Slap and Pickle is taking over the kitchen in this Leeds City Centre bar

Slap and Pickle is giving away 150 Limited-Edition Oklahoma Smash burgers, first come first served as part of the launch.

This will be the fourth spot in the city to serve Slap & Pickle’s giant smash burgers.

The burger joint has been around Leeds for well over a decade, operating first as Dogtown, a giant loaded hot dog street food venture, before diversifying into the burger business.

It’s been a whirlwind few years for the indie, and you can now find Slap and Pickle all over Leeds, including now at Brewery Tap just moments from Leeds Train Station.

Slap and Pickle is best known in Leeds for its filthy smash burgers, loaded fries and extensive vegan range – and has seen its fair share of venue takeovers over the last few years.

Previously you might have spotted the burger kitchen operating at the likes of Assembly Underground and Beer Hawk until both bar’s abrupt closure in December 2022, or at The Old King’s Arms in Horsforth and Black Sheep Tap and Kitchen in Chapel Allerton in 2023.

Slap and Pickle now operate inside The Venue in Horsforth, Brooklyn on Call Lane, as well as at and serving at The Wardrobe, curing those pre-gig hunger pangs and appetite for a hearty bottomless brunch on the weekends.

The burgers themselves are reason alone to venture down. Think rich Swaledale patties smashed and grilled before being piled high with cheese, bacon, onion rings and enough house sauce to keep you going all night long.

But the loaded fries are just as exciting: think vegan duck, fried chicken or even sprinkled bits of burger and sauce to create a beef-burger-loaded-fries hybrid dish.

The kitchen at Brewery Taps will be taken over from Big Buns, who can still be found at the newly opened Northern Market on Great George Street, and over at SALT Oakwood.
