce and comfort food.
Firstly an amuse-bouche of smoked chicken roulade served with Caesar and Parmesan or a roast red pepper toast with goat’s cheese curd and truffle was on offer. Whilst we waited there was a choice of yoghurt sourdough with smoked beef butter or yoghurt sourdough with blue cheese butter.
Secondly our starter was glazed goats cheese, pickled beets, shallot puree and crisps. Then we dove into the main course, which included Mallard duck with dripping potato, carrot, kale and maple jus, and for the veggie it was textures of wild mushroom risotto, Parmesan, and truffle oil.
Thirdly we enjoyed a pre-dessert of lemon and lime meringue pie, followed by the hearty dessert of spiced date sponge, caramel sauce, toffee popcorn and yoghurt ice cream.
We ended with a cheese course stacked with local Yorkshire cheeses, Henderson’s relish chutney, crackers, quince jelly, and fruitcake. Finally to finish we enjoyed a cup of coffee, which should have been served with macaroons, but sadly they never appeared, not that we needed them due to being so full!
Book a Room
If you’re looking for something special then the 7-course taster menu is well worth a try and notably at only £45 per person it’s quite a bargain.
We ended the night in the bar; it was a lovely end to a great evening. After watching a little TV and having a good sleep in our room we ventured back down to the restaurant for breakfast, and then it was time to check out and leave Mosborough Hall Hotel.
It was a peaceful night away from home in a lovely hotel with good food and comfortable room.
Would we stay at the Best Western Plus Sheffield Mosborough Hall Hotel again, indeed we would. Rooms start at just over £100 for a mid-week double room for 1-night, breakfast is an extra charge, and if you are looking for a specific dinner, bed and breakfast package the hotel do offer this option.
