Ox Club at Headrow House
Michelin Guide 2019 | Good Food Guide 2019
Best restaurant in Leeds
Fantastic knowledgeable and passionate staff. Lovely relaxed unpretentious atmosphere. Outstanding original food. Great wine and beer options.
Well what can I say.... the best, at everything, peaches, balsamic and cheesecake? Yes it works, fabulous from beginning to end!! Thank you
We had a lovely evening. The menu had a great choice and the food was delicious. The staff went above and beyond to ensure the experience was a good one. The only thing we said was that it was a shame the restaurant didn’t have its own toilet. This may sound silly however my friend commented on the fact that she had to fight through a group of drunken girls and the toilets were a bit gross! Apart from that, 10/10!
Had a great time, lovely atmosphere, food thought to be exquisite turned out to be just good, dressings a bit too vinegary, duck a tad overcooked, cheesecake alright with again-too vinegary coulis/sauce, mash was amazing and wine was great! Having to leave the restaurant to use a restroom was a bit of a nuisance though. We have been to many places in the UK places and around the world where you would get top quality for less $. Still waiting to find the one to top our Portuguese favourite, unfortunately Ox Club didn’t succeed on this occasion.
Ps. Service was lovely!
We loved this funky restaurant. Food was carefully prepared by chefs who knew their craft and the mix of ingredients. Staff was friendly and service was excellent. Would go again if/when we pass by here.
Great food, really good service the only slight grumble was that we had to wait a long time for our food to come. When it did it was amazing! Will be back.
Great all-round experience, great food as always and great staff. Not the quickest of service but great if your not on a time table
Great food & service tried things new to us & loved every dish.
The Ox Club is a relaxed & stylish restaurant which knows what it’s good at. The food is authentic & considered with each dish having a story to tell. Ditch the chains, skip lunch & enjoy an evening of great food, cooked in an open kitchen, served by a front of house team who have clearly sampled the lot! Enjoy!
Ox Club consistently delivers some of the best cooking in Leeds and is much more reasonably priced than comparable restaurants. Their fish cooking is bang on, the chefs have serious skills and their work is full of flavour and completely unfussy. The produce they use is tip top and the atmosphere is always good, the staff know about and care about the quality of the food and they are, put simply, nice people. Have been numerous times and the place never puts a foot wrong. If there are awards to be had these people should get them.
Simply wonderful meal. All 5 of us thought it was amazing. Fantastic service, great atmosphere. The best restaurant in Leeds for local-produce, top quality food. Thoroughly recommended.
We went to Ox Club on chop night for a treat for Father's Day. There were 4 of us. We order a starter each, 3 lots of meat and 4 sides which ended up being far too much for us to eat. The food was very good and the service was excellent, however, we would like to have been forewarned about the sizes of the portions, the mains on chop night are more like full joints of meat, not chops and one portion would have been sufficient for 4 people! When my husband and I have visited before we had the pre-theatre menu which was delicious and perfectly portioned! Service is excellent though and we would return.
Awesome food, awesome setting, great staff - toilets let the whole setting down though!
Did an early Saturday night here with my wife. Service was excellent, very friendly. Lovely food. The only downside was having to leave the restaurant, go across the corridor and to the far end of a very large, rowdy beer bar to go to the toilet. Would be great if toilets were on site.
Wonderful brunch, tasty and excellent value. We loved everything about it.
Third time I’ve been to Ox Club. I Love everything about it from the Scandinavian Inspired rustic decor to the super friendly staff. However, the reason I’ll keep going back is because the food is out of this world. Ox Club provides modern takes on classic pairings and flavours done to an impeccably high standard. I haven’t tried all the nice places to eat in Leeds but I’ve tried most and Ox Club is the best I’ve had in a ages - I recommend it to everyone.
For the sake of me and everyone else who loves good food please keep up the great work and unbelievably high standards Ox Club. Additionally Headrow House and Belgrave are also great.
Have eaten at the Ox Club several times and enjoyed the food even though on each occasion the service was very slow.
On Friday I chose to go for dinner with my family and was dissaponted. The steak was chewy, chips soggy, long hair in the duck,strange ingredient combinations. It was a shame as the staff are very nice and past experiences have been much better.
I adore this place and always have dinner here when I’m in Leeds. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. The beef tartare and duck were great and don’t miss the smoked mash!
Delicious food. Very helpful staff. Loved it!
My fourth meal at Ox Club and once again I'm very positive. For me this place is right up there amongst the very best places to eat in Leeds. Stunningly delicious food. The only slight blips were that we didn't find any of the desserts particularly appealing (though we're not big dessert eaters) and there was no decaff coffee. 'We've run out' implies lax stock control. But we didn't go for the coffee so a lovely evening was almost unblemished.
Great food and lovely, informal service. We loved it!
Another great meal at the Ox Club on Saturday evening. Went for the Fixed price menu which still cost almost £80 with 3 drinks, but the food is great so it’s worrh it.
Amazing as always, literally the best place I've eaten at in Leeds. An all round great venue
Fantastic place. The food is truly very special which is set off by equally good service. Will be back very soon. Thanks again for a brilliant evening.
Excellent food. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and welcoming service. Would definitely recommend !
Great service, drinks and food at brunch on a Sunday. Lovely decor, too.
the food was fantatsic. we had the prix-fixe menu which was an excellent value option. food was very good and a very interesting choice of wine, several by the glass. we were looked after with great attention from the staff. overall a great night, really enjoyed
food was amazing service a bit slown
My favourite place to eat in Leeds, food is excellent. Brunch is amazing value
Absolutely beautiful setting with the open kitchen and the food was incredible. Service was attentive but not over the top. Went at 11am which seemed like a good time to avoid crowds as I know they get busy. Only shame was no tips on card. I do prefer to tip with cash but didn’t have any on me so was unable to leave any money, well deserved due to quality and service so will have to give extra next time. Thank you for a brilliant brunch!
Excellent service and food. Relaxing atmosphere and well-situated to other bars next door and upstairs.
We had the prix fixe meal, fantastic value,excellent service and most importantly delicious food.
Beautiful food at decent prices (early bird menu) with good wine and excellent service.
I think I expected too much after seeing all the rave reviews. The red mullet I had was nice but it was the only thing that appealed to me on the menu. I probably should have taken more notice of the fact it has grill in its name. My hubby said his pork was nice, but that’s all it was a lot of pork. The worst thing about the place is the fact it is in Headrow House as my husband said the toilets were disgusting. Might give it another try one day.
Sunday brunch chatting with friends. Limited menu because I wanted a la carte. My fault for not looking at the website properly. All the more reason for another visit 😂
Super friendly and lovely food in casual environment
Fab visit for brunch. Lovely food, good menu choice and friendly staff! Great location and a good overall experience. Will be back in the near future.
Excellent food, great ambience and super friendly staff
It was a really lovely place to eat, the food was great as were the waiters. I dropped a point because the service was included within the bill which is a pet peeve of mine. I would have tipped the 10% anyway but putting it on the bill takes the polish away.
We ate off the set early evening menu,absolutely incredible food ,inventive and cooked to perfection on the charcoal grill. Great venue for pre/ post dinner drinks with an adjacent beer hall and roof bar.
