A waterside restaurant, on the River Aire, in a converted warehouse (and formerly part of the more ambitious Pool Court set-up). The intimate dining room has pleasantly subdued lighting and strategically-placed screens to add a measure of privacy between the tables. Food is now more reasonably-priced and appeals to a more intimate market.
Starters, such as 'Salt and Pepper Squid with Chili Ginger Jam'; 'Spiced Whitby Crab'; or 'Roulade of Foie Gras with Frisée and Walnuts' set the style.
For 'mains', 'Char-grilled Rib Eye Steak'; 'Roast Suckling Pig with Buttered Spinach and Onion Bhaji' or 'Confit of Duck Leg with Creamed Savoy Cabbage and a Port Sauce'.
Desserts might include a 'Treacle Sponge with Mascarpone'; 'Raspberry Meringue' and 'Cinnamon Pannacotta' plus other simple but carefully-prepared offerings.
Friendly, but professional service.
