About Us

The stroom restaurant opened in 2003 and is housed in Pudsey’s nineteenth century Conservative Club Building. We’re a contemporary, local restaurant that offers largely fresh, locally sourced food presented imaginatively and skilfully. We offer something for most people!

The restaurant, and its predecessor The Tudor, was run by the Gibson family for many years. In April 2012, the stroom was bought by Neale Hospitality - another family run team. Andrew now runs the restaurant and function rooms, supported by his Dad Michael, and sister Sarah.

Andrew has 20 years experience working in the catering and hospitality industry - including front of house, management, functions and helping out in the kitchen! Before coming to the stroom Andrew was the Deputy Manager at Ardsley House Hotel in Barnsley.

Working alongside Andrew, the busy kitchen is run by experienced Head Chef Paul Huddleston. Pastry Chef Phil specialises in home-baking and creates our pastries, cakes and ice cream.

Our team takes great pride in the food that we create and attention to detail is one of our many assets. From kitchen staff to the waiting team, no request is too great for us.

Here at the Stroom we constantly strive for excellence. But why take our word for it?

Here's a taste of what some of the region's respected food critics and our brilliant customers had to say after paying us a visit:

" Looking around at the other diners it is clear that this is very much a family destination. You could bring your teenage daughter here and your granny and neither of them is going to feel out of place.

So on to the menu, which refreshingly covers just one side of an A4 sheet. And, better still, it really is quite extraordinarily good value. There are pretty much two options: two courses for £12 or the full three for £14."

" The Stroom is the kind of place that makes trekking into an urban centre for something nice to eat a waste of time if you don’t actually live there. It’s not flash, it’s not brash; instead, it’s a comfortable watering hole that makes you want to book a return visit as soon as possible.."

Tina Jackson - MetroLife

" Among the main courses is belly pork, which butchers give away and which chefs routinely mess up.This one is memorable for its intensity of flavour, crisp crackling and soft, sweet meat.

I suspect Monsieur Guitton had a hand in the duck leg confit with bubble and squeak and Saumur wine sauce. Some duck confits taste as though they have been boiled for a week rather than gently roasted in duck fat. This was fresh and lovely.The vegetables had similar qualities.The sautéed potatoes looked deep-, rather than pan-fried, but only the stuffiest purist would disdain them. And all of this gear was thrown onto the table by some glum, mumbling teenager aching to get home to watch telly? Quite the reverse."

One of the best restaurants I have found outside of Leeds City Centre. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The service is unintrusive, friendly and very efficient. The only fault I can find is that the menu is so yummy it is hard to choose. The Rhubarb pud is to die for. Every time I go, the food and standards are consistent. I have to travel about 12 miles but this restaurant is worth it every time. Great atmosphere, small and cosy. I would highly recommend.

'Cheryl -Trip Advisor'

We eat regularly at the Stroom and have recommended it to many friends. All have raved on about the delicious food and have revisited it to show it off to their friends too! From a catering background I am not the easiest to please, and with a vegetarian daughter in tow, we can be a restaurant's worst nightmare when we turn up! However we cannot seem to trip these people up…excellent value for money, with lovely staff and a brilliant atmosphere.
