Located on the corner of Albion Place and Lands Lane, the two-floor restaurant is housed in the former Church Institute and is a stone’s throw from Trinity Leeds, Victoria Quarter and Briggate.

Continuing Flat Iron’s single-minded commitment to serving great steak for everyone, the menu will feature the famous Flat Iron steak alongside much-loved sides, such as homemade beef dripping chips, crispy bone marrow garlic mash, truffled macaroni cheese and creamed spinach. A rotating board of beef specials will also be available, including a Wagyu cut of the day, Scottish bavette and the iconic Bearnaise Cheeseburger.

To celebrate the restaurant launch, Flat Iron will be giving away 250 Wagyu steaks from the Flat Iron herd on Wednesday 29th November from 5:30pm onwards, on a first come, first served basis.

The Flat Iron herd was founded over 10 years ago, with the intention of rearing the best beef possible. The team’s current focus is the Wagyu breed, which is famed around the world for its highly marbled and tender beef. The Flat Iron Wagyu herd have lived their whole lives in Thirsk, a mere 40 miles from the new Flat Iron in Leeds. Reared under the watchful eye of third-generation beef farmer Charles Ashbridge, the animals have thrived on a carefully curated diet of fresh grass, homemade hay, rolled barley, molasses and sugarbeet.

When speaking of the Wagyu herd, Flat Iron’s Head of Beef, Fred Smith, said ‘This beef is really special - I believe that Wagyu genetics, with its natural propensity to produce marbled meat, and the fine pastures of Charles’ Yorkshire farm, combine to produce beef of remarkable quality. I am delighted to share this with you in Leeds. See you on the 29th November!’
