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 from only one household. 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.

While 2020 has been a challenging year we have still managed to refurb our basement bar adding in a service bar and have opened our candlelit late night (once we can open past 10pm!) cocktail bar Underbelly. All our usual beer, wine, charcuterie and cheese are also available. It is open 5pm - 10pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Check out their instagram here.

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.
