I read not long ago that one of Leeds’ original, independent cafe bars the Art’s Cafe were going to open a new kitchen bar called Shears Yard in The Calls, to be exact in Shears Yard on Wharf Street, which was once the home of Livebait. With the recent sad closure of Anthony’s it really goes to show we must support the independent establishments in Leeds!
Their aim will be for the kitchen to deliver a menu which is essentially seasonal and produce-led, using local suppliers to source their ingredients. The bar with it’s late licence will be offering a mix of cocktails, wine and craft beers, so will hopefully cater for all in terms of the eating and drinking experience.
I for one am very much looking forward this, their latest press release says they are opening in August 2013, so not very long at all! Lets hope Shears Yard can build on the reputation that the Arts Cafe has built over the last 19 years. Fingers crossed!!!
