Restaurant description

A finalist in Masterchef: The Professionals in 2016, Matt Healy at The Foundry is a funky modern venue for unique takes on British classics worthy of a Michelin Plate in the Michelin Guide. The red brick warehouse-style space is loaded with character, and features seating at the front to enjoy al fresco meals and drinks.

Matt Healy has crafted a truly inventive, exciting menu that gives new life to established British dishes. Nibble on snacks and charcuterie to start, like chorizo in cider, or order some of the small plate sharers like hand-cut beef tartare with yolk and a cheese and onion toastie. Tastes of the local area are served up with the Yorkshire venison, with other seasonal dishes added to the menu constantly.

An extensive wine list is on hand at Matt Healy at The Foundry in Leeds to complement any meal, along with freshly mixed cocktails like the gin and tonic made with Portobello Road Gin and fresh botanicals. Desserts are beautifully presented too, and include favourites like crème brûlée doughnut, and lemon posset with sherbet and meringue.

A polished yet ruggedly individual venture from the celebrated chef, Matt Healy at The Foundry is a 10-minute walk from Leeds Rail Station.

    Went 2 weeks ago and was lovely, so went again yesterday, still really nice but my husband ordered Lamb which was very fatty and now has put us off going again, which is a real same. Customer services was not as good second time round too.

    The food was totally delicious, and service fantastic. The time limitation on the table was the only slight disappointing aspect, as it wasn't outlined on the booking confirmation email. But it didn't take away from how nice the place service and food was.

    Staff were so polite and efficient, atmosphere really laid back and the food was amazing. We found it hard to choose just because everything looked so good!

    We really enjoyed the food. Each dish had beautifully balanced flavours. I especially loved the tapenade that came with the Burrata and but everything was delicious. The lamb loin was tender and very tasty. We are not great fans of having lots of small plates instead of the traditional starter and mains but we may have been converted! I only wish we had had some choice in the order that the plates came to our table. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we had a very pleasant evening.

    Having been before and eaten the fantastic beef/chicken platter and beef wellington we decided to try the lamb. Unfortunately all 3 of us were disappointed. There was only a small portion of meat and it was mostly fat giving only 2/3 mouthfuls of meat. The vegetables and gravy were very good and the chocolate tart for dessert was also good. Coming from different households we asked for space on the table and this was delivered excellently.

    First time visiting The Foundry, gorgeous food and really friendly staff. Just a couple of grumbles; food could have been hotter and an extra roast potato (you only get 2) & Yorkshire pudding would have been welcomed. Also, as the chicken had sold out, we had no option to have beef and had to pay the supplement. Which we would have been happy to pay had there been two options but it perhaps could have been waived as there was no alternative. This is just constructive criticism as the food was lovely and the sticky toffee pudding was unbelievable!

    The lamb dish was outstanding. Great menu. Felt slightly rushed and the wine pairings didn’t arrive with the courses or weren’t fully explained. Good experience overall.

    Food was nice, however, was very salty. I feel it was overpriced for what you got. Staff were lovely and apologised when this was mentioned, however, when my partner told the chef he was greeted by "whatever", not acceptable in my opinion. At the end of the day it is feedback and should be taken on board.
