Great service, amazing cheeses and hams, quirky place and real ales! What more does one want? Ideal for lunch! Would recommend it to everyone to try this gem!
A friend introduced me to this little gem near Leeds station. You walk into what looks like a tiny deli with hanging hams and cheeses on show. Wander down stairs and there is a room with a mish -mash of furniture, shuffle board, books and games ! Brilliant. The quirkiness is great. Older people sitting next to students, shoppers having...

A lovely place to warm up on a cold day in Leeds food platters were very good and the drinks were varied ...not really big so sometimes sat a bit snug ....but liked it just the same
Introduced to this bar last week, and initially thought it quite good......then I went downstairs! No no, not for that reason, but because its completely different and got the greatest vibe. Makes a nice contrast to the corporate chains in the Trinity. The beer all looked good, particularly the Pilsner (which if you've never had as a real ale, is... More
If you like different then you must go to this Charcuterie/ bar/eatery. Never seen anything quite like it before but it is amazing. The staff were soooooo knowledgable about the hams, cheeses and drinks and fabulously friendly. The menu consists of boards with a choice of hams, cheeses, olives, chutneys etc but not your run of the mill plastic ham... More
Pricey but I did think we had value for money with no rush to finish, interesting drinks, great meats and fantastic cheeses. We had no idea about the seating downstairs but sate on comfy stools at the side upstairs. I would go again, not every week, but to try something different occasionally. The staff serving customers here are just delightful.... More
Don't be put off by the tiny street frontage: downstairs is a much larger basement room where you can spread out on comfortable chairs. The food was very good - not cheap, but excellent quality meats and cheeses, complemented by good wine and beers, and friendly, attentive service.
Did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised,good selection of beers it was friday night and it was rather busy but got served without any problems all in all a nice experience ,would like to visit when quieter and taste the lovely hams that were hanging up
Visited friends of ham for a celebration with the better half, it was a Friday early evening, the bar was quite busy as it was prime after work drinking time but the staff were working hard and was served fairly swift with a smile. The craft beer and local ale selection was fantastic, I got beavertown gamma ray, stunning hoppy... More
Yes it's trendy, yes it's busy and sure it ain't cheap but it's well worth pushing past the suits to sample one of the hand picked ales on offer. Hungry? The well-informed staff can suggest various tapas to compliment your drink - I can heartily recommend the black pudding scotch eggs. In summary embrace the hype and treat yourself.
