The Pit brings a taste of the USA's Deep South to Leeds’s popular drinking and dining district of Headingley. Set on the lower ground floor below the popular Trio bar, also owned by nightlife and casual dining aficionados Arc Inspirations, The PIt is the perfect kicking-off point for those needing a hearty fill before a night of celebrating.
With an underground theme reminiscent of America’s goldmining years, this cosy, mood-lit bar and restaurant maintains a contemporary feel. Hanging lightbulbs illuminate a sultry bar area, whilst intimate leather booths perfect for groups of friends beckon. Friendly staff cater to your every need inside this fun and laidback establishment – which you’ll definitely be leaving feeling full to bursting point.
Sample American BBQ and Mexican dishes such as burritos, Hickory BBQ pork ribs, brisket, and the extremely naughty but oh-so-irresistible deep-fried mac ‘n’ cheese balls. The ‘North’ and ‘South of the Border’ sharing platters are perfect for larger groups. The ‘North of the Border’ platter features an ultimate BBQ selection including ribs, Boston butt, Cajun chicken, loaded nachos, wings and onion rings. South of the Border, there’s a plethora of pulled pork, creole chicken, mojo marinated prawns, flat iron steak, guacamole, jalapenos, and cheese served with soft flour tortillas, ripe for the stuffing.
The focal point for many who visit The Pit however, is of course the selection of prime-quality burgers. Try your hand at The Pit Master: a towering monster of a burger, heaped full of beef, bacon, pulled pork, grilled chicken, Monterrey Jack cheese and beer battered onion rings. There’s also the buttermilk marinated Cajun chicken offering, which comes with crispy bacon, in a fluffy brioche bun.
During the daylight hours, expect to dine alongside students and office workers from Leeds feasting on burgers and ribs. As dusk falls and the weekend descends, the energy in The Pit slowly builds, creating a vibrant atmosphere full of people celebrating with friends and sampling the excellent cocktails and craft ale selection.
