“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”.
