Review: Monsieur Dejeuner, Headingley, Leeds

Authenticity makes an eating experience all the more interesting and memorable. Too many chains selling foreign food blandly reference the origin of the cuisine.

Beer of the Week: Lord of Misrule from Bradford Brewery

In the 18 months or so since it opened, Bradford Brewery has carved a seriously strong reputation, both in the city and further afield. It plugged a significant gap in the market, bringing the industry back to a city centre whose last brewery, Hammonds, closed in 1955.

Restaurant review: Bilbao Bar, Dark Arches, Leeds

Visiting long lost friends is often a fraught experience. Sometimes they have changed beyond all recognition. Frequently, they no longer resemble the memory you have of them. Occasionally, this transformation has been more than skin deep, creeping into and affecting their entire outlook. Which can lead to disappointment.

Terry and George - likely lads putting northern soul back into food

Chances are you won’t have heard of Terry Edwards and George Craig. By this time next year, chances are you won’t be able to avoid them. The pair are on a mission to put a little Northern soul back into Britain’s food scene and while they haven’t been offered a television deal (yet) it must surely only be a matter of time.
