As with the rest of the population of Leeds that weren’t put off by the snow, we decided to visit the Trinity Leeds today. We decided to have lunch at The Alchemist.
I drank rather a lot of red wine last night, so I decided a Bloody Mary was the drink for me today. We both ordered a full English and then just watched the buzz. It was quite busy and there were a few tables waiting for food a while….but all things probably down to only being open a few days.
The styling of the restaurant seems a bit confused, the gorgeous vintage lights at the front over the bar really caught our eye…but then as you get further into the restaurant the different styles of lights didn’t work quite so well.
Our food arrived. The beans had been sat around for a little bit and were quite mushy, the fried eggs weren’t great, the yolks were hard…but the poached eggs were absolutely perfect and the Bloody Mary was really good.
We did give our comments about the food to the Manager who seemed really welcome to the feedback and he knocked one of the the breakfasts off the bill.
So, my summary is….a few teething problems, but a nice place to go for breakfast/brunch when in the city centre.
