Jamrock opened at the former Arts Café site in Call Lane just last month, but has been forced to close to diners due to the national lockdown.

The restaurant, which promises to bring the "soul of Jamaica to the heart of Yorkshire", remains open for takeaway and customers can scan a QR barcode in Jamrock's window to order.

The takeaway menu includes jerk chicken, curry goat and vegan options such as a BBQ jackfruit and chickpea curry.

To adapt to the four-week lockdown, the restaurant has launched new Jamaican home dinner boxes which serve two people.

The £30 Jamrock Box includes a whole chicken, rice n peas, steamed veg, plantain, patties and slaw.

The Jamrock Vegan Box is packed with chickpea curry, vegan patties, coleslaw, jerk jackfruit, jamrock stew, plantain, rice n peas and slaw.

Four cocktails can be added to the order for £20 extra, or a bottle of house wine for £12.

The restaurant promises authentic Jamaican food with "big flavour and big personality"

Jamrock started as a street food business and is no stranger to Call Lane, having previously hosted pop-up events at IF Coffee.
