Friends of Ham opened on New Station Street in July 2012 with the aim of bringing high quality food and drink to Leeds in a relaxed, friendly and informal setting.

Starting out as a tiny ground floor bar with a large “hidden” basement we expanded 2 years later into the unit next door and continue to serve great beer, wine, charcuterie and cheese to the good people of Leeds. 

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we can only take bookings up to a maximum of 6 people. Walk-ins are welcome but we cannot accept any group over 6. 

Please phone (0113 242 0275) or email to book a table. 

There is currently no drinking or ordering at the bar - we operate table service only. You can also use our QR code to order direct to your table and to see our most up to date food and drink menu.

In 2019 we refurbed the basement putting in a bar and opened Underbelly with six more beer taps.

The Underbelly bar is currently closed but the seating is available in the cool air-conditioned basement. 

Underbelly is available for group & corporate bookings for groups up to 6 people. If you are interested in our basement bar for private hire then please get in touch with your requirements. We can take future bookings, but whether events go ahead depends on current government advice and we will be reviewing things on a regular basis. Due to this some events may not be able to go ahead.
