• Bill's Bar interior

    Bill’s Restaurant in Leeds

    Bill’s opened up three years ago in Leeds and it’s taken me till this year before visiting. In all honesty, I didn’t see the hype or the need to go, until now. Before, it was just another breakfast and brunch place which looked the same as all the others. Now, they’ve had a total makeover, making it a quirky space full of details to feast your eyes on in the bar area. The restaurant has what I imagine a Cuban feel to it with plantation shutters and bold colours. Aside from checking out the new interiors, my plus one and I got to try their food and drinks menu. Bar…

  • Archive Leeds

    Archive | New Independent Coffee Shop in Leeds

    The longest and most boring stretch of my bike ride to and from work is along Kirkstall Road. I can cycle for minutes thinking there’s no life to it. Behind the scenes and if you looks closer, there totally is! Most popular is likely to be Temple Coffee & Donuts. Although hidden, it’s attracting people to the area which is great. Starting to bridge its gap from city centre, on the opposite end of the road, Archive* has opened up. I spotted it from the sidelines during its development and not long after it opened up, I was excited to check it out. You bet I love the yellow, black…

  • The Deer Park Food

    Dining in Style at The Deer Park in Leeds

    The Deer Park in Leeds has had a refurbish. I’ve not been before so I can’t say how it looked previously but who cares when the new interior is this fabulous?! The Deer Park reopened a couple of weeks ago and prior to that, I was invited to check out how they had done up the place, over tasty food and refreshing cocktails* (of course). The Deer Park Interior Already from the outside you can tell that The Deer Park isn’t your regular local pub. Leading up to the entrance of the grand white building you’re met with an outdoor seating and glassed in patio. Both looking very cosy, especially…

  • Eating at Red's True Barbecue

    Meat Feast at Red’s True Barbecue in Leeds

    Let there be meat! I am a meat eater. I love meat and I’m not ashamed of saying it. Meat doesn’t have to feature in every meal I eat but I could never give it up. It’s too tasty! Funnily enough, being a meat eater n’ all, I can’t believe that I’ve never set foot in a Red’s True Barbecue restaurant until this year. Spoiler alert! – I’ll definitely be back. Red’s True Barbecue* kindly invited me and a plus one along to sample some of their new dishes as well as some classics. I was overwhelmed with the massive menu so really happy that someone had already decided what…

  • Yard & Coop Chicken Restaurant

    Yard & Coop | Buttermilk Fried Chicken Restaurant

    There’s a new chicken restaurant in Leeds. Yard & Coop* has finally opened up its doors at the bottom of Merrion Street. If you find yourself in Leeds’ “Northern Quarter” make sure to stop here for a bite to eat or if you’re on a night out, go for a couple of drinks. Nando’s is overrated, this is the hot bird place you want to queue outside for. Let me tell you why! Yard & Coop serve buttermilk fried chicken to perfection. The batter is crisp and the chicken is mouth melting good. Not a dry meat string in site. All their meals are valuabley priced. For £10 you get…
