There’s a pub in Leeds whose owners love Yorkshire puddings so much, they eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Wapentake on Kirkgate dishes up pub staples in a cosy space, serving up the ultimate Yorkshire scran as an optional extra for every dish on its breakfast, brunch and Sunday lunch menu.
Popular menu staples include their ‘Yorkshire breakfast’ and breakfast hash, but there are also some super-northern additions – like crisp butties, Yorkshires with gravy, and stuffed Yorkshire puds.
The dedicated Yorkshire pudding dishes are what’s really got us excited – like their breakfast Yorkshire puddings, which come filled with baked eggs, crispy bacon bits and Henderson’s relish.
Other must-tries include their Yorkshire pudding burgers, which come slathered in gravy and garnished with a sprinkle of fresh herbs. Available as a meaty or vegan option, these look beyond incredible – served with chunky hand-cut chips on the side.
Or, of course, if you really want the ultimate Yorkshire experience you could always spring for their roast on. a Sunday. The presentation on these makes it all about Yorkshire again: perfectly fluffy, large puds stacked on top of your main and its accoutrements.
As well as serving up Yorkshires a-plenty, there’s so much more to be discovered here too – not least a brilliant selection of craft ales and beers, many of them brewed right here in Yorkshire.
There’s also a solid coffee menu if you’re at a loose end in the day, with some tasty home-baked options like fruit loaf, brownies and blondies to be enjoyed alongside.
Tea, meanwhile, is, of course, Yorkshire (gold or decaf) or Taylor’s of Harrogate. We wouldn’t have it any other way, PG tips is beyond sacrilege.
Wapentake has to be the most Yorkshire spot in Leeds – and based on their Instagram, it’s about to get a whole lot busier after they posted that local Youtuber Danny Malin was down recently trying their aforementioned Yorkshire pudding burger.
Our recommendation? Get down here before his video goes up – it’s going to be absolutely rammed soon enough.
