Trying to find all the locations of WIMPY BURGER or WIMPY BAR's in Sheffield City Centre

Have found two or three but can you remember any of the others?

Near the Castle Market I remember - is that Haymarket?

Yes

Yeah in that case most definitely. It might have been the one to last the longest too as I remember it being there for aaaaaages before closing down

Bottom of Cambridge Street, where the Damart shop is/was? I'm sure that was a Wimpy Bar at one time?

As well as hamburgers, Wimpy was the home of "Bender - The meaty Frankfurter", not the greatest choice of name, and "Shanty - The golden fish fillet".

Sadly, Shanty’s and Delta’s no longer exist on the menu, but “Bender’s are still there...

Currently, the only Wimpy for miles around is in the Rotherham Super Bowl, on Wortley Road.

Odd place to be clinging on and surprised they are still in existence, given the utter domination of McD’s and BK?

Great to see the old menu. I had a Saturday job at Wimpy at the bottom of Cambridge Street in the 60's. My job was to clear the tables and wash the dishes and on a few occasions I got to cook the burgers. Two of my daughters also had jobs there in the 80's/90's. Brings back memories....

The one on Fargate changed from being just a restaurant to a fast food takeaway similar to McDonalds / Burger King (which it later became) I remember being served a Wimpey Half Pounder by Elliot Kennedy before his music producing days :)
