I thought I'd be sad to see the Brunch menu go, but the Sunday Lunch is an absolute hit. Waitress was insanely lovely, and looked after us all so well! I've now experienced Brunch, Dinner and Sunday Lunch and all three were divine. Definitely kept their quality pre-fire, and I'm so glad to see them back on their feet.

Quite simply 5 star - service - really helpful waiter
Food - crammed with flavour and presented like a masterpiece - ambience lovely - headrow house attached pub is great for a pre drink however the bar person in there whilst pleasant did not have the same pride and friendliness that the waiter in restaurant had ? Such a different rather daring menu , we will be back !

Food is great as usual. This is my favourite restaurant in Leeds. We had a large steak that was cooked to perfection. We also had a lot of vegetarian dishes that were all very tasty.

We were unfortunate in sharing the lower part of the restaurant with a braying (mixed) table of ten persons, who showed no awareness of our presence (we were a couple). The pre-theatre menu though was excellent and the food generally prepared to a good standard. Service was friendly, if lacking in charm.

I visited with my husband early evening and ordered from the Prix Fixe menu, which is fantastic value considering the quality of the food. It is a small restaurant with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Plenty of staff on hand, our waitress was so lovely and friendly. Happy to see a sensibly priced wine list. Highlights for us were the Onglet steak and smoked mash, but it was all of a high standard including the desserts. Highly recommend and we look forward to our next visit. Thanks for a great evening!

Amazing as always. Very happy it’s back open. First visit for our 6 year old as well, despite not having a children’s menu (which we knew before booking) the staff were great with her. Offered us the option of a side plate to share our food or reduced portions. Thank you!

The food and service were excellent, as they always are. I had the venison taratare and the onglet. The venison was beautifully prepared and the onglet cooked to perfection. We also had the hispi cabbage as a side dish, again perfect. The service was friendly and efficient. All in all, a great night out, highly recommended!

Very much enjoyed a very good meal and will be returning for sure. They forgot my clam chowder for my starter (I was the only one having a starter) but made up for this with a free glass of wine and an excellent main course. A quality restaurant.

I never write reviews however, this Ox Club was a hidden gem to us! our first visit, the staff were friendly, knowledgable and efficient. The menu was interesting and innovative, chicken smoltz where have you been all our lives. We both had three courses of well presented and super tasty food. The porterhouse steak was probably the best steak we have ever eaten, and cooked perfectly as requested. The rice pudding was great and very light contrary to what you would expect from such a dessert we also had some great wine. A must for any foodie, we will be back for sure.

Access was through a courtyard with drinkers from the pub next door standing outside to smoke, it felt a little seedy. The restaurant itself was edgy in design, very under-presented like the style of a basement car park or warehouse, and the views from the windows were of multiple metal fire escape stairs. To use the toilet we had to walk through a dingy loud bar next door, and share the wash basins with pierced young grungy things dressed strangely for their drinking and snorting night out! We could talk though, I think the music was low and muffled, probably coming from the bar next door where it was unbearably loud.


The waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The menu was very brief. I had Beetroot Laab (what does that word even mean!) to start, to be honest it was like a packet of cubed beetroot coleslaw from my local supermarket. My husband had a special, a Thai pumpkin curry, but he was under-whelmed. Both starters were around £7 each. For main course we shared the Rib of Beef at £50, plus a couple of side dishes at around £5 each as it only comes with sauces. It tasted good but was quite tough and chewy, and it wasn’t massive for a sharing portion, though it claimed to be 800g some of which may have been the bone. For dessert my husband had Rice Pudding which was strange, and I had two scoops of sorbet and ice cream which were lovely. I think desserts were around £6 but less for the ice cream.

All in all, with a glass of wine each and a couple of hot drinks afterwards this dinner cost us well over £100. It was a good one-off experience but we both felt that for this price it should have been fine dining and perfect, and it really wasn’t. Although we enjoyed the surroundings for their eccentricity we felt ever so slightly uncomfortable and out of place. Glad we’ve been to try it but we won’t be going back.

Fabulous well cooked food in relaxed setting. Highly recommend the lamb rump which was cooked perfectly with smoked potatoes and the cauliflower side dish with almonds. Chose the 2016 Chile Salvaje red wine which did not dissapoint. The hay icecream was weird and wonderful with the meadowsweet rice pudding. Will definitely be back.
