Crafthouse, situated on the fifth floor of Trinity Leeds shopping centre, is the sister restaurant of Angelica, both of which are making big names for themselves in the area. With Crafthouse’s open kitchen allowing customers to see exactly what goes into cooking and preparing their dishes, it is evident that they pride themselves on their excellent quality and have nothing to hide.
Head chef Lee Bennet and his team work hard to produce an original and exquisite menu which consists of dishes such as Yorkshire game pie served alongside red wine braised cabbage and buttered mash. The flavours that are put together really are something special, and the set lunch menu will give you just enough that you will surely be booking an evening meal not long after.
Although the presentation and variety on offer is what brings many customers flocking back for more, it is also good to know that Crafthouse keep their links close to home. They get their smoked meat and fish from Staal Smokehouse, a family farm in East Yorkshire, and their fruit, vegetables, dairy and cheese comes from Wellocks, a supplier with an excellent reputation for its links with restaurants. If you’re looking for superb food with the reassurance that the team of chefs are happy to discuss the origins of it, then this will definitely do the trick.
The list of wines they offer is also impressive, and the knowledgeable team are on hand to recommend which drink compliments which dish, so customers can get the most out of their meal. This little touch really adds to the overall vibe of warmth and welcome. Crafthouse Leeds don’t want to scare customers away with their elaborate dishes they want to share their skills and give people a reason to return, and they definitely manage that.
