Last week I visited the new Ham and Friends in Leeds, a wine bar / kitchen / deli in the city centre. I sat with a pot of tea and a pain au chocolat (which is utterly amazing btw!) in the wine bar.

The wine bar is lovely to sit in. The decor is a mix of urban and modern with bare brick walls, wooden floors and modern furniture and accessories. It is really bright and airy with plenty of seating and stunning floor to ceiling windows.

Ham and Friends food hall

The food hall / deli is full of produce. There is everything from meats, alcohol, preserves, chocolates, snacks, homeware, gifts and stationery. Everything is from smaller, independent artisan brands which I absolutely love! It is all really well priced too.

Ham and Friends cheese room

The best part about Ham and Friends is the cheese room. Well for me at least, I love cheese so a whole room of it is like heaven! Again there is lots of local cheeses and cheese from artisan brands. The staff are really knowledgable and know the tastes of all the cheeses, what you can use them for and what they will go well with. The prices here are really reasonable too.

The kitchen here will be opening soon, and hopefully I will be visiting again once it is open. They are planning on using the best products with no compromise on quality using artisan ingredients from ethical sources.

Ham and Friends wine loft

As if a cheese room isn’t exciting enough, a spiral staircase at takes you up in to a wine room! A platform suspending up near the glass ceiling houses lots of different artisan wines. As with the rest of the food hall the staff know everything about the wines and can help choose a wine for you. The platform also gives an amazing view of the food hall and wine bar too.

Ham and Friends review

I really loveĀ Ham and Friends. It’s the perfect place to sit with a pot of tea or glass of wine. It’s the perfect place to pick up an usual gift. And it’s the perfect place to shop for artisan food and drink treats too. A big thank you to everyone there for inviting me down to spend a morning looking around.

  1. I can see lots of interesting things in your post and the hot chocolate would be my favourite because that’s what I consume the most. I need to have it daily morning with breakfast, as I am not much of a tea or coffee person.

  2. This place looks stunning. Putting it on my list to visit during our U.K. road trip next year – lots of people to visit so we’ll have them meet us at places like this!

  3. what a great ambiance this place has to offer… I really love that rustic approach and how neat and cozy this place is..those huge barrel decorations complimented the theme so well.. they are very eye catching!
    This is definitely my kind of place! I am also a bread lover (not into wine though haha) which makes this so perfect for me.. if only we have a resto that offers the same theme here

  4. Ham and Friends looks like a wonderful place to sit and relax with some food and tea or even if you want to buy a gift for friends and family. I like the sound of ham and friends x

  5. My husband and I had our first date at a wine bar, and they’ve been near and dear to my heart ever since. Ham and Friends is seems like such a cool place, with a relaxed atmosphere. I love that they serve food. Ours doesn’t, so we always bring a picnic x
