*Firelake Grill House At Radisson Blu Spring Menu

The last time I went to Firelake Grill House At Radisson Blu was during the blogger evening at The Light, Leeds. We had a cocktail then (Bramble) and a starter (Chicken Caesar Croquettes) and the whole evening was awesome-so when I was invited back, obviously I said yes. I was invited to try the new Spring Menu and I was really excited to see what Chef Oliver had in store for us, and we were also getting a mini cocktail masterclass too. I’m so lucky, and I’d been looking forward to my visit to Firelake Leeds since I was invited.

The night started with a tour of the hotel-although I missed out on this as I was a few minutes late due to traffic. Hopefully I’ll get to have a look around next time. Whilst the others were being shown around I made myself comfortable at the bar and started eyeing up the cocktail menu. Once the others got back we chose two cocktails (Bramble and Long Island Iced Tea) and watched these being made for us. The full cocktail masterclass is two and a half hours long and you get to go behind the bar and make your own cocktail, definitely a good thing for a girly day out.

Once we’d had our mini cocktails we headed over to see Chef Oliver for our food. We tried lots of different food, including Sourdough Bread with Beef and Garlic Dripping, Pork Scratchings with Apple Butter, Smoked Sausage Bites, Campfire Cheese Pot, Fire Melting Croquette, Queenie Scallops, Yorkshire Nidderdale Lamb Rump, As It Should Be, White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondie, Flourless Chocolate Cake and The Triangles Finest.

Brilliantly,  Rhianna, Joe and Jennie are like me-people who let others try their food, so we were all able to have a taste of everything, though I drew the line at the Scallops. Everything I tried was pretty damn amazing, as Firelake’s food always is, and when I worked out the price of my meal (around £40) and compared that to how full I was (incredibly) Firelake really is reasonably priced for such good food.

Firelake Leeds has to be one of my favourite places to eat in the city. There’s so many different cocktails on the menu, lots of different dishes to suit all tastes, and it’s somewhere I’ve been recommending to friends and family asking about where to eat in Leeds-because I do get asked all the time these days. An evening of good food and good company really cheered me up and I’m wishing I had someone to take to Firelake for a romantic meal on date night-hopefully soon!

Have you been to Firelake Leeds? What do you think of the food I’ve been talking about?

*My food and drink were provided by Firelake in return for social media coverage of the evening. I didn’t have to write this post, but wanted to because the food was so good they deserve the great write up.

    I saw those cocktails and was salivating and then I saw the food! Just wow! I wish I lived a little closer because it looks mazing. Hubby and I are huge foodies so were always looking for great places to go and eat.
