Dough Bistro - Modern French Restaurant with Leeds Flair

*** A Message From Luke, Our Owner***

You may have wondered where Dough has gone? Well, after 10 years, and three restaurants, we have decided to change the concept to something that fuels our passions even more than Dough did. Our new restaurant will be called Aperitivo ( and is set to launch at the beginning of November promising Italian inspired small plates and stone baked pizza, alongside delivery from our friends at Deliveroo. Please see our Facebook page for more details. 

Thank you so much to all the well wishers and support we've received over the years, and we look forward to welcoming you into our new restaurant next month.

Lastly, if you're looking for a tasting menu and the best fine dining in Leeds (winner of the Best Fine Dining, at the YEP Oliver awards), please visit, where i am cooking in an open kitchen, and would love to see some of you down there.

Please note, our phones and emails are not being monitored, but you can get in touch with me at






Our menus are created by Dough's award winning chef, Luke Downing and head chef Laura MacLeod, using the best of Yorkshire's amazing ingredients, and specialist items from France. Our blackboard specials change daily, and for those wanting a special treat, try our chef's Tasting Menu. We also offer some traditional and some very untraditional cocktails for those that enjoy something bit different during their meal. 
We Won!

Dough is has once again won 'Best Suburban Restaurant' at the Fantastic Yorkshire Evening Post's Oliver Awards 2017. Our sister restaurant Vice and Virtue, also won 'Best Fine Dining'.

Our sister restaurant and cocktail lounge Vice and Virtue, is getting rave reviews since opening last year. It's located on New Briggate, opposite Belgrave, and is a refined cocktail bar on the first floor, and a soon to open restaurant on the upper floor. A fairly discreet entrance, keep your eyes peeled!
