The Swine That Dines is a relaxed, neighbourhood restaurant in Leeds with three-course menus designed to share. A family-run establishment, it's simple, ingredient-led dishes are popular with both locals and visitors, found inside a stylish but informal 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 Thursday to Saturday for dinner bookings, offering a Saturday lunchtime menu and a set selection on Sundays throughout the day. As dishes are rooted in seasonal offerings, online you'll find only sample menus which are subject to change. To give a feel of what you can expect, though, starters might look like ox tongue with beetroot, horseradish and watercress or cow’s curd with confit garlic, salsa verde and toast. While main dishes could be corn fed chicken with oyster mushroom, chorizo and parsley, alongside winter squash with tomato, lentil, almond and dates. Sides sound delicious, too - we'd love to try the carrots with toasted pine nuts and buttermilk, and you can't beat buttered new potatoes. Desserts are decided on the night, and wines are supplied courtesy of local wine merchant, Latitude.

As well as more traditional lunches and dinners, The Swine That Dines also enjoys putting on themed nights like winter pie wednesdays, as well as celebrating holidays such as Burns Night, when the team will relocate to Horsforth Brewery and serve up a four course menu of Scottish produce and including their own take on a traditional Haggis. Check the bulletin board for updates on other upcoming occasions and themes.

Booking ahead is recommended especially as the restaurant opens only at specific times, so head online where you can make a digital reservation.

Stuart Myers

Chef Owner

Chef owner Stuart Myers cooked at some of the best restaurants in Leeds before deciding to open his own place with his wife Jo. The Swine That Dines began life as a monthly pop-up in their tiny cafe, where Myers would showcase a nose-to-tail approach to cooking - alongside breakfasts and lunchtime sandwiches. Now, his menus revolve heavily around traditional British cooking, with the odd twist.
