Visited here this evening. Only one other couple in at the same time as us, but there was still a pleasant atmosphere. MI had the rump steak and my partner had the jalapeño burger. Presentation was good and so was the food. Had a brownie for dessert which was nice. My only criticism is that they didn't have cream or... More

Service was first class here and my salad was lovely. Their menu choices are quite limited though. It's not as busy as cross keys or midnight bell which means it is easier to get a table.

Absolutely superb! Bit of a strange location and hard to work out what this place is....but its a little gem! Just hope it stays open as we were the only people in there. The rump steak and trimmings were sublime highly recommended

I met my daughter on her lunch hour, we arrived shortly after 12. There were 3 tables occupied when we arrived. We ordered 2 burgers and a tuna sandwich for my youngest. Unfortunately we didn't get to have lunch together, due to the time it took for our food to arrive. At 12:55 My daughter requested her burger to be... More

Ate here as a couple on a Saturday evening. Nice location although it would be hard to stumble across without knowing it was there. We had the steak main which was really good and surprisingly cheap. Service could have been slightly faster, however the owner (super nice guy) explained that they were understaffed that evening. Besides, he did a great... More

Bought a Groupon for breakfast with drinks for two which was just shy of £10. Called in for breakfast this morning with a friend and left very satisfied... Between us we ordered Eggs Benedict and Eggs Benedict Royal (salmon used instead of ham), fresh orange and coffee. Great quality ingredients, perfect portion size and lovely fresh coffee. Fresh orange juice... More

Visited here for dinner last Friday evening. The food was excellent. My Mum and I had the risotto which was delicious and my Husband and Dad went for the beast burgers which were huge! The homemade chips were superb! We all enjoyed everything we had and it was a bargain on a Groupon voucher! We were the only customers in... More

Used the Engine house instead of paying for breakfast in the Hotel as was staying at the doubletree and breakfast was a bit pricey, breakfast was fantastic and brilliant service. Will definitely go again p.s. try the pancakes!!!!

Whenever we stay in Leeds we normally stay at the Doubletree, Hilton but always make a point of having breakfast at the Engine House. The food is always freshly cooked, reasonably priced with the staff very friendly and courteous. A little hidden gem, well worth the short walk.
