· Joseph Sheerin · New & Coming Soon

Vegan eats, craft beer and new pubs – it’s all coming to Leeds.

The Head of Steam

From Italian salumerias to craft beer-loving pubs, find out what’s coming to Leeds over the next few months.

Here we go, five new openings coming soon and we’ve got the lowdown. There’s a third bar from a well known name, a total transformation for two longstanding boozers and a brand new Italian eatery in the suburbs. Heck, you can even look forward to the surprise return of a long-lost vegan cafe. Go on, take a look and find out what’s in the pipeline.

The Black Horse

Black Horse, Otley

The Black Horse is one of a handful of Victorian coaching inns in the heart of Otley, but with the threat of closure looming, the folk behind Kirkstall Brewery and the Brudenell Social Club stepped in to save the day. They’re now going to complete a phased transformation of this classic watering hole. It’ll retain its old world character, while improving its beer offering and introducing live music.

The Black Horse will re-open in Otley in Summer 2019.

The Beck and Call

The True Briton

The folk behind Belgrave Music Hall, Headrow House and Water Lane Boathouse are heading out into the suburbs. They’ve taken over the True Briton pub, which will now be known as The Beck and Call. It’s currently undergoing an extensive makeover, but you can expect a family-friendly establishment in the vein of their usual haunts. It will have two bars, a roof terrace and a space for live entertainment, as well as an extensive selection of craft beer and pub grub.

The Beck and Call will open on Stainbeck Road in late May 2019.


pasta, Italian food

Deliziosa is a brand new Italian deli and salumeria coming to Chapel Allerton. It’s taking over the former Fruit Stall unit, which will be transformed into a 2-floor venue with a new conservatory, terrace and garden. Open from 7am to 7pm, it will sell cured meats and cheeses for you to take home, as well as a lunchtime menu of fresh sandwiches and classic pasta dishes.

Deliziosa will open on Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton in 2019.

The Head of Steam

Head of Steam

They’ve already got a pair of beer-loving pubs in Leeds, but now The Head of Steam is adding a third to its arsenal. They’re moving into the old Lloyds Bank offices on Park Row. You can look forward to everything we’ve come to love about The Head of Steam, including one of the best selections of Belgian beer in the city and a seemingly endless array of cask and keg beers.

The Head of Steam will open at 6-7 Park Row in Summer 2019.


Mog's Cafe

An old favourite is coming to Leeds. Much-loved vegan cafe Mog’s closed in 2018, but it’s now been taken over by Chris Beech and Courteney Hager, and they’re set to reopen it within the next six weeks. The pair used to eat at Mog’s when they were students and have decided to bring it back to life with a similar menu, so you can expect a host of juicy burgers, vegan fried chicken and grilled sandwiches.

Mog’s will reopen at 55 Kirkstall Lane in May 2019.
