“worth a visit”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I have enjoyed all my visits to the alchemist although it is very expensive, we paid £10.00 for one cocktail. Also the girl with the tatoo's all over her arms is great at making cocktails but I would suggest she needs to brush up on customer service we found her attitude poor when we asked her a couple of questions.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a nice place to spend a few hours, the cocktails are great and top quality and look good, the food was nice and again is presented very well although a little expensive for what it is. The only down side was you felt cramped in when eating, the tables are very close together but once sat down very comfortable. If your going for lunch get there early, say before 12.30 as it get's busy, we got a table straight away at 12.30 but on the way out many people waiting for tables.

“So glad it lived up to what I'd hoped!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Booked for my sister's birthday, delightful service (amazing Olivia!) fantastic honest recommendations thankyou :) and the Food is fantastic, great prices and not skimpy portions, but yet not over sized either so you can enjoy at least 2 courses at sensible prices in Leeds! The decor is lovely the place is obviously popular, I would definitely recommend booking, enjoy, can't wait to book again, loved it :)

“What no bitter!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Come on include some bottles of beer in your vast drinks menu, not everyone likes lager or cocktails. You sell lager so why not a range of bottled bitters?
Lots of great bars in Leeds offer real ale so will not be back at The Alchemist for that reason.
