    Book Now West Yorkshire

    The Reliance

    Restaurant - Modern British

    Head to The Reliance for Modern British dishes and homemade charcuterie in a relaxed dining room and pub, with craft beers.

    The aforementioned specials push the envelope a little more, emphasising the ‘modern’ in modern British cooking. Ingredients have far reaching global influences with dishes such as pigeon breast, beetroot, Szechuan pepper and plum sauce sitting quite happily next to smoked salmon, Vollkornbrot, crème fraiche, cucumber and radish.

    They claim to be an informal pub at heart, where customers are welcome to pop in for a pint, a coffee or a read of the paper, and the flexible space accommodates most requirements from lunch, through to pre-theatre dinner. There is even a Little Reliance Cinema for regular screenings.
