Christmas in Leeds 2015: Five venues fit for a festive office party feast

If you haven’t already booked your work Christmas meal, you’re running out of time! As we’re very kind here at Leeds Foodie, we thought we’d help you out… here are some fine festive options for the coming weeks:

The Alchemist, Greek Street

For those of you who haven’t been out to the Alchemist on Greek Street, you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. Compared to the more hectic Trinity Alchemist, this is roomy, boasts a nice split between the dining and the drinking area, and is perfectly suited for a pre-drink, tasty three course meal, and then a post-meal drink (and perhaps even a dance if the music takes you!).

Offering good quality food, a decent Christmas menu, and cocktails that are as good to watch being created as they are to taste, this is a great option for a classy Christmas meal out with your colleagues.

Yorkshire House, Greek Street, Leeds, LS1 5SH

MEATLiquor

No Christmas menu in sight here but you can chow down on some absolutely fantastic food, book out a booth to play pool and darts, and know that you are in the heart of Leeds if you are looking to do some late night celebrating post meal!

Our tip is try the buffalo burger alongside some fried pickles!

Trinity, Bank Street, Leeds, LS1 5AT

The Tetley

A rather more sophisticated option than the likes of MEATLiquor but nonetheless a solid choice for your office festive feast. The food here is fantastic and the biggest bonus is that you can select from three very different menus to help ensure you get the food that suits your group best.

With plenty of room on site to host large groups, the option to tour the gallery after dinner, and plenty of parking, you won’t find many better options for a Christmas meal for a larger office group.

Malmaison

The Malmaison is certainly one of our favourite places to go out for a lovely meal and a few drinks and the option to rent private areas makes this an even better choice for an office festive feast.

With a choice of two menus to suit the occasion and absolutely stunning rooms to stay in if you want to give your staff that Christmas bonus of letting them sleep off their excess in style, the Mal is the choice for you if you want to impress with your festivities.

Crafthouse

Best view in Leeds: check. Fantastic food: check. A dedicated Christmas menu: check!

Crafthouse is certainly one of the best restaurants in Leeds and the excellent Christmas menu as well as the superb views make this a really indulgent option for office groups looking to celebrate the festive season in style.

This is certainly not the place to come if you just want a simple turkey dinner, but if you are an office full of foodies, this is a fantastic place for a festive feast!
