A much-loved Leeds bar that was saved from closure last year is reopening its kitchen.

Alley Cats in Chapel Allerton was taken over by North brewery in November, a month after it was forced to close due to rising costs.

The Harrogate Road venue was renowned for its famous loaded fries and mac ‘n’ cheese, but closed its kitchen in February. Now, North brewery has confirmed the bar has relaunched its food menu.

There will be burgers, kids meals, loaded fries and mac ‘n’ cheese, as well as a new waffles menu, topped with maple syrup and ice cream or fried chicken, crispy bacon and maple syrup.

A spokesperson for North said: “It's their way of saying thank you for everyone’s patience whilst they navigated the unexpected closure of their kitchen. 

“They can’t wait to welcome everyone back and promise an even more lively atmosphere as they get back in the  kitchen. “

From May 3-6, Alley Cats will host a Bank Holiday Cookout, setting up a pop-up street food kitchen outside the bar on Harrogate Road.
