About martinimanleeds

Martini Man lives in West Leeds and a is rabid foody and obsessive home cook. He has recently set up West Leeds' very first Secret Supper Club, Dinner at the Manor, with his friend Sticky Pinny. The supperclub aims to use locally sourced ingredients that are not typically found on restaurant menus. It also runs 'wine and dine' events that pair wines (or soemtimes even ales) to food - yum!

Last minute cancellation – two spaces available!

Saturday 8th February 2020, 6.30pm-9.30pm – £50ppSOLD OUT

Want to beat those January blues by joining us for a supperclub this year? Well your luck is in! We’re currently booked up until March 2020, but due to a last minute cancellation we have two spaces available for our exclusive Chef’s Table event at Leeds Cookery School.

This will be a slightly different event in that you’ll get to watch and interact with us whilst we cook and can ask us anything you like. The menu will include some of our favourite and most popular dishes from the past decade of running Dinner at the Manor. Plus it’ll be hosted in the gorgeous surrounds of Leeds Cookery School, in the Old Fire Station, around one big communal table.

£50pp gets the famous Manor tasting menu (come hungry as our motto is ‘never knowingly underfed’!) a welcome drink, take home treats, and the chance to BYOB. Sorry sold out now.

This event has been fully booked for some time so it’s an exclusive opportunity to have your place around the table. Happy new year!

French Christmas Lunch – Menu

Today it’s our annual Christmas lunch at the Manor, and we’re taking inspiration from Rick Stein’s latest series – Secret France. Those of you who watch the show will know that Rick celebrates proper French peasant food and it’s this we will be channelling in our menu. Using a few unusual ingredients we hope to give a fresh twist on the traditional Christmas meal! Let us know what you think…
