Rick Stein visits much-loved Leeds restaurant as part of new BBC series

Very well deserved.

The popular chef and restauranteur has been touring the country filming his new BBC series.

And one of our favourite spots featured on his route.

The new BBC 2 series, Rick Stein’s Food Stories, sees Stein visit different cities across the UK, sampling local delicacies as he goes.

As part of the 15-episode series, he stops off in various locations such as Cumbria, Bristol, Manchester and our personal favourite of course, Yorkshire.

Airing on Wednesday 28 February 2024, Rick Stein learns to make the perfect Yorkshire pudding, visits a Michelin Star restaurant in York and visits street food favourite Bundobust in Leeds.

Oh and he also stop off for a pint in Leeds institution Whitelock’s Ale House, sounds like our ideal Friday night if you ask us.

Unveiling the news to social media, Bundobust said: “Somehow managed to (mostly) keep this one a secret, but we recently got a visit from Rick Stein as part of his new Food Stories show, starting tonight on BBC Two!

“Little old us, on the same channel as legends like Paxman, Vic, Bob, and Sergeant Bash!!

They continued: “The Yorkshire episode airs 18:30 on the 28th Feb so we won’t spoil anything, but if you can’t wait until then to see what we got up to (not to mention some top notch archive footage of John Betjeman in @whitelocksalehouse) you can catch it on iPlayer now.”

So, tune into BBC 2 next week to find out whether Rick loves a Vada Pav more than a Bundo Chaat but if you can’t wait that long (and we don’t blame you) then you can watch the episode on BBC iPlayer here.

Fingers crossed we’ll bump into him next time we fancy a Combo For Two down on Mill Hill.
