Traditional British Flavours

Exceptional British Food


From the chef creators of acclaimed restaurant HOME,  The Owl was established as Leeds Kirkgate Market’s first ever pub. Now recently moved to 16 Kirkgate whilst a permanent home is developed.  Chef patron Mark Owens leads a team that focuses on delivering the very best British food, beer and wines in one of the most unique locations. Our dining room delivers simple British food full of tradition and flavour.  We are proud to create old fashioned favourite dishes all using truly British fish and game produce sourced as locally as we are able. Serving lunch and dinner (on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), we always choose the very best seasonal produce. Everything is sourced from a close network of small farmers and independent traders, some from inside the market, others from across the UK.


Attentive but informal, simple and delicious, British pub grub done well.
