Otta’s Leah is the ancient name of Otley, a moniker dating back to medieval times, when people used words like moniker and towns were called things like Otta’s Leah. The restaurant itself uses the name to hark back to the traditions of Yorkshire cooking, and their menu is an example of the best that the cuisine of God’s Own Country can offer. Local British ingredients and dishes predominate: wood pigeon with watercress to start, lamb loin with wild garlic to follow and a cheese board and port to finish. You can even combine these into their 3 course dinner special – perfect for the famously parsimonious locals – for a superb night out in Otley. Take the journey from central Leeds to the north and make the stop off at Boroughgate in the heart of Otley, close to the River Wharfe, for a proper British feed.
Absolutely gorgeous food... We had three courses and each course was perfectly presented and tasted amazing. The staff were so attentive and friendly, and the decor and atmosphere were spot on. Excellent value for the standard of food and drinks, we will definitely be back!
