“Great food, big portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a very cosy little bar serving excellent food in generous portion sizes. Good selection of beers on tap and in bottles, and some very good malt whiskeys. Highly recomended.

“Excellent place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I looked this place up on our way into Leeds from London. The food and drink are very good quality and value for money. Friendly atmosphere and good service are both present . The owner offered plenty of information about the place and the chef can be seen working hard in a small kitchen , quite amazing really! Will revisit next time we are in Leeds.

“Excellent cuisine and real cask ales”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Raff excels in a tiny kitchen, you wouldn't believe what he produces in such a small space. Friendly and warm with a personal touch, and you can get a decent pint, be it a Leeds Brewery pint or from further afield.
