Catch Seafood

Last month, Catch Seafood opened their first Leeds restaurant and now they’re opening another. They’re taking over The Fisherman’s Wife restaurant on Street Lane in Moortown and transforming it into a nautical-themed eatery. You’ll be able to tuck into tasty dishes, made using seafood sourced from UK ports. From classic battered haddock and chips to signature dishes like moules marinière, this is a good old British favourite done well.

Catch Seafood opens at 391a Street Lane, Moortown on Monday 17th August 2020.

The Canary

The Canary

Leeds Dock owners Allied London are opening a brand new bar and restaurant on the waterside with the help of operators WePop. As a nod to the area’s role in the industrial revolution, The Canary will be built from a series of old shipping containers, painted in yellow and black. It’ll have a ground-floor restaurant space, a first-floor bar and a rooftop terrace. You can look forward to an extensive selection of craft beer, cocktails and wine, alongside a menu of Yorkshire-sourced produce.

The Canary is set to open at Leeds Dock in Autumn 2020.

BrewDog Headingley


BrewDog is opening its third bar in Leeds, this time in Headingley. They’ve teamed up with the good folk at Red’s True BBQ to expand their LS6 restaurant. It will include a specialist craft beer bar from the esteemed Aberdeen-based brewery, so you can pair quality brews with Red’s tasty American smokehouse meats. Punk IPA, Elvis Juice, Dead Pony Club, they’ll all be there, as well as one-offs and collaborations you can only get in BrewDog’s own bars.

BrewDog Headingley is coming to 6a Otley Road, Headingley in Winter 2020.

House of Fu

House of Fu Gyoza

After multiple false starts, the first permanent House of Fu restaurant will finally open in Leeds city centre in January 2021. Formerly known as Fu-Schnikens and run by Ox Club’s Ben Davy, it’s wowed diners at pop-ups, supper clubs and street food markets for years. Their delicious bowls of steaming ramen are now the stuff of legend, but that’s not all you can look forward to as they’re putting together an extensive menu of Japanese food.
