Dough Bistro

French Restaurant with Leeds Flair

Menu de Jour, Tasting Menu, A la Carte, Cocktails, Wine and Spirits

Our menus change regularly and are inspired by the local produce found around Leeds and Yorkshire, but with a French cuisine undertone. We offer great value dining for all occasions, with our menu de jour at just £17.50 per person with a glass of wine for two courses, for the more casual, regular diner, to the chef's tasting menu, designed for those who are celebrating or like to enjoy some of the chef's more innovative ideas. The tasting menu, like all our menus can be ordered on the night, but if you have any specific dietary requirements, it's best to let us know in advance.
