Wine & Dine Yorkshire attended the launch party of Leeds pub Adelphi last night to try some tasters from the new menu and it did not disappoint.
Holding a full house, the Adelphi was bursting with energy as guests from across the city and beyond turned up to enjoy a night filled with live music, gin tasting, whisky tasting and canapés.
The upstairs VIP room opened at 6pm where a tasteful selection of beverages were flowing along with canapés throughout the evening.
Some of the finer brands of nectar included a Jonnie Walker whisky tasting station, a Camden Ale tap, as well as an irresistible assortment of Mason’s and Tarquin’s Gin flavours.
Tasters of the new menu floated around the newly furnished victorian style pub; those we tried included a delicious fish cake, smoked halloumi and chorizo, and a mini burger which certainly got the taste buds tingling.
This was just a appetiser of what to expect from the future of the Mitchell & Butler’s group chain pub; beautifully cooked British classics served with only the best of alcoholic beverages.
The live entertainer played catchy covers of artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Oasis and Tracy Chapman. The timeless classics were enough to get people off their chairs and dance the night away with a drink in hand and smile on their face.
Manager Chris took over the reigns of the pub in November last year, and after not even working there a full year yet already has so much to show for his and the staffs’ hard work put in. He made a speech on the evening thanking everyone for their support and announcing how overwhelmed the staff were with the turnout of the evening.
We certainly saw the improvement and got great vibes from Adelphi’s new character, and will be back soon to try their famous Roast Dinner. To find out more, be sure to pick up our December/January edition of Wine & Dine Yorkshire.
