Reviews | Blackhouse The Grill on the Square Leeds


I have a lifestyle post for you guys where I was given the opportunity to review some of the menu at The Blackhouse Grill also known as 'The Grill on the Square'. This restaurant situated on the East Parade in Leeds is very modern with it's dark leather seats and wooden interior. It was most definitely an inviting environment which was buzzing when I arrived.
What caught my immediate attention when I arrived was the gorgeous lighting along the windows which was extremely inciting. To my satisfaction our table was situated right next to the beautifully lit window... win win!
 For nibbles whilst we were deciding what to have, we chose the Warm Baked Loaf with salted butter (£3). I knew it sounded good, it looked good but when I tried it... it was heavenly! The butter just melted instantly and to my utter realisation I was enjoying it so much I was offered an extra napkin :s
For drinks I was craving something fruity and opted for the Watermelon and Guava Lemonade (£4) whilst my brother had a Apple, Mint and Ginger Crush (£4). Very similar to a mojito but with additional interesting flavors.
 We got the sharing platter for starters (£14.75) but made some adjustments to the options, so what you can see above are Bang Bang Chicken skewers (my fave), fish cakes, and Butler's Mature Cheese and spring onion croquettes. They were very nicely complimented with sweet chili, spicy peanut and mojo sauces.
I was totally in my element when the main course came along :) I chose the Fillet Steak Fajita which came well presented with little pots of cheese, lettuce, salsa tomato and guacamole. When it comes to red meat, I like it well done and no blood for me. I am pleased to say that the meat was cooked to perfection and very succulent indeed. The texture was tender and easy to chew which is always a plus and not always achieved in restaurants. I was umming and arhhing so it must have been enjoyable lol!
 My brother chose the Chef's special for the day which was a Ribeye cut with homemade chips instead of the set butter mash finished with creamed mushrooms (£14.75).  He is a lover of chips in general but thought these were perfecto. The chips finished in no time so I think he probably wished he had a bigger portion. He like me, prefers his meat well done and thought it was lovely but you can ask for however you prefer your meat. The portion size was just right.
Orange + Pineapple £4 | Raspberry + Peach Fling £4
For dessert he had the warm fudge cake and ice-cream (£6) which he thought was standard for Chocolate lovers and a perfect choice for him. I however love my sticky toffee puddings (£6) and knew that option was a must. As the lovely waiter who made sure we were content at all times confirmed, I made a superb choice for dessert and it did not disappoint. 

To end the luxurious evening we had a warm drink each; hot chocolate (£3) with marshmallows and an Americano (£2).
All in all it was a pleasurable evening and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend because  I really did enjoy my main and the customer service was spot on. I can just imagine how beautiful the setting must be when eating on the balcony in summer...
