About Howards Bistro

The dining scene in Leeds continues to go from strength to strength, and one of the major strings in the city’s culinary bow is the quality of the local ingredients available to the chefs of Yorkshire. One such British restaurant in Leeds is Howards Bistro on Richardshaw Lane in Pudsey, where they have a menu filled with favourites from fish & chips to beef stew and cottage pie. Throw a fair few international classics into the mix – chicken Kiev, vegetable tagine, goats’ cheese bruschetta – and an extensive drinks selection, from local ales to cocktails and soft drinks. Pay them a visit by taking the train from Leeds to New Pudsey station before making the short trip over to Howards Bistro – just remember to book a table before you arrive, as they can get quite packed from time to time and it pays to be prepared.

More about Howards Bistro, Leeds

As the Leeds restaurant scene grows and grows, the reputation of the city as a dining destination blossoms with it, and one of the main reasons behind this renaissance is the continuance of new openings all over. One such entrant into the competitive restaurant market is Howards Bistro in Pudsey, where they are bringing the best of British to Richardshaw Lane. You can enjoy a menu steeped in Yorkshire tradition: from a Scotch duck egg, wrapped in locally-sourced sausage meat to start, Yorkshire belly pork served with bubble and squeak to follow and Kirkstall Pale Ale to wash the whole lot down. It’s more Yorkshire than Alan Bennett and Geoffrey Boycott spending no money at a forced rhubard farm.

Of course, the fare on offer at Howards Bistro is not confined to God’s Own County. There are specialities to devor from the world over, and to that end, let us present an alternative, globetrotters menu that can be enjoyed. Starting in France, we can pick up some duck liver and port pate or deep-fried Camembert to commence, and a suivre, we can go to Ukraine for a chicken Kiev, Morocco for a vegetable tagine with couscous and flaked almonds or Italy for a chicken, pesto and mozzarella burger. Even the drinks are suitably internationalist, from German beer – Veltins pilsner – to American ale, in the form of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Book a table today to enjoy the best of British and international cuisine at Howards Bistro on Richardshaw Lane for one of the best bistros in Pudsey, if not the whole of Leeds.
