Beef Ribs Challenge at the Common Room 6

This is a user submitted challenge. Thanks Andrew for the tip off.

The Common Room in Sheffield reopened this summer after a refurbishment. They now have an extensive ribs menu. On there is a challenge.


There is not much of an indication to the size of this challenge. At £40 though, its big. I went in and ordered a large Beef Long Rib from the menu and that was huge.


I didn’t manage it. That was due to the fattiness of the ribs too. A lot of fat on beef ribs. Its pub me off trying the challenge. I’d need to have a picture of the thing before I ordered it.

If you want to have a try though, here are the details. At the time of writing the challenge is undefeated.

1st Floor (above Forum Shops)
127-129 Devonshire Street
S3 7SB

If you want a large burger, they do a

Whole Damn Farm Burger.
4oz beef patty, Southern fried chicken breast, monterey jack cheese, pulled beef rib, pulled pork, bacon, onion ring, chopped jalapeños, lettuce, tomato,
burger sauce & BBQ sauce with portions of house fries & sweet potato fries too. For an extra £1.50 you can an extra patty. Ends up being a monster burger and very filling.

    i was going to attempt the common rib challenge, and i just wanted to know how you would compare it to the dam house burger challenge. i completed the dam house challenge in 20 mins with enough space for dessert and dinner afterwards. Do you think you could help me out please?

      I haven’t done the ribs challenge. I ordered the ribs off the menu and didn’t manage that. The ribs challenge is a lot bigger. A kilo of fries is a lot. If you look at the WTF challenge, I did 1.2kg of fries was loads

      Well done on the Dam house challenge. Not many people finish that.

    thanks for the reply, so the ribs in the picture you posted are the same size as in the challenge, just with the above kilo of chips?

      I don’t know. Probably bigger as they need 48 hours notice. You can just walk in to pub and order the beef ribs in the picture.

    finally got round to trying the challenge, and thankfully i finished it or i would have been 40 quid worse off! the manager was really hie and gave me a free milkshake swell has 5 free drink tokens. quick question, do you think that doing the ultimate burger challenge at Relish would be doable, since i had completed this challenge?
    cheers again,

      I think you’ll be able to manage the ultimate burger challenge. Its about as hard as the Dam House burger so should ease it.

      If you want, take some pictures and do a write up, and I’ll put it on the main blog.
