About The Bankhouse Inn
The culinary scene in Yorkshire is one of the main reasons why so many tourists come to the county and why so many natives are as proud as they are about being lucky enough to come from God’s Own Country. At The Bankhouse Inn in the heart of West Yorkshire – in Pudsey, directly between Leeds and Bradford – they are even more proud that most, and they show their pride in the food that they cook and serve to the hungry punters of Leeds, which uses the very best of local products and ingredients, while also maintaining an international outlook and taking on influences from all over the world. Pay them a visit at their pub on Bankhouse Lane, just a short hop from Leeds city centre, to discover what they have to offer: do mind that you book a table before you go, however, as they will get crowded on occasion.

Leeds is home to plenty of great restaurants, and indeed, so is Bradford. It stands to reason, then, that the land in between would also boast an eatery or two that would be worth a cursory visit, and if you’re looking for a restaurant in West Yorkshire that merits a trip in the car into the more rural areas, then you can do a lot worse than The Bankhouse Inn. They’re a gastropub in Pudsey – on Bankhouse Lane to the south of the town – with a commitment to the very best that the farms and fisheries of Yorkshire have to offer. The Bankhouse Inn kitchen uses those ingredients to create British dishes that we all know and love, as well as favourites from around the world, and all you need to do is to take a trip to Pudsey to taste as many of them as you can take. Let us talk you through a few of them.
We’ll imagine that there are two set menus – though, of course, you will be choosing from the a la carte – of British and international favourites. Begin your hometown dinner with some smoked haddock fish fingers with pea puree and tartare sauce, and follow them up with a beef short rib, braised in Masham’s own Old Peculiar bitter and accompanied by fondant potatoes and savoy cabbage. Globe trotters can instead plump for a salad of Thai crispy beef to start, and then a vegetarian option such as a courgette and feta cheese stuffed puff pastry tart with olive and rocket salad. There are plenty of pub grub classics too – burgers, steaks, gammon, fish and chips – so whatever you’re into, you’ll find it at The Bankhouse Inn on Bankhouse Lane in Pudsey. Book a table now.
The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. We had a lovely meal with all the family and were very happy that the dog could come too. I can't wait to go back.
Great food, really enjoyed our evening. Speciality pies are sensational! And the meat platter to start was exceptional We'll be back at the weekend for the live music
Great food and very accommodating to my young daughter when asked if they could change a few things for her meal. Will be visiting again
The Bankhouse dining room - once bland - is now very nicely decorated. Food was very good, service friendly and pleasant. The is the best it's been for years.
Great atmosphere and all food presented and tasted gorgeous. All four of us enjoyed our meal. Generous portions too. Could not eat dessert. Music was an added bonus. Would definitely go again.
Lovely place! A it hard to find/have car access to but that may have just been the way my satnav took me! Accommodated the dogs also with no quibbles which was lovely and the food was good.
Pizza night excellent value for money. Easy to book, quick service. Would recommend we have eaten here twice in last few weeks and would come back again.
Good food we had to wait for it being cooked which is always a good thing, excellent service plus Old P on tap. Warm and friendly atmosphere
Lovely food and atmosphere as on previous visits. Highly recommended, great for a walk around the valley either from Pudsey or Tong village and then food afterwards.
Great friendly pub with excellent food and service. There was live music on when we visited, and they were very good. All in all a great night.
Extremely pleasant, albeit very young waitress. Food was slightly above average but unforrunately several of the items on menu were not available. Feel we should have been made aware of this fact before we ordered. Even the cheese board was minus the grapes!!! All in all, for the cost, it was a mediocre experience.
Really good food, we ordered chicken burger and beef burger and they were tasty and the chips were as good as we have had. Very friendly staff and a cosy place too.
Lovely place, great atmosphere and nice decor. Would have preferred more variety on menu - a lot of the dishes contained wheat or strong flavours such as goats cheese or smoked salmon.
Great service great food and excellent members of staff. They made my part and our dog very welcome. It's great that you can take dogs in.
Excellent and friendly staff. The only down side to our visit was that the service was slow but the food, when it arrived well worth waiting for, it was simply delicious.
Menu on bankhouse website was not what we were presented with when we arrived. My wife was gutted. She had to order from limited menu, which was a burger in the end. Several mistakes and had to wait a long time. Food was reasonable when it arrived.
We had a most pleasant experience at Bankhouse. Genuinely decent pub food in nice surroundings, served by cheerful and helpful staff, eager to please. A nice experience.
Warm welcome, Friendly staff & freshly made food, the perfect combo! Great choice of drinks & traditional menu steaks, pies, burgers. Well done to the chef
Nice meal, wait time of 40 mins but was warned about a couple of large tables so overall okay. Couple more cask ales would be good to see. Will visit again.
A very small menu to choose from which was made smaller when they didn't have certain items available. The burger was tasty but not worth waiting for. Disappointing.
