Ossett Brewery opened its third establishment in Leeds city centre on Friday 4th September 2015.

The new addition to the Ossett Brewery group, Archie’s Bar & Kitchen, is located directly underneath Leeds Railway Station within the iconic dark arches of Granary Wharf, and is just a stone’s throw away from fellow Ossett Brewery venue’s CANDLEBAR and The Hop.

The new venture follows hot on the heels of the  launch of CANDLEBAR which opened in April and brings Ossett’s total investment in Granary Wharf to over £1m and is co-ordinated with the imminent opening of the Leeds Station South Exit (LSSE) later this year, which will make the area even more accessible for those native to or visiting Leeds. 

Archie’s will have an equal focus on fresh food and quality drinks. The stylish yet comfortable venue spans over two arches and is open all day, serving a mix of eat-in and take-out premium breakfast, weekend brunch and all day dinner options.


A wide range of beers, plus Calypso cocktails, spirits, premium coffee and fresh juices – not forgetting Ossett Brewery’s very own beers compliment the dishes on offer and ensure that there is something to suit every taste.

Diners can choose from brunch dishes such as buttermilk pancakes with banana, caramel sauce & mascarpone, or simply a classic Archie’s All Day Fry.

From small plates, including chicken wings with honey, five spice and lavender, salt beef croquettes with spicy mayonnaise and lamb shoulder with smoked aubergine to classics such as fish and chips, Barnsley chop and Arnold Bennett omelette, Archie’s Bar & Kitchen offers a range of dishes that will satisfy all appetites.

A creative mixture of materials including reclaimed wood, steel mesh, ceramics and natural stones give Archie’s Bar & Kitchen a unique urban vibe.

Vibrant washes of colour are splashed around the venue, along with finishing touches including eye-catching funfair mirrors, a sailing boat, deck chairs and a full-size 1974 VW campervan evoking memories of childhood daytrips to the great British seaside.

Bar 5During the day, this laid back hang out offers a casual and relaxed vibe right by the station where customers can drop in, play the juke box, read the newspaper, hold a business breakfast, meet a friend for lunch, or simply watch the world go by.

Come night fall, Archie’s is a great joint to hang out around the bar with your after work crowd or friends.

Simply grab some beers, food and relax. For the full experience visit on a Friday or Saturday evening, hit the dance floor from 9pm and enjoy the current and classic DISCO music from their resident DJ under a rotating glitter ball.

Jamie Lawson, of Ossett Brewery, said: “Granary Wharf is already such an exciting location and features some of the best hotels, bars and restaurants in Leeds.”

“Archie’s Bar & Kitchen is the final piece of the jigsaw within this vibrant area of the city bringing a casual all-day dining experience with a great place to get your ‘disco groove’ on at the weekend.”
