GROSVENOR CASINO LEEDS OFFERS YOU A SURPRISINGLY DECENT MENU TO FUEL YOU UP FOR A NIGHT’S CLASSIC CASINO ENTERTAINMENT
Sometimes you’ll want something a little extra than just a standard meal, so I thought I would see what an evening’s worth of fun gaming and fine food would be like at the Grosvenor Casino in Leeds.
Leeds isn’t short of classic restaurants like the always-reliable Browns on The Headrow. So I was intrigued to see how the Grosvenor Casino on Wellington Bridge Street could compete with such fine cuisine.
After all, Grosvenor hasn’t had to compete too hard when carrying out its normal business of online casino gaming. While some sites offer match bonuses and larger special offers such as the 888Casino £88 deal, Grosvenor still manages to stay competitive with a decent £20 welcome bonus and a good selection of slots and table games on its online casino platform.
But when it comes to creating tantalising menus, Grosvenor Casino might not have quite the same level of expertise. However, I was delighted to find that the gaming brand had teamed up with some of Leeds’ most enterprising food outlets to make sure that all of the gamers stayed fully fuelled.
As a result, you can see an impressive menu filled with fried chicken treats from Absurd Bird, great stone-baked pizzas courtesy of Barrel and Stone, along with a fine selection of handpicked wines, beers and spirits to add a touch of fun to the proceedings.
I was impressed to find that the service at Grosvenor Casino was prompt and friendly. While there were many other customers there, I was greeted by staff-members called Maria and Natalie who quickly showed me to my table and made sure that my order arrived quickly.
You may think that if you’re looking for fine dining, then Grosvenor Casino probably isn’t the place for you. After all, most people will probably head to the restaurant just to fill up on a burger before hitting the gaming tables.
But I had a delicious 8oz rump steak from the grill that was topped with mushrooms and Stilton cheese that proved to be excellent and not too overcooked. Following this, I enjoyed a sumptuous three berry mousse cake from the extravagant dessert menu.
Other tempting items on the menu included intriguing options like a Persian-spiced half-chicken, and I should note that the price of the meal was relatively competitive with the average main course price being around £10. All of which shouldn’t put too much of a dent in your gaming bankroll.
If I had any criticisms, it would be the fact that there was some cabaret entertainment going on while I had my meal. This wasn’t too distracting, but personally I would have preferred something a little more subdued as I tucked into my fine steak meal. A quick look at some TripAdvisor comments shows that many people seem to enjoy such loud music while dining, so I am probably being the exception to the rule here.
However, I did enjoy the hustle and bustle of the gaming ambience at the Grosvenor Casino. I managed to get a table that directly overlooked the gaming floor and it proved to be endlessly fun in terms of people-watching while I enjoyed my meal.
Interestingly, I discovered that Grosvenor Casino allows you to use any casino points gained to cover the costs of your meal and any drinks that you may have had.
Sadly my luck at the roulette table didn’t extend this far, but I was still able to enjoy a surprisingly good meal and some fun casino gaming entertainment at Grosvenor Casino Leeds.
