Is FOH Leeds open during the works on New Station Street?

YES we are! We're open from 11am daily and praying for some sun to enable us to celebrate our new outdoor seating.

Do I have to book a table?

No you don't though we would recommend it weekends. We keep a certain number of tables free for walk-ins because we need a little spontaneity in life.

How do I book?

We take all our bookings through our website - please do not use social media to book a table. We also struggle to answer the phones during service so kindly ask that you do not phone to book a table.

We require a card pre-authorisation of £10 per head to secure the table. Private hire bookings we require a £10 per head deposit before confirming the space.

Do you serve anything other than beer?

We carefully select the best wines, alcohol-free drinks, port and sherry to bring you a well-rounded drinks list for those who don't drink beer. We also serve a small number of locally made spirits and mixed drinks with our usual frammy twist

Can I just come in for a coffee?

Of course! We're a continental cafe bar so you can come in for one drink, some nibbles or something more substantial

Can I enjoy a full meal at FOH?

Absolutely! We have a delicious range of small plates alongside our legendary charcuterie and cheese boards and a small selection of desserts to round your meal off.

Can I order food late?

Yes in Leeds our kitchen stays open late and closes one hour before the bar last orders. In Ilkley our kitchen closes at 9pm.

Are you dog friendly?

We welcome well behaved dogs in both our bars.

Can we bring our kids?

Yes we are family-friendly and there are no time restrictions - kids are welcome anytime of day

Can we sit outside?

We have two outdoor terraces at our bar in Ilkley and some outdoor seating will be arriving soon at Fram Leeds - watch this space!

Do you have a private hire space?

We have a 60-person space in Leeds available for private hire and a smaller snug in Ilkley which holds max 25 people.

Can we book as a larger group?

You can instant-book a table for groups up to 8 on either bar's page. For groups of 9+ use the booking widget to submit an enquiry and one of our bookings managers will respond with availability.

What if I have a dairy allergy? 

There is a heavy dairy presence in both our bar's kitchens due to the majority of our food containing cheese. Whilst we have dishes that don’t contain dairy and take steps to avoid cross-contamination, due to the small size of our kitchens we cannot guarantee that there won’t be any traces within any dish prepared by our team.

Can you cater for severe allergies?

We would advise those with severe allergies not to eat within our bars. While we endeavour to avoid it, we cannot guarantee lack of cross-contamination.

Do you offer gluten free options?

Yes we have gluten free crackers and bread available - just speak to your server when ordering.

What can I eat if I'm vegetarian or vegan?

We have a small range of vegetarian and vegan options on both of our menus available but as our name suggests we do have a heavy presence of meat in a lot of our dishes.

Accessibility at Ilkley?

Both of our bars are situated in old buildings and as such there are unfortunately major accessibility restrictions. There are steps at both entrances in Ilkley as well as all the toilets being downstairs so we cannot accommodate wheelchairs here.

Accessibility at Leeds?

We have a small step up at out main front door, on arrival please ask for our ramp. If booking a table please choose MAIN GROUND FLOOR where we also have an accessible toilet.

Do you do takeaway?

Yes we have a small range of retail items to purchase located near the kitchen in each bar. All beer cans/bottles, wine, charcuterie and cheese on our food menus alongside our sourdough loaves are available to take away.
