Wagyu specialist restaurant chain Solita is opening its seventh site today in Sheffield.
Dubbed ‘the home of the Wagyu burger’, the operator already runs sites across northern England, in Manchester, York, Harrogate, Beverley and Hull.
Solita’s new West One, Broomhall home in Sheffield will seat 150 covers and serve 100% British Wagyu beef, including its burgers, steaks, hotdogs and beef dripping. Bred specifically for its high marbling, this premium meat is known for its texture and flavour.
The chain aims to combine quality meat with a casual dining atmosphere, with a menu also including wings and cocktails.
The beef is all UK bred and zero import to cut down on environmental impact. Parent company, Shoot the Bull Group, aims to source locally where possible and strives to only use UK produce.
CEO of Shoot the Bull, Chris Harrison, said: “Here at Solita, we’ve always loved Sheffield as a city, and it’s been a goal of ours to bring ‘the home of the Wagyu burger’ here.
“When we heard of the opening of the site on West One, Broomhall we knew it was the perfect opportunity to make that dream a reality and create Solita Sheffield.
“Solita has grown from two sites to seven, since 2020, and we’re showing no signs of slowing down. We hope that the people of Sheffield love Solita just as much as fellow northerners who have been enjoying our new openings.”
