I have been here years ago and haven't been back.....and I have no idea why. I work round the corner too. So yesterday (10th july) after a gym session we fancies nibbles wine and gossip.........

A first encounter with a very accommodating man (management I assume), who was to organize a heater for us and he was an absolute pleasure.
The wine was perfect, the bar staff friendly.
THE FOOD was impeccable, really quite lovely. Whitebait, crab on toast, olives, humous - just delicious. We are foodies and eat our a lot - it takes a lot to impress us. We were impressed!

Again the lovely gentleman (grey hair and mint green shirt), advised us about brunch, had a little chat and again was a pleasure (If I was in the F&B business restaurant - this would be the perfect choice maitre d' / manager). The young woman behind the bar was again a pleasure....
This is our new local and are going for Sunday lunch .....Sunday isnt soon enough.

I called in with colleagues and had a burger and drink. The atmosphere was great and the whole place clean. the staff were polite.

The meal was generally good - the chips especially - however the burdger bun wa a bit stale and fell apart.

The welcome at the door was great, but the bar was busy and it took about 10 minutes to order.

This smallish chain is similarly good in most of its guises around the UK. Pretty good food, served by youngish staff who are generally ok.

The Leeds offering has a great outside area opposite the railway station and is good for relaxing and people watching.

We went on a Friday night, it was heaving at the bar with a large group obviously going to a do! It was very noisy so the staff suggested to go straight to our table upstairs. Although the noise was still there(large open space) it did not effect our meal. We had scallops to start, beautiful, cooked perfectly and served with a delicious sauce. I had the 38 day steak. Fabulous piece of meat and I am fussy about meat. Served on the bone. The only disappointment was the peppered sauce, it was awful, I did mention it and the waitress agreed it wasn't pleasant. I did not wont a different sauce as the steak was so good. My wife had the half ribs, it beat her and she said it was delicious. The staff are attentive and friendly without being over the top. The Irish coffee was also good. For a chain the standard of food was excellent, it is a great building, if a little noisy when full. Not cheap with a bottle of wine but worth it, we will be returning.
