Food, Drinks, Art: The Tetley in Leeds re-opens with new menu, new Head Chef and more…

Following a period of re-design and reassessment to ensure comfortable Covid-19 safety procedures for all staff and visitors, today (Friday 7th August) heralds the reopening of the Bar & Kitchen of The Tetley in Leeds, as well as the arts spaces within.

Just before lockdown, The Tetley welcomed new Head Chef Rob Kaye. Previously Head Chef of Leeds restaurant Stockdales, Rob will be revamping the menu and adding his own personal stamp to some Tetley favourites, prioritising local, quality and seasonal produce.

Expect a honed-down menu, available across lunches and early evenings as the kitchen reopens. There will be plenty of veggie and vegan-friendly options, and of course obligatory Sunday roasts. The Tetley are also happy to launch a unique Private Dining service upon reopening. Book the historic Tetley Boardroom for private dinner parties for a truly special experience.

Look at the menu and pay for your food through your own device, and please be aware that The Tetley will be operating cash-free as a safety precaution.

During August, on the each Wednesday, The Tetley will take part in the Eat Out To Help scheme, as the they encourage people to try the new menu and welcome them back.
