The Light

The Light


Browns Leeds is on the city’s main east-to-west central avenue, the Headrow. Also on the Headrow are the grand Victorian town hall, city library, art gallery and Henry Moore Institute: this is the historic heart of the city.

The bar and restaurant are set in the imposing 1930s banking hall of the former Leeds Permanent Building Society. We converted the premises and opened in 2001. Ever since, we have been delivering delicious food and great drinks in the spacious restaurant and atmospheric bar area.

We’re right next to shopping and entertainment complex the Light and our outdoor terrace overlooks its impressive central courtyard. And if you’re after something a bit more intimate, have a drink in the old wood-panelled manager’s office, which has been lovingly restored.
