A finalist in Masterchef: The Professionals in 2016, Matt Healy at The Foundry is a funky modern venue for unique takes on British classic. 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.

    In one word, this restaurant is AMAZING. This booking was made for my birthday and to also see how the place had changed from being taken over by Matt Healy.
    The food was fabulous especially the pigs cheeks, they were that good, we had them twice. Also the chicken livers and duck with black pudding was very tasty too.
    The staff, especially the gentleman who was the host this particular evening was so helpful with the choices we made mainly when we just couldn't decide.
    We will definitely recommend to friends and will be back again.
    Thank you

    This was a special meal -quality!
    Succulent tastes, tasty wine, excellent service- and the portions were fine. Not too much and not ridiculously small as in some establishments.
    A place for a special occasion and has Michelin written all over.
    All the dishes were good but the steak and lamb chops were - well, heaven!
    I'm usually not keen on numerous small dishes. As a yorkshireman I normally like a starter then a good sized plate for the main. However, this felt different. The sharing experience of sizable dishes of such quality made the experience pleasurable. How else can you eat pigs cheek, pork chops and steak in one sitting .
    Oh!Almost forgot to say that the deserts were incredibly tasty.
    The staff was very friendly, efficient and helpful. You could feel their enthusiasm and intent to please without bring overbearing.

    Firstly, the décor is very well chosen: it's the now tried and tested contemporary industrial brick-walled chic, but done with distinct care a healthy sense of individualism. The heft of the metal plate-backed menus are a brilliant touch and perfectly complement the views of the artsy-industrial courtyards which surround the restaurant. The staff are eager to explain the mouthwatering menu, and we took the recommendation of choose three small plates and a larger plate or two. Each item was utterly stunning: I had smoked eel, braised pig cheek in creamy orzo pasta, beef tartare and red partidge with the most heavenly combination of "game chips" and bread sauce. Tonka bean panna cotta followed along with one of the ports from a paired down drinks selection which focuses on wines and omits cocktail ponce. This is showcase food: delicious and innovative while maintaining Yorkshire honesty and simplicity of purpose. The quality of the offering means that I have almost entirely forgotten the loud party next to me whose laughter was perfectly pitched to pierce the large, sound amplifying room. In fact, I have already been trying to rope my colleagues into a visit to try the 2 courses for £15 lunch menu which looks like amazing value, and I would highly recommend anyone in the area to try it, too.
