The conference dinner costs £20 for those who do not wish to drink wine with their meal and £25 for those who do require wine with their meal; you can book your place here until 16th April (the payment will close at midnight on the 15th). Please let us know if you would like the vegetarian option (and also advise us of any other dietary requirements) by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Indian food, Akbar’s is good.
For Thai food, try Thai Edge (just down from the University).
Red Chilli – the best Chinese food in Leeds.
Roots and Fruits – quite basic, but good vegetarian food here.
If you’re looking for something a bit posher, Art’s Cafe is nice.
If you’re not sure what you’re in the mood for, you can always head to The Light, in the city centre, which has a range of restaurants inside, include Prezzo, Cafe Rouge, and Browns . . . Trinity Kitchen, in the Trinity Centre, also has a good range of eateries.
For drinks, there are several pubs near the university, including The Eldon, The Packhorse, and the Library. (All on Woodhouse Lane, near the Clarendon Road entrance.) The Eldon and the Library offer cheap and cheerful food. La Besi, just around the corner from the Library, does reasonably cheap and cheerful Italian food (Bring Your Own Alcohol).
Balti King, just across from the Library, offers a decent curry on a budget. Of course, Leeds University Union offers its own drink and dining options (the Terrace and the Old Bar), though these can get a little noisy in the evening.
Heading north from the University, as Woodhouse Lane becomes the Otley Road, brings you to Hyde Park Corner (15 minutes walk): we recommend L’Oranaise and La Cafetiere for Mediterranean food that won’t hurt your budget. Along the way, you’ll pass Akmal’s, another option for a decent curry on a budget.
In the city centre, the Victoria and Veritas have good ‘pubby’ atmospheres. O’Neill’s, nearby, offers a cheap and cheerful food and pub atmosphere. All three are on the same section of Great George Street.
If you’re wanting a bit of history, the oldest pub in Leeds is Whitelocks.
And if you’re serious about beer, North Bar might be the place for you.
