George's British Kitchen - Leeds

George's British Kitchen - Leeds
A few weeks ago, I made a trip across the border into white rose territory to check out George's British Kitchen in Leeds. I love a little trip out, and found the train journey oddly soothing after a busy few weeks. I was so ready for an afternoon of relaxation, and this was the perfect antidote.

We walked into George's to be met by a chirpy young lady called Erin, who led us through the beautifully seaside themed restaurant to a booth which resembled a beach hut, complete with toy fish knocking about the rafters.

Indecisive as ever, I left my cocktail choices to our waitress Katie, who was given the usual brief of 'sweet and fruity', and over the visit returned the triumphs which were candy floss and parma violet flavoured drinks. I mean, one had candy floss on it...

Halloumi skewers - grilled using our charcoal grill and served on a bed of cauliflower and mushroom curry: Big fan of halloumi, with it salty squeakiness. Perfectly light, and paired brilliantly with mushroom curry. Who knew that was a match made in heaven? Ideal if you're planning on stuffing your face with a carb-laden main.

Chilli shrimp and mango chutney salad - fresh tomato and lime salsa, topped with baby leaf salad and hot chilli and garlic shrimp. Finished with smooth mango chutney and chopped spring onion and coriander: Tasty little shrimp in a sweet sauce, with a little hint of chilli in each bite.

Chicken in a basket - tender chicken fillets in a light lemon pepper breadcrumb coating, served with sugar grilled smoked bacon, sweetcorn pancakes, campfire coleslaw, twice cooked chips and a spicy mayo dip: This was the kind of comfort food I had in mind. Thick cut sweet potato fries and Southern style chicken. My only feedback was that the bacon needed a little longer to get that crunch which would have been perfect. Minor.

Wild ocean cod -  100% sustainable tender fillet of cod, sourced from the clear waters of the Norwegian and Icelandic seas. Served with twice cooked chips, mushy peas, chunky tartare sauce and a few pickles: You really do miss out on the scale of this fish on this picture. If you enjoy a good fish, you'll be thrilled with this. Simple, yet more than effective.

Steamed sticky ginger pudding - steamed sticky ginger sponge pudding filled with vanilla mousse, served with a jug of vanilla custard and homemade golden syrup ice cream: The wind was blowing, drizzle was in the air, and I was feeling a little mard. Ginger pudding cures all of these afflictions, it appears. Also, please note the addition of ice cream and custard. Not one or the other... both.

Doughnuts - fresh homemade doughnuts with a chocolate dipping sauce, raspberry dipping sauce and candyfloss on the side: When I was little, trips to the seaside were incomplete if we didn't get a bag of doughnuts on the sea front, fresh from a fryer, filled with dark (probably filthy) oil, which seeped through the paper bag and scalded your hands. These doughnuts were far too superior! I wasn't complaining though. Again, candyfloss!

Go to George's for a chilled afternoon with lovely food and a great choice of cocktails. I adored the decor, and genuinely enjoyed the company of the front of house staff. Thanks for a lovely afternoon!
