“A hidden gem for lunch”
Review of The Faversham

The Faversham
Ranked #1,269 of 1,888 Restaurants in Leeds
Price range: US$8 - US$13
Cuisines: Pub, Gastropub
Description: The Fav bar and kitchen is the soul of the venue. Set in the intimate surroundings of the Fav Conservatory and Victorian lounge, we also have a large adjoining terrace for alfresco drinking and dining when the British weather permits. For us, it is all about serving up flavoursome food and offering a well-curated selection of drinks in a welcoming and vibrant environment. We are passionate about what we serve to you. All of our food is homemade and fresh, and we work with local suppliers to make sure we are using the best ingredients. We only use free-range or ethically farmed produce and avoid air freighting unless absolutely necessary - even our chorizo is from Yorkshire! We love a good hop and our bar is stocked with a diverse range of craft beers and ales from a rotating selection of brewers. Most recently we've stocked the likes of Five Points Brewing Company, Yorkshire Brewery, Magic Rock and East London Brewery. All of our coffee is supplied by local espresso bar, La Bottega Milanese, who use ethically and sustainably sourced coffee beans roasted right here in Yorkshire. All the coffee is Direct Trade. This alternative trading model delivers better quality coffee than fair trade and pays a higher wage to farmers. In addition, we also have a variety of food, drink and music events taking place in the conservatory.

Until several recommendations from friends I hadn't considered visiting Faversham due to its perception of being a bar/ night venue. Despite this they clearly have tried to revamp its image with a great terrace and atmospheric conservatory restaurant. The menu is seasonal with a good variety between sandwiches, burgers, salads and platters (amongst others) and well suited to it's now popular lunchtime trade. In addition I've also dined here in the evening to try its Burger and Drink deal which is far more reasonable and superior to any pub grub.

On my most recent visit I went for the meat platter and certainly wasn't disappointed; although a salad was required to bulk out the meal a little. There was a nice selection of cured meats, pate and most significantly an outstanding pulled pork bon-bon (I would go back and have this again just for the bon-bon). The salad was also great with a lovely summer dressing. There's a large selections of ales, ciders, wines and coffees too which is a nice bonus.

An area of improvement would be a dessert menu or even homemade cakes to go with the coffee.

Overall a great spot for lunch and weather permitting a lovely suntrap terrace to enjoy too

The Faversham is overall a lovely experience. The location is not ideal and a little difficult to find, but once one site it has a lovely outside area which is prefect for summer. Everything from the lighting to the music makes it a really warm an relaxing place.

The food is very tasty and is very reasonably priced and it's always nice to see a smaller menu which is altered more frequently.

On every other occasion I have been the food has been absolutely outstanding and cannot fault it at all.... until now. The only small tings to report is the Fettuccini was bland and the chef forgot to take the s#*t sack out of the prawns so just watch out for that if your planning on going.

Really small things which just let the place down... jus needs fine tuning very slightly.

Visited The Faversham for my birthday. Beautifully crafted building with an amazing outdoor teepee during Christmas period. The food was the best I have tasted in a very long time, freshly made with precise attention to detail and well considered menus offering fine dining to a standard I really never expected prior to visiting. The presentation of the food only added to the list of positives. Combined with excellent value for money, a simple and effective wine list, pleasant staff and a relaxed atmosphere, this restaraunt is certainly top of my list in the Leeds area now.
