A relaxed, informal, dining room with small plate menus designed to share. Sometimes with a theme, sometimes not, but always thoughtful & inventive cooking. Not licensed, but happy to provide you with drinking vessels for your wine or beer.
This family-run restaurant is popular with both Leeds locals and visitors, found inside a relaxed and informal dining space. The Swine That Dines dining room is kitted out with a neutral colour palette and wooden accents, while pig motifs dotted around the walls add a sense of fun.
The restaurant is open daily for dinner and on for lunch on the weekends. At lunchtime, you can expect to find three courses for under £20, served as part of a seasonally changing menu which champions fresh and local produce. Dishes you might come across on your visit include starters of chicken livers with radish and miso, followed by beef shin with red cabbage, parsley and shallots.
In the evening, The Swine That Dines switches things up with a menu of sharing small plates. As with the lunchtime offering, the menu is subject to change but you can expect to find dishes similar to the likes of rhubarb with tarragon and labneh or mutton with almond, parsley and swede. To round off your meal, you can tuck into one of The Swine That Dines desserts, or you can opt to enjoy a selection of cheeses.
It is worth noting that the restaurant does not have an alcohol license, however it will happily provide glasses and anything else you need when you bring in your own booze. There is also a small corkage charge of £5 per table.
The Swine That Dines celebrates the end of the week with its popular Pie Sundays, when you can enjoy a starter, pie, side and a dessert for £22.50.
