· Ruth Hargreaves · Competitions

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe – pick a restaurant, win an epic feast!

Mad Frans

Wellington Place is so much more than just an office complex. It’s a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, where you can catch up with friends over coffee, grab a drink after work or just relax in the sun. Plan your visit...

Meet the yummy Leeds neighbourhood that mixes business and pleasure…

Wellington Place may be the business heart of Leeds city centre, but if you look beyond the shiny offices, you’ll discover a bustling neighbourhood that’s well worth a visit. It’s got a mix of much-loved indies and well-known names, think restaurants, bars and beer-cum-pizza joints, plus oodles of outdoor space for you to kick back in the sun with a bevvy and bite to eat. All just a few minutes’ stroll from Leeds train station! It’s now back open post-lockdown, and to celebrate, we’ve got three tasty prizes up for grabs.

Three winners, one night of unrivalled scoffing!

There are three prizes up for grabs, each as scrumptious as the last. That’s right, you could bag £100 to spend at Veeno, Mad Frans or Hoist House – just pick your favourite and get your entries in.

First up there’s Mad Frans, where good ol’ Yorkshire grub meets fine dining. On Saturdays, their bottomless brunch menu promises hearty dishes like succulent, Yorkshire-reared sirloin steak and slow-cooked butternut squash risotto, all washed down with Prosecco, Aperol Spritz, beer, wine and soft drinks. Or, wait ’til Sunday when you can gorge yourself silly on their epic sharing roasts. Tender pink beef sirloin, free-range roast chicken, fluffy roasties, giant Yorkshire puds and an avalanche of seasonal veg – this is the dream! Best enjoyed out on the terrace on a sunny day.

Or maybe you’ll luck out with a visit to Hoist House, an independent pub where the freshly-made pizzas, street food and dog-friendly vibes are just as impressive as the 17-strong draught beer selection. Open seven days a week, Hoist House’s outdoor seating area is just begging for a spot of al fresco dining. In fact, you won’t have to head inside at all – you can order everything you want through their brand new table service app!

Last but not least, there’s Veeno. It’s a charming, family-run wine bar with a passion for plonk that’s almost contagious. Get your gulp on with a handpicked selection of reds, whites and rosés straight from the family’s very own vineyard in Sicily. But while the wines are knock-your-socks-off good, even the Italians know no good quaffing should commence on an empty stomach. Which is why they serve platters of nibbly aperitivos, Italian tapas, fresh pizzas and even an Italian afternoon tea complete with cured meats, cheeses, Italian breads and traditional desserts.
