Harden's survey result
“Good French bourgeois cooking à la Yorkshire (ie big portions)” and a “great wine list” have combined to make this basement a popular city-centre refuge for thirty years. Weekly deliveries from Rungis market in Paris are complemented by more local produce. “A great spot for business” for which it’s often and highly recommended in the survey: it’s run “with efficient and friendly charm” – although “if you get one of the small alcoves, you may have to hunt for a waiter”.
A “Leeds institution” of three decades’ standing – this city-centre cellar is the perfect place to celebrate a business milestone over a beef-heavy French menu and a bottle or two from the 40-page wine list (“it has to be one of the best lists ever”), navigated with the help of “very approachable and knowledgeable staff”.
A “great venue for a boozy business lunch or dinner” – this “extremely busy” and “noisy” basement stalwart boasts “many satisfied repeat diners” thanks to its “highly dependable”, French regional cooking and bibulous possibilities (“if you want to, it is possible to spend a lot on its very good wine list”). Top Tip – “the early-bird menu is a particular attraction”.
“For a really lazy and boozy business lunch” this “lovely basement” stalwart is just the ticket; the Gallic menu can cause consternation, but only because “there are so many good things on it”, and “the noise level can be high” (not helped by low ceilings) but “this reflects its enormous popularity”.
