True Love's will be focusing on sustainable locally sourced meats, cheeses, pickles, wines, beers, ales, and other produce forming great content for our eat in/takeaway Delicatessen. Therefore being as far as possible, a Yorkshire charcuterie.
And so leads us to tell you the rather more tenuous link, a more sinister tale of the Butchers named True Love's who used the River Sheaf to dispose of offal, hence 'True Love's Gutter'.
What ever your personal interpretation the romantic ideas and notions that bely our offering we basically serve meat, beers and wines, offering small plates and sharing platters for all.
Honest, humble and independent we hope to serve our local communities, whist promoting the fantastic produce of Sheffield and broader Yorkshire. For those here for a mere sojourn we welcome you all and look forward to inviting you in and letting you take a piece of our beloved Sheffield and Yorkshire away for that is our Truest of Love's.
True Love's name pays homage to the history of the area, a Sheffield poem True Love's Gutter, which featured in a song written by Richard Hawley and also embraces the comical side in true Yorkshire wit - True Love's a generation old family butchers of the 1800's and their supposed use of the River Sheaf.
You remember the sinks in the midst of the streets; When the rain poured in torrents, each passenger greets
His fellow with " What a wide channel is here, We shall all be drown'd I'm greatly in fear. For lately two lovers were sat on a rail On the edge of the sink fondly telling their tale, When the flood wash'd them down in each others' embrace, For no longer the lovers could sit in that place; And hence "True Love's Gutter", the name that was given, Because by the flood those two lovers were driven.
James Wills 1827
