The Flat Iron restaurant brand will launch a two-floor, 110 cover restaurant in Leeds, bringing its menu to the North of England for the very first time.

It is set to open at the end of November on the corner of Albion Place and Lands Lane, in the former Church Institute.

The menu will be led by the signature Flat Iron Steak, with an array of sides, including truffled macaroni cheese, crispy bone marrow garlic mash and homemade beef dripping chips.

Leeds diners can also take their pick from the drinks menu, consisting of a curated selection of wine, cocktails and local draught beers.

The Flat Iron team has had a Yorkshire connection for over 10 years. Its own herd of cattle is reared by third-generation beef farmer Charles Ashbridge in the hills above Sutton Bank, in Thirsk.

Flat Iron’s head of beef, Fred Smith, said: “Yorkshire is the home of our herd, so it felt only natural to open a Flat Iron in Leeds with our very own beef just a few miles away.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing great steak to the North and welcome new guests to the Flat Iron family.”
