“Top-notch food at very reasonable prices” is the attractive deal at this “relaxed and friendly” bistro on the Leeds & Liverpool canal. Chef-partner Paul Huddleston has worked for Marco Pierre White and at Alain Ducasse’s palatial Louis XV in Monaco, and applies his skills to the best of British ingredients. It’s “not quite cheap” (by Shipley standards, anyway) “but excellent value”, with a five-course taster menu at £40.

“What a (pleasant) shock! A good modern British restaurant in my home town of Bratfud!” – Ian Johnson and son-in-law (and chef) Paul Huddleston’s bistro sits on the banks of the Leeds & Liverpool canal, and wins strong praise last year for its “precise, at times witty, dishes with well sourced ingredients, helpful, informative service… and we were even able to bring our dog! Marvellous”. “Prices are pretty reasonable for this quality of cooking, and the wine list has a lot of reasonably priced bottles too: highly recommended!”

For 33 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).
