We say…

In Leeds city centre, it can be hard to find somewhere that just does great, simple food with a relaxed vibe. Look no further, as we’ve found it in The Reliance bar and dining room. Pop in when you find yourself in the town centre for a bite to eat, and enjoy the casual atmosphere and delicious food. It’s found on the lively North Street in Leeds, right next to the beautiful Lovell Park and near the arterial A64 and City centre loop roads, so couldn’t be easier to find.

The Reliance has a lovely, casual vibe, as the bright, light restaurant features classic wooden tables, hand-decorated blackboards, and plenty of fresh flowers, as well as soft, friendly lighting. The staff are always happy to help, whether you’d like a hand choosing what to order or if you fancy booking a large section of the restaurant out for a celebration, the Reliance is a fun and friendly option for everyone.

The Reliance features fantastic dishes and focuses on amazing ingredients and innovative new recipes. Start with a fig and goats’ cheese salad, or try the unusual rabbit ragu with linguini and basil. For your main dish, we recommend the tender lamb shoulder with anchovy, samphire, flagelot beans and ricotta. If you’re in the mood for something fragrant and relatively healthy, go for the Grassington rainbow trout with mussels in a saffron bisque, served with new potatoes and fennel. If you want something featuring local ingredients, why not try the whole Yorkshire pigeon with dolce latte bread pudding and pomegranate?

This restaurant also does fabulous lunch dishes, and has a substantial pre-theatre menu for anyone in the market for dining and drama. Stop by for their Sunday lunches and brunches, too, and you can enjoy some great home cooking without the washing up.


Leeds is home to some fantastic restaurants, and the Reliance should definitely be on the discerning diner’s radar. Make visiting here a priority if you’re in the market for high-quality, comforting home-cooked food.
