When it comes to Granary Wharf restaurants, Leeds has some stellar options, but SkyLounge dwarfs them all. Come here for bottomless brunch or put your feet up and soak in the unrivalled panoramic views of our beautiful city.

Aire Bar

It's a case of sun's out, Guinness out, when it comes to Aire Bar. This iconic pub is famed for its ale selection and beaut riverside backdrop. But during the summer, you'll have to be sharp to nab a spot, as the terrace is very popular among pint lovers.


The highly acclaimed Home serves up contemporary British flavours and gorge views of the canal. Its five-course tasting menu starts at £60 or you can opt for a £170 option if you're looking to splash the cash. Both are available with fab wine pairings too.
