There’ll be nothing fishy about JH Mann’s all-day dining menu in new Castlegate food hall
Sheffield fish monger JH Mann has today been announced as the latest addition to Sheffield’s newest food hall Kommune, in the former Castle House building.
The popular fish shop has a long and proud Sheffield history, stretching back nearly 100 years! Current owner Christian Szurko took over the business in Hillsborough 13-years ago and opened the Sharrow Vale branch around 10-years ago.
More recently, JH Mann have branched out into serving up hot food over lunch times in their Sharrow Vale shop and the great success of this has lead them into a new adventure within Kommune.
Christian Szurko said: “we’ve been wanting to open something for a while now. We both have experience as chefs so when the chance to be part of Kommune came up we definitely couldn’t say no!”
The menu at Kommune will be a little different to their current offering, turning their unique fresh fish concept of straight from market to plate into a more adventurous all-day dining menu.
From house cured and smoked salmon for breakfast to a quick fish finger sarnie for lunch, and a more elaborate evening menu of courses including fresh oyster dishes, they’ve got all fish-based aspects covered, and of course, they will continue to share their knowledge by talking customers through what they are eating and where it’s from.
Co-owner Scott said: “we believe what we are bringing to Kommune is unique to Sheffield. There is nowhere in the city centre that solely focuses on top quality fresh fish and seafood so we want to fill this gap.
“Being part of Kommune is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our current offering into something more diverse.”
JH Mann will join another Sharrow Vale favourite Pom Kitchen, as well as Hop Hideout, Shoot the Bull, The Depot Bakery, Fat Hippo, and Chaat Cart in the new Castlegate foodie destination, and with the sale of The Old Town Hall announced last week, it’s exciting times for the area.
