Located between the A1 and the A63, just a ten-minute drive from the Xscape in Castleford lies a hidden gem for visitors looking for relaxing places to eat in Leeds. A hotel might not immediately spring to mind when diners think of restaurants, but they’re in for a treat. The Best Western Milford Hotel welcomes the public to their Watermill restaurant, a charming award-winning Yorkshire restaurant serving dishes from around the world.
Diners that don’t mind travelling a little bit further will be rewarded for their efforts. While the restaurant might be outside of the city centre, it’s one of the more conveniently-located restaurants in Leeds for travellers. Major attractions like Lotherton Hall are easily reached and York is just a thirty-minute drive away, making it ideal for a meal before visiting the racecourse.
The eatery may be one of the most unique international restaurants around with its huge waterwheel taking centre stage. The impressive relic adds to the restaurant’s heritage feel with large murals showing rolling hills and idyllic Yorkshire scenery. There’s also plenty of room for tired travellers to rest and because they’re based in a hotel, guests are guaranteed excellent hospitality.
Like many proud Leeds restaurants, the Watermill is proud to use Yorkshire ingredients in their dishes. They strive to give their diners the freshest flavours, switching up their menus to keep things fresh and exciting. This means no two visits will be the same, with dishes such as local venison with bean ragout, chicken Ballotine and roast veggie strudel to tuck into.
When it comes to flavours from all corners of the globe and the comforts of a top-notch hotel, nothing beats a meal at the Watermill. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to another round of drinks, pudding or a starter.
