Chapel Allerton is one of the best loved ‘burbs in Leeds. Packed with restaurants, bars and cafes, this is a foodie’s paradise. So, if you don’t know your Mustard Pot from your Crust and Crumb, take a look at our guide to where to grab some decent grub:
The Mustard Pot
The Mustard Pot occupies an enviable plot in the heart of Chapel Allerton. Famous for its Sunday night pub quiz and (in our humble opinion at least) its pork in cream sauce and sticky toffee pudding, this is the place to spend a few hours wrapped up warm inside on a cold evening, or basking in the Leeds sunshine in the summer in the vast beer garden.
The Mustard Pot offers monthly guest ales, which is a nice touch for those who like experimenting with their ale, and its wine list includes a couple of unexpected choices from around the world.

Leeds isn't exactly lacking in Mexican restaurants, but many only manage generic Mexican food done averagely.
Pinche Pinche bucks this trend. Offering tapas style Mexican dishes as well as slightly bigger options for those who don't like sharing, Pinche Pinche always has a buzzy atmosphere and fantastic boozy options for those in the mood for a drink.
Leave room for the churros with dark chocolate sauce. It's heaven on a plate.

Crust and Crumb
Crust and Crumb
Offering excellent coffee and a range of tasty food, Crust and Crumb competes with (and arguably betters) many coffee shops in the city centre.
Breakfast is hearty and there’s an admirable focus on locally sourced fresh bread (from Bondgate Bakery in Otley). When you take into account the fact that it also serves pies, there's not much more that needs to be said!

Boss Burgers Kitchen & Bar
Several of these restaurants have opened up across Leeds, but as Chapel Allerton has a range of great places to have a drink, Boss Burgers is a top spot if you need food to soak up some booze.
Here, the focus is on quality – this isn't a greasy, cheap fast food joint, as all burgers made to order. Best of all, the beef comes from Yorkshire, so you can support the local economy while scoffing a tasty burger and some sweet potato fries.

Once upon a time, Casa Mia seemed to be everywhere. Now, sadly, only the Chapel Allerton restaurant remains.
Offering a wonderful range of Italian food (the main meals are particularly good, so don't feel you have to go for pizza or pasta) in the heart of Chapel Allerton, this is a restaurant equally fit for a casual lunch or a special occasion.
Casa Mia also run cooking classes if you’re looking for something a little bit different for a gift or a foodie experience.
