Flack: (SAVING) on expenses - The Corn Exchange, Leeds LS1

Reviewer: Helen Standing, consultant, Trimedia UK.

What is it good for?

Set in Leeds' finest historical building, The Corn Exchange, a £1.5m refurbishment, has created a stunning dining and food shopping experience. An extensive range of top quality food is served beneath a high-domed roof covered in fairy lights. Even when it is busy, the 13,200 sq ft of space gives a private feel.

Signature dish

Black spaghetti with roasted baby squid and garlic oil - can be ordered as a starter or main.

Who's the boss?

Anthony Flinn, the Michelin star chef who owns Anthony's on Leeds' Boar Lane, Anthony's at Flannels and the Anthony's Patisserie.

Tips please?

The arches that used to house The Corn Exchange's quirky clothing and gift shops now offer a selection of high-quality food shops, including a wine cellar and gourmet chocolate shop, which you can browse with journalists and clients if you visit during the day.

What's the damage?

With generous main courses starting at just £8.75, there is a bargain to be had in what feels like a five-star setting.

The Corn Exchange, Call Lane, Leeds, LS1 7BR 0113 247 0995.
