Restaurant Review: Shears Yard, Leeds

Last Sunday, I met my friend for lunch. She suggested Shears Yard for a roast, which I’m always up for! Neither of us had ever been so it was nice to try somewhere new.

It’s near The Calls in Leeds and I really love that end of town, a little bit out of the usual hustle and bustle, but still a great atmosphere.

It was busy, but not loud. I always like a place where I can have a proper chat and catch up, rather than shouting across a table.

We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir and checked out the menu. There were a few things that stood out, but I decided to go for the Pork Belly, while my friend got the Beef Steak.

The meals arrived in good time, and the giant Yorkshire pudding on top was an instant winner for me!

Sorry about the pictures, for once, the sun was actually ruining the shots!

I took another photo of the rest of the meal that was hiding.

Everything on the plate was cooked to perfection and tasted so nice. I didn’t leave any!

We were pretty full, but of course had some room for dessert! I got the Pineapple Upside Down cake. The cake itself was lovely, but it had pink peppercorns in the caramel, which I thought was an odd touch. Definitely different, but if anything, I avoided them as it was a strange taste.

My friend had the Peanut Butter Cup with sorbet and sponge. She really liked it, but I don’t like peanuts so can’t really judge. I did try!

The service was brilliant with really friendly waitresses. One in particular was lovely and really helpful. (I really should get names!)
The decor was lovely, sort of wooden/industrial. It had a really chilled atmosphere, and there seemed to be a lot of tables with friends catching up or groups of people.
The little details were great too, with everything served on branded clipboards – ranging in size to even this tiny one for the bill!

It was a different Sunday lunch, but still traditional. I would definitely visit again and have already recommended it to my fellow Sunday lunch loving friend. I will probably visit soon so that my boyfriend can try as well. I’d like to try the rest of the week menu too.

Altogether it cost £59 which I think is great for a good bottle of wine, plus two 2 course dinners. It may not be as cheap as a pub Sunday Lunch, but its much more special and worth it for a treat.

You can book online at shearsyard.com. I didn’t as I went late in the day, but if you’re planning on going at peak time, it might be worth doing.

Have you been here? Where is your favourite place for Sunday Lunch?
