Known for serving high quality British gastropub grub to the people of Harrogate, Three’s A Crowd have expanded and opened up a new site on North Street, Leeds.
Taking over the spot of beloved Leeds institution The Reliance which sadly closed it’s doors back in January, Three’s A Crowd is a modern gastropub serving British food using only the best local ingredients.
The popular venue, which first opened in Harrogate’s West Park in 2019, is known for its locally sourced food, premium wine list and friendly atmosphere.
We headed over to sample their new lunch menu, and it certainly did not disappoint.
From the offset the space is light, airy and welcoming – the owners have kept some of the building’s original features which has kept it’s charm whilst also adding their own personal touches.
The lunch menu consists of bigger plates, sides as well as smaller plates which are perfect for sharing amongst friends over a crisp glass of wine.
A standout dish was the steaming hot bowl of mussels served in a creamy leek and garlic sauce, served with the welcome addition of some homemade focaccia bread to mop up the juices.
The rich Oxtail Ragu was packed with succulent meat that simply melted in the mouth, with pappardelle pasta that was perfectly cooked and showered with lashings of salty parmesan.
From the small plates we went for the Korean Fried Chicken coated in Gochujang, spring onion and sesame. This was absolutely delicious, the breading was crispy and crunchy whilst the chicken was still moist and juicy on the inside.
The Homemade Focaccia was warm, fluffy and incredibly moreish when dunked into the winning combination of olive oil and balsamic.
A special mention must go to the Lyonnaise Potatoes which were crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle and topped generously with soft buttery caramelised onions. The perfect addition to any meal and in our opinion a must order.
From the dessert menu we were feeling nostalgic and opted for the Marmalade Sponge, drenched in hot vanilla custard this felt like a warm hug in a bowl and topped our meal off perfectly.
Overall, Three’s A Crowd is a brilliant addition to the Northern part of Leeds city centre and we can’t wait to sample their other food and drink offerings.
