First look inside the all-new The Owl from Elizabeth Cottam

An exquisite new location.

Reopening in a gorgeous new backdrop, The Owl has had the ultimate summertime makeover in its new waterside location.

Open to the public from Friday 27 May, the new Owl restaurant is a light, airy space home to some of Leeds’ best-known chefs and dishes.

Headed up by no less than award-winning chef Liz Cottam with head chef Mark Owens running the kitchen, this exciting new venture for the team.

The all-new fine-dining spot will open at Lockside: a picturesque riverside development looking over the canal. Conveniently located just moments from Leeds train station, the new spot has been designed to reflect the traditional heritage of Leeds with the new, modern development of the city’s South Bank.

The new restaurant will be roughly twice the size of its previous market home, including an outdoor terrace, allowing more opportunity for diners to enjoy Owl’s outstanding menu which has received incredible reviews from customers and critics alike since it first opened its doors in 2019.

Led by head chef Mark Owens, Owl has recently launched its spring menus which feature an eclectic mix of traditional British staples and an array of unique tasting courses and experiences, all of which are expected to remain on the menu.

Local produce is of particular importance here, with picks such as North Sea cod, aged Yorkshire duck terrine and Yorkshire rhubarb sitting across the dinner, lunch, bar and Sunday menus.

Owl is led by head chef Mark Owens who opened up The Owl originally with business partner Elizabeth Cottam. 

Mark Owens said: “We have worked so hard behind the scenes to create the Owl we’ve always envisioned. We are excited to start this new chapter in the life of Owl and are looking forward to welcoming all of our guests, old and new. Owl is great food, a great atmosphere and an experience to remember. As well as being a new chapter for Owl, we’re excited to be a part of a brilliant new area for Leeds alongside some fantastic local businesses such as Cross Keys, Northern Monk Refectory and Water Lane Boathouse.”
