"What: This trendy New York style rooftop bar and restaurant is a great spot in which to start the weekend, particularly when you factor in its fantastic bottomless brunch. Here you can feast on the likes of avocado on toast, eggs cooked in various ways, and burgers, all while enjoying free-flowing bubbly or Bloody Marys for 90 minutes. It’s worth noting that East 59th’s weekend bottomless brunch is popular with groups and parties, so it’s best to book ahead.Where: East 59th, 47 Victoria Gate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 7AU"
"This summer will bring another rooftop dining destination to the city in the form of this glamourous Manhattan-style bar and grill opening in Victoria Gate in July. Guests can enjoy al fresco dining from the delicious US-themed menu, along with indulgent brunches, and bask in an authentic taste of New York in the heart of Leeds. Visit: 46 Victoria Street, LS2 7AU"
"What: The sixth floor of Leeds' Trinity Centre might not be where you would expect to find a brilliant brunch, but D&D's Angelica serves exactly that. This isn't the place to go if you're looking for a slap-up brunch as this is very much a stylish restaurant rather than a casual café. However, if you are in the market for something a little bit classy, Angelica's menu features everything from a crayfish and brown butter crumpet to buttermilk banoffee pancakes.Where: Level 6, Trinity Centre, 70 Boar Lane, LS1 6HW"
"Set high in the Leeds Trinity Building, Angelica is a mainstay when it comes to Leeds restaurants with views. Given its high position, both the indoor and outdoor dining spaces look over the city, making date night all the more special."
"With a wrap around terrace and panoramic city views, Angelica is a real show-stopper. Relax in a luxurious setting with a cocktail prepared by one of their skilled mixologists. What better way to spend a summer’s day?"

Modern British dishes and homemade charcuterie in a relaxed dining room and pub, with craft beers.
"What: It may not have the biggest outdoor area around but legendary Leeds boozer The Reliance does have a few tables out front which can be booked in advance. Food here comes in the form of small international plates such as duck ragu papardelle, mussels, and asparagus with a poached egg. We suggest getting a selection of dishes to share with the whole table while soaking up some rare Leeds sunchine (if you're lucky with the weather that is).Where: 76-78 North Street, LS2 7PN"

"Having been in Harrogate for almost two centuries, The Coach & Horses can be found at the junction of Tower Street and West Park and is found in a vibrant area with no less than 8 pubs. In the past few decades, the pubs changed hands a few times, until being bought by John Nelson in 1996, who purchased the freehold, making a true free house. Since then, the pubs developed under John’s leadership and has become a go-to pub in the area."
"Valhalla is York’s only traditional Viking pub and just being there is an entire experience in itself!. You’ll find people drinking strong, strange ales and mead out of a real Viking drinking horn!. The do also serve regular beers, lagers and spirits as well, but no cocktails unfortunately!"
"Credit: Chemical Engineer licensed under Creative Commons for commercial use. You’ll find The Roebuck just outside Otley on an empty road with no neighbours – the views are incredible as you look out across rolling hills from the terrace or the beer garden. Inside, it’s got a traditional feel with dark wooden furniture, a cosy snug and exposed vintage brickwork, but it’s been brought up to date with smart, modern touches."
