Restaurant

Open for lunch and dinner, Crafthouse menus change with the seasons, with a focus on quality produce. The Josper oven provides a unique technique in the preparation of our meat and fish, chargrilling at 480 degrees over charcoal.

The 144-cover restaurant offers views across the city from within the restaurant or on the dedicated summer terrace and pays homage to Leeds’ rich culture and heritage with space dividers inspired by looms and ceiling rafts reminiscent of fabric reams. An open kitchen faces onto the restaurant’s dark oak and marble interior, whilst the chef’s counter offers diners a unique insight into the inner workings of the kitchen. Specially commissioned artwork features throughout.

Tina Norden, Associate Director at Conran and Partners, describes the design concept: “We wanted our design to reflect Leeds’ past and present – both its great industrial heritage and its status as one of the most vibrant, metropolitan cities in Europe. In Crafthouse, we’ve used a palette of heavy materials – oak, marble, dark leather, black ceramics and patinated zinc – to create an industrial feel.”
