2 for 1 at The New Conservatory

First opened in 1984, and proudly independent since 2005 The New Conservatory has always been one of Leeds’s favourite bars.

Inspired greatly by the serene ambience of libraries, those venturing inside The New Conservatory are sure to relax when surrounded by walls of books and in plush, comfortable chairs and sofas.

Now accepting the tastecard, members who call in advance can secure a superb discount off all dishes. The menu is just made for those that love traditional British cuisine and boasts a range of dishes that are fit to suit any appetite.

Start the meal, or merely accompany a few drinks, with one of our exemplary appetisers, such as the rich homemade breaded Brie, partnered with home baked bread and a fruit chutney, the tantalising homemade tortilla nachos, adorned with Cheddar, jalapenoes and available with pulled pork, and the irresistible crispy baby calamari, complete with courgetti and lemon mayonaise.

Continue onto the main courses, where a wealth of choice awaits all walks of life. Merit worthy meals include the hearty battered halloumi burger, topped with tomatoes, salad leaves and a sweet chilli sauce, the delectable tandoori chicken skewer, served with mixed leaves and a mint yogurt, and the classic beer battered haddock and thick cut chips, paired with mushy peas and a tartare sauce.

Also serving some truly heavenly desserts, as well as a specially crafted menu for kids, all walks of life are sure to enjoy their stay at The New Conservatory.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard members must book 12 hours in advance. If tastecard members do not pre book the tatecard discount may not be accepted. The tastecard discount is only valid when ordering from the a lá carte menu and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. The tastecard discount is not accepted in the busy month of December or any celebratory day.

    After pre booking a Sunday lunch for three we arrived on time and we were shown to a table and became invisible from then on. No show waitress. She then seated a group of three and began to take their drink and food order. After calling her over we asked why we hadn't been acknowledged to which she turned her face sour and gave a look of disdain. Feeling very nervous about ordering food we decided to finish our drinks and leave. Looking at past reviews we reckon we've had a near miss! "

    My mother and I went for lunch during the week. I had mushroom risotto and couldn't fault my meal, however, my mother chose the fish and chips and was very disappointed to have far more batter than fish. Due to this and the slow service (there was only one waitress) my mother wouldn't recommend but I would and I would return here :-) "

It was just a shame we weren't able to stay long enough watch the live music! If we visit leeds again we will definitely return. "
