We say…

Sam’s Chop House in Leeds city centre is a fantastic addition to the Leeds restaurant scene that specialises in serving fresh local produce. Situated on South Parade, in an area that is rapidly becoming renowned as the place to head if you are looking for quality dining, Sam’s is an excellent choice no matter what you plan to do in Leeds.

As one of only three restaurants within the Victorian Chop House Company, expanding into Leeds was a decision that was not made lightly as the other restaurants based in Manchester are incredibly unique venues, steeped in history and have maintained their position at the pinnacle of Manchester’s restaurant scene for over 150 years! Sam’s in Leeds has lived up to the high started set by its predecessors and offers a restaurant packed with character and ambience. Housed within an old bank, Sam’s is a million miles away from the city sleek chrome and glass interiors that are all too fashionable today. The building is packed with original features; parquet flooring, chandeliers, gilded framed paintings and British racing green on the walls give the restaurant a wonderfully classy ambience.

With traditionally dressed waiters and waitresses, supported by the young but highly-knowledgeable manager, Anthony, the team at Sam’s are second to none and provide you with the very best dining experience possible. The food is absolutely stunning and with a fantastic repertoire of classic historic dishes such as pork belly with black pudding and potato hash cake; gourmet fish pie; and sirloin served with chunky chips. Every dish is wholesome in flavour and is served in a hearty portion size. There are a good selection of vegetarian dishes on offer that are delicious and offer something different to the typical vegetarian lasagne.

Sam’s work closely with the farmers and growers to source the very best in local produce and, although their beef and poultry is not reared right outside on the streets of Leeds, Sam’s source from the larder of their doorstep; Yorkshire. They really do make the most of the readily available fresh produce and seasonal ingredients.

Sam’s Chop House in Leeds is a truly exceptional restaurant that combines an beautiful venue with delicious food and a fantastic range of real cask ales. There is something for everyone to enjoy at Sam’s and, due to the popularity of this restaurant, booking is highly recommended.

    Came here mid-May with my partner after viewing the menus online and I have to say we both very much enjoyed the experience. There's so much to choose from and I wish I could have tried more than one main course because it all looked delicious!

    Overall:

    I have eaten in the city centre before and have not always been completely happy with the experiences, but our meal at Sam's Chop House was a dream and the staff were on point. We were meet offered drinks and left to chat soaking in the atmosphere. We were then transported to our table by the staff behind the bar all our drinks were put on a tray and taken to our table. The staff were very attentive and happy to help and a waitress took our order and in next to no time our food arrived. I don't often hear noises of joy from my family when they eat but I did this night the food was good and cooked to perfection. It's the first steak I've had which was cooked to my liking pan fried and juicy. We will all be booking here again soon the experience was a joy from start to finish. Thank you Sam's Chop House your service was on point and second to none.

    Nice food and a lovely setting but there were only about three tables occupied which spoiled the atmosphere a little.

    Overall:

    The service was very good. We arrived early and still sat straight away. Starter and dessert where better than the main course - the pork was a bit dry but my girlfriend said the lamb was very nice and soft. The onion soup was very nice and the dessert was lovely - but over-priced.

    Overall:

    Very enjoyable. The steak and kidney pudding is huge and really tasty, I'd definitely recommend a visit but make sure you book - it's popular. Also you can get a picture with a life-size statue of LS Lowry that's sitting at the bar.
