The Dunsforth Public House and Dining is a new venture from Paul Cunliffe (former Head Chef of Harvey Nichols Leeds) and his family. We pride ourselves on top quality locally sourced produce, fantastic wine and excellent service. We offer space to enjoy a drink in our welcoming bar or if the weather is nice why not sit out on our patio? Or sample our a la carte and prix fixe menus in the dining room. We now offer a Classics menu including modern takes on some pub favourites. We also now offer a Fresh bread takeaway service. Place an order before 9pm monday to friday and your bread will be available from 10am the following morning.
