Butler's Coffee - Kitchen - Bar

We’re delighted to announce that Butler’s is now open on the ground floor of Number One, Kirkstall Forge.

Styled as a chameleon bar/restaurant, Butler’s serves high quality, fresh food and beverages daily to employees within Number One, as well as those using the adjacent railway station, visitors and future residents.

Renowned chef Richard Walton-Allen (ex-Harvey Nichols and the Create Foundation and chef consultant at Leeds-based hospitality and event planner Dine) and Mark Dawson (group executive chef at Dine) have acted as consultants on the project and designed menus for both food in the café restaurant and a range of items to go, including a range of low carb, high-energy items.

Butler's Menu

So, if you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee and a place to work, Butler’s offers a full menu throughout the day, before switching seamlessly to a licensed bar, opening until 9pm on Thursday & Fridays so you can sit back and relax with your drink of choice after work too.

Butler’s has been named in homage to the Butler family who were involved with the management of the Forge for over six generations from 1779 when they first agreed a lease with the Cardigan Estate, they then went on to purchase the Forge in 1893 and it remained in the Butler family until 1974 when the last member of the Butler family left the board and GKN acquired the Forge.
