Located on the fifth floor of Trinity Leeds, Crafthouse is accessed directly via a scenic lift from Boar Lane or from within the shopping centre itself.
The inviting space offers views across the city from within the restaurant or on the dedicated outside terrace, and pays homage to Leeds’ rich culture and heritage with space dividers inspired by looms and ceiling rafts reminiscent of fabric reams.
The open kitchen delivers regularly changing seasonal menus created by Executive Chef Lee Murdoch.
Scottish-born Lee established his career at the five-star Turnberry Resort Hotel where he won an Award of Excellence from the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts. He joins D&D Leeds from Abu Dhabi where 55&5th The Grill won BBC Good Food’s Restaurant of the Year award.
Be sure to try one of the dishes cooked on their Josper Grill – it reaches a phenomenal 480˚C, char-grilling their meat, fish and crustaceans to perfection to give a really unique and delectable flavour.
Crafthouse’s wine list has been designed to perfectly compliment the food menus, and for those with a penchant for a cocktail or two, the team are only too happy to serve up one of their signature serves or a classic cocktail if you prefer.
Children are always welcome and a dedicated children’s menu is on offer.
Lunch service (with a la carte and set-menu options) starts at 12 noon until 2:45pm daily. Dinner service resumes at 5pm until late. A pre-theatre set-menu is available Monday to Saturday from 5pm-6:30pm.
