I think Leeds will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first city I went clubbing in. Before that, I had only been out in my hometown of Cleethorpes. Leeds is a beautiful, yet tiny city everything is within walking distance. I love the shopping, cocktail bars, night life and restaurants! For this occasion we decided to try Blackhouse.
We were warmly greeted upon our arrival and shown to our table. Time for the drinks! Priorities.
For starters, we enjoyed a Garlic Rub Bread. This was another first for me. I thought the idea was genius! So simple but it tasted so much better than regular garlic bread, and who doesn't love bread and dipping oil?
Sloe Gin Crush - Hayman's Sloe Gin, Elderflower liquer, lemon juice, Monin Passion Fruit and fresh Passion Fruit. The Cocktails were lovely and original but Alchemist is still yet to be beaten.
For starters, I also shot back some Oysters. They were served with chopped shallots in sherry vinegar, and of course lemon & Tabasco. These oysters were huge and set the meal off perfectly.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Two of us ordered the Lobster while the other two ordered a Fillet steak, described as the most tender cut. Delicate, sweet and delicious. They too went down a treat!
The Blackhouse is known for its steaks and offers a whopping £55 cut of Wagyu Fillet, the daddy of all steaks. It is claimed to be the most tender, scucculent and tastiest meat in the world. From the Wagyu breed, it is reared on a beer diet and massaged from birth...lucky cow!
I was really impressed with the variety on the menu, there were so many tasty dishes to choose from. Definitely something for everyone and at extremely reasonable prices for the quality of the food served!
During our dining experience, we got to listen to some really lovely live music.
I must mention the outstanding service of staff from all the team at Blackhouse. We were handed drinks by bubbly waiters and when I sneaked aside to ask for a surprise dessert for my friend nothing was too much trouble.
As the evening advanced, the restaurant became even more beautiful!
Me and the birthday girl.
Me and my friends had a fantastic evening at Blackhouse and we shall definitely be returning on our next trip to the city. Fantastic food, excellent service and a gorgeous restaurant! Great start to the night. Once again, Leeds you have not disappointed!
I hope this review has been helpful.
