Last week me and Ellie were invited down to Yeadon Stoops Beefeater to try out their new menu in their new look restaurant.
Beefeater is a British brand that launched back in 1974 and now has over 140 restaurants nationwide. The restaurants are warm, welcoming and modern with cosy booth seating and an informal, relaxing atmosphere.
The brand is famous for serving up great tasting quality steak but prides itself on a wide affordable menu that has something suitable for the whole family, from succulent steak, chicken and fish to fresh salads and indulgent puddings.
Steak lovers of Leeds can now rejoice, the Beefeater Yeadon Stoops is now open following some exciting changes.
The restaurant has undergone a stunning makeover to create a light and welcoming environment for guests. The venue boasts a fresh look inside and out, with booth seating now available for larger groups. With comfort and style a priority for Beefeater, visitors can now enjoy the modern interior and relax in the new-look bar.
With strong family values at the forefront of the business, the menu is jam-packed with a wide range of favourites, including tender steaks, mouth-watering burgers and fresh salads. Guests can also tuck into Beer-Battered Cod & Chips, Smothered Chicken and the Beefeater Mixed Grill, each prepared with care and presented with flare. In addition, Beefeater is now offering unlimited skinny or triple cooked chips with selected main meals.
Yeadon Stoops Beefeater – starters
For starters, these are the sharers Garlic Flatbread Strips (£4.59) with the trio of dips (£1.99). The garlic flat bread strips are delicious, they are nice and thin and perfectly crisp. They have just the right amount of garlic too, you know it is garlic bread but it isn’t too overpowering. The three dips compliment the flatbread perfectly. With a yoghurt, cucumber and mint dip, a smokey hummus dip and a guacamole dip theres a dip for everyone.
Our next starter is the Loaded Potato Dippers (£4.89). These are full of cheese, bacon and spring onions and have a sour cream dip. The potato skins have a thin layer of potato and really crispy skin. I love the combination of toppings and the sour cream dip is delicious with them! Despite being such a huge plateful they aren’t too filling as they are thin and light.
Yeadon Stoops Beefeater – Mains
Ellie chose the Arrabiata Meatball Linguine (£11.49) This is linguine pasta with chilli pork & beef meatballs in tomato sauce. It has basil, a sprinkling of Regato cheese and warm flatbread pieces. The meatballs are really tasty with a slight kick of chilli, the sauce is nice and thick and perfect for dunking the flatbread in.
As steak is the Beefeater’s speciality I had to pick one of those. I went with the 6oz flat iron steak (£11.19). Flat iron steak is new to me, this thick cut steak’s marbling is what gives it its succulent texture and flavour. It comes with chips, side salad and tomatoes. I have added the rich beef sauce (£1.49) and beer batter onion rings (£2.89). This is THE best steak I’ve had! I like mine medium, which it was, and the flat iron is a really tasty, juicy cut. The rich beef sauce is super thick and really beefy. It goes perfectly with the steak and the chips. The beer batter onion rings are definitely worth having too.
Yeadon Stoops Beefeater – Desserts
Despite being incredibly full from the previous course we both found room for a desert. I chose the lemon curd sorbet (£3.99). This is 2 large scoops of lemon sorbet with a lemon curd ripple through it. It is really light and refreshing and not too tart.
Ellie is a massive brownie fan so she chose the Warm Chocolate Brownie (£4.99). This is a huge wedge of chocolate brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Again everything was just perfect with this. The brownie is crisp on the outside with a gooey middle and the chocolate is really rich.
Yeadon Stoops Beefeater – final review
Both me and Ellie absolutely loved our meal at Yeadon Stoops Beefeater. I honestly can’t make one criticism about any of it! The food is really good, freshly cooked to order just how you request it with quality ingredients and definitely not “pub food”. The staff are lovely, the waiting staff really know the menu and are attentive without interrupting or coming over too often.
Yeadon Stoops is our first Beefeater experience but it definitely won’t be our last. If you have a Beefeater near you I recommend heading down and trying it out for yourself.
