Voted ĎBest Restaurant in Yorkshire and the North Eastí by the Hi-Life Dining Club, Samís Chop House excels in serving British cuisine with a contemporary twist. Packed with original features, mouldings and panelling, this restaurant shouts Ďqualityí as soon as you step through the door. Located in the heart of Leeds city centre, Samís Chop House provides traditional hospitality in comfortable and welcoming surroundings.

A British institution dating back as far as the 16th Century, chop houses were originally places where businessmen dined over plates of grilled meats, washed down with flagons of ale and fine wines. Visit today, however, and youíll find a slightly more sophisticated menu. Expect to see traditional British fare served with pride and a big juicy smile. Our ancestors would surely be proud of starters such as homemade crispy corned beef hash cake, ten days in the making, and chicken stuffed with homemade black pudding. The main course dishes echo the same flavours of old with Samís homemade steak and kidney pudding, traditional fish and chips and Samís gourmet fish pie, while the more contemporary palate is still kept happy with the likes of pan-seared sea bream and mushroom Wellington. For those who prefer something a little lighter, Samís offers a diverse and interesting salad menu featuring British ingredients such as Scottish smoked salmon, fine Yorkshire cheeses and dry-cured smoked bacon from Ilkley. Menus change four times a year, with the seasons, so you can be sure whatever choice you make at Samís will be nutritious and delicious.

Wine is a passion at Samís, which is probably why their wine list is packed with bottles of awardwinning fine wines, and was named ĎBest Wine Listí at the Leeds Restaurant Awards. Quality caskconditioned ales, including best-selling Samís special bitter, also contribute to a great meal out. A chop house is more than just a restaurant or pub, itís a meeting place where friends and colleagues have been enjoying themselves for decades; you would be well advised to make Samís your new haunt.
