Five of the best BYOB restaurants in and around Leeds

The drinks are on you.

Going out to eat can be a pricey affair, so we’ve rounded up five of the best spots where you can bring your own bottle.

Often when you’re out for tea, the most expensive thing on the bill is of course…the alcohol.

A bottle of wine can easily cost around thirty quid a pop, and let’s not even get started on cocktails.

So as we enter into a very expensive couple of months, we’ve rounded up five spots in Leeds where you can bring your own bottle to sip on whilst you feast.


21-22 Park Row

Who would’ve thought that one of Leeds’ best steakhouses would allow you to bring your own booze in? Yes, Gaucho on Park Row know that Monday isn’t the busiest day for diners so are pulling in the punters by letting you bring in your bottle – with free corkage as well.

So grab your favourite bottle of red which will no doubt go perfectly with their delicious cuts of steak, and it’ll taste even better too knowing you haven’t paid top dollar for it.


27 Wellington Street

This family-run Japanese sando cafe is one of Leeds’ best hidden gems, which we visit time and time again. Serving up Katsu sandos during the day to workers and hungry punters, in the evening they sell a selection of mouthwatering small plates which you can enjoy with your own booze.

The Karate Chicken is most definitely a must order, alongside the Curry Dip Sando. Shokupan serve their evening menu exclusively on Thursday and Friday evenings from 4:30 – 8:30pm, and they operate a walk-in only policy.
