Princy Jain begins our Leeds Living partnership with this review of Farmhouse.
If you’re seeking a culinary haven that seamlessly blends tradition with innovation, look no further than Farmhouse. The independent restaurant’s second site is nestled in Leeds’ Lands Lane and stands as a testament to one man’s unwavering passion for gastronomy.
Jordan Aspinall, the visionary owner, has spent 14 years honing his craft in the culinary industry. His relentless dedication has brought Farmhouse to life—a testament to his culinary journey and his unwavering commitment to creating memorable dining experiences.
Farmhouse’s choice of location is a strategic move, providing easy access for both locals and visitors. The launch in Leeds indicates Farmhouse’s rapidly expanding reputation. The new location at 20-22 Lands Lane is set to make a bold statement in the market.
Farmhouse’s menu reads like a symphony of flavours, designed to cater to every palate and dietary preference. This restaurant has something for everyone, no matter what time of day. You can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast until 5 PM or tuck into mouth-watering burgers, fresh salads, and delectable seafood. And if you’re a vegan, vegetarian or gluten-averse, you’ll be pleased to know that they have some great options for you, too. The team at Farmhouse is committed to being inclusive in the culinary world, which shows how dedicated they are to creating a memorable dining experience for everyone.
Try their yummy Chicken Pergo or healthy Japanese Rice Bowl – they won’t disappoint! The menu is an ode to the diverse world of flavours, where handpicked wines, craft beers, and expertly crafted cocktails elevate the dining experience to new heights.
My own dining experience at Farmhouse in Leeds was nothing short of extraordinary. The restaurant’s commitment to culinary excellence and creativity was evident in every dish. The Tofu Taco, a vegan option, was a perfect combination of textures and flavors. It had crispy tofu for a satisfying crunch and creamy avocado for balance, all wrapped in a soft tortilla. The Japanese Rice Bowl is a delicious mix of flavors and textures. It features jasmine rice, with ingredients like courgette, pickled mouli, wakame seaweed, grilled corn, smashed avocado, and wasabi seeds, all tied together by a flavourful teriyaki sauce.
To finish off your meal, try the Chocolate Brownie. It’s vegan and gluten-free, and absolutely decadent when paired with smooth vanilla ice cream and a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce. Also, don’t forget to pair all the food with their innovative drinks and healthy smoothies. From a range of smoothies, I chose Royal Berry Blast, the perfect finish to my meal.
Farmhouse offers a diverse menu that caters to various dietary preferences, all expertly crafted and creatively presented. The attention to detail in flavor combinations and the use of quality ingredients make dining at Farmhouse an experience that’s not to be missed for anyone seeking a truly satisfying and intriguing culinary adventure in Leeds.
The restaurant doesn’t forget the youngest members of the family either. They have a separate menu with a range of classics and wholesome options to ensure that families can enjoy their meals together without any hassle. Furthermore, Farmhouse offers a “little deal” on weekdays that includes a kids’ main and drink for just £6.50, making it both budget-friendly and reflective of the restaurant’s family-friendly ethos.
One of Farmhouse’s most intriguing attributes is its versatile ambiance. Whether you’re in the mood for an intimate meal for two, a vibrant celebration with friends, or a private evening event, Farmhouse effortlessly adapts to your needs.
The extensive bar, replete with an impressive selection of wines, cocktails, and beers, sets the stage for an evening of conviviality and indulgence. The decor strikes a perfect balance, making it equally inviting for breakfast, brunch and lunch. In a world where dining experiences are often defined by more than just the food, Farmhouse stands out as a testament to the importance of impeccable service. In the grand narrative of Farmhouse, the service is the heartbeat that ties everything together. It’s the guiding hand that leads you through the diverse menu, the attentive ear that listens to your preferences, and the warm smile that welcomes you back for more. The service at Farmhouse transforms a meal into an experience, a dinner into a memory, and a visit into a tradition.
