“Hasn’t changed in decades” is intended – and will no doubt be taken – as a compliment to this Leeds institution, a spacious city-centre basement popular for business lunches and celebrations for more than 30 years. The best of France and the best of Yorkshire combine to produce “good food well cooked”.

“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”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
