This sleek bar and restaurant is spread over two floors in the Old Post Office building in city square. A great selection of spirit based drinks and a versatile food menu are the order of the day at Banyan.
There are vegan friendly, and vegetarian friendly food options available.
Walk in at any point of the day or evening and Banyan will have something tasty to eat. Whether it’s brunch, lunch or dinner the varied menu hits all the right notes; salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, sharing platters and much more. And not forgetting the medley of deserts – salted caramel and chocolate torte with honeycomb ice cream anyone? – to finish it off.
There is a reasonable selection of beers, ciders and wines to pick from. As well as the usual spirit and mixer combination. On top of this there are a selection of soft drinks available.
Banyan are big on cocktails and the menu has been designed around the classics like a martini or a spritz to your more adventurous concoctions including the lemon cheesecake and pacific punch.
Gin lovers are in for a treat at Banyan as the bar comes stocked with Edinburgh Gin paradise collection that’s infused with the best botanicals. And if bubbly is more your thing then you can take a bottomless brunch with Prosecco.
Housed in the Old Post Office, Banyan comes with some pretty good social history and sits in a prime location in city square.
Inside the building it’s all about the stylish melding in with the rustic. Copper colours and weathered wood sit alongside sea blue walls under statement lighting.
Outside you can enjoy alfresco dining in the large seated area that spills out into the square. It’s a bit of sun trap and if there was any where that was the pin point centre of Leeds, this would be the place.
