Reviewed yesterday NEW

The restaurant was beautiful and well placed in Leeds. Staff friendly and attentive besides one of the waiters who took away a half drank cocktail that my son had not finished!! Food was nice but for the price not the best steak we've ever eaten, however the lobster my son had was amazing. Glad we've tried this restaurant but probably... More

Had a lovely meal at a reasonable price here. Staff were excellent and knowledgable. Only slight criticism was roast potatoes were a bit tough and not crispy and beef was fatty (but not to be helped on this cut really). Apart from that it was perfect and yorkshires were best we've had ever. Would definitely recommend.

First time visiting black house and was not disappointed. For starter I opted for the prawn cocktail not my usual choice as everyone knows a prawn cocktail but it was executed to a fantastic standard. For main I went for the Black house beef burger which again was delicious. The service was superb throughout our meal I didn't catch the... More

Came here with friends, the service from the staff was faultless and they were ver accommodating, always there to ask if we needed anything extra and kept the drinks flowing.

The food was absolutely beautiful; I asked for a rare steak and it was cooked to perfection. Although the man that seated us was rather disengaged and surly. Our waitress was approachable, accommodating and helpful; she was also very warm and friendly to our 5 year old son. Thank you for a lovely meal

It is almost there and I feel like with a pinch more effort this would be a 5 star review. The occasion was a double birthday, quite a few of us. Drinks are incredibly overpriced for what you get, I did not see gold flakes being poured into my drinks so I just feel robbed, you never want a customer... More

I went to the Restaurant on a Saturday night and managed to book on the night. The staff were friendly and we waited by the bar for the table, because we were early.
