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.

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.

    Really great dinner! All the food was lovely; we particularly liked the salmon and the potato/ truffle dish. A few of the dishes (the scallops and the pork belly) were a bit small, but overall it was excellent. The puddings were really excellent!

    Some good food elements such as the sirloin beef being excellent, however, vegetables were lukewarm and parsnips were undercooked. Main issue was unfriendly welcome by the hostess as we arrived. Her first comment was about the fact we had the door open - she was cold and unwelcoming. We were ten mins early, most of the tables were free (and remained free throughout our stay) yet we were made to feel like it was a massive inconvenience that we were early and we were told they had no where to put us. I also had to ask for hand gel after being asked to sign in using a communal pen that was not cleaned in between users. The table waiter was really nice and welcoming however. The same hostess also rather abruptly told my husband to put his face mask on going to the toilet- we absolutely agree with this reminder but it was the tone in which this was conveyed. Overall, the dining was not an 'experience' - there was nothing that gave the restaurant 'the edge' over similar others and we wont be returning to such an unpleasant welcome again.

    I booked The Foundry for my birthday meal. We have been a few times before and always had wonderful food. Today was no exception. We had the Sunday lunch, I had the chicken my husband had the beef. We asked for extra gravy as it is so delicious!!! We simply had a wonderful meal and would highly recommend.

    We had the roast, it’s excellent the best roast I’ve had in Leeds. This is the second week we have been and I’m already going to book for the third! The roast potatoes are fab, fluffy and crispy, the gravy is flavourful, having tried both the lamb and the sirloin, I can say they are both delicious, perfectly cooked, soft. The way the veg is cooked and served is lovely and it’s a great selection.

    wonderful food, great booking system service was not reflective of the price paid. expect much much more also arrived and seated on a disgustingly dirty table - not acceptable anytime, yet especially not in pandemic !

    Excellent food and drink and a hugely enjoyable dining experience. Good music too.

    Good food, but not sure it was worth the price tag if I am totally honest. I have been to many fine dining places, and for me, the food was really good, yet not outstanding. The dishes came out at different times, as explained, and so 2 of us just watched the other 2 eat for the first 15 minutes, which isn't what you expect when paying top money. I took my parents out and for the 4 of us the bill came to £430. Pretty sure my Dad was still hungry. The waiting staff were friendly, but at one point the waitress lent across the table, leaning her arms in the middle of the table, which seemed to be a bit far for the social distancing rule, especially as my Mum is over 60. Probably wouldn't visit again, but we had a fun time. Favourite dish- beef fillet.

    Another superb meal. We couldn't choose what to have so shared almost the entire menu! Great staff, very at tentative and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend! The beef fillet with short rib and potato presse- unbelievable!
