Opening Date Announced for Master Chef Matt Healy’s The Beehive Gastropub

Award-winning chef Matt Healy has revealed the menu and launch date for his new gastropub in Leeds, The Beehive – his third venture in his hometown in just a year.

Diners can expect a brand new menu packed full of pub classics – all with a modern twist, and Matt’s signature style at the fore.

Dishes include a modern take on traditional pub grub, such as chargrilled sirloin steak served with triple cooked chips and Béarnaise sauce, The Beehive’s own burger with Jamón Ibérico, confit tomatoes, red onion, manchego cheese and lemon mayonnaise, Moules marinière, deep fried brie with onion jam and Chicken Kiev with Caesar salad and Caesar mayonnaise.

Matt and his team at Seventh Course Ltd have already seen huge success at their restaurants Matt Healy x The Foundry, in the city’s South Bank area, and Grön Kafe in Oakwood.

The Beehive in Thorner will open to the public on Saturday, July 27th, with bookings being taken via the website www.mhbeehive.co.uk from next week.

Horsforth-born Matt, 36, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the support that the people of Leeds have shown us every step of the way. We wouldn’t be able to push forward and see our dreams come to life without their support.

“We’ve already achieved a lot in a year, and that’s simply because we’re passionate about expanding and enhancing the dining scene in Leeds – whether that’s in suburbs like Thorner and Oakwood or the city centre.”

Matt added: “We’re proud to take on such a well-known building like The Beehive and we’re looking forward to offering something new for the residents of Thorner, whilst also giving people from further afield even more reasons to explore the area.”

“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to give The Beehive a fresh start with a new concept and a major refurbishment to create a beautiful village pub that people can enjoy with their families and friends.

“This is an exciting new milestone on our journey and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

The news comes after Matt Healy x The Foundry was named Best City Centre restaurant at the Oliver Awards, Newcomer of the Year at the Yorkshire Life Food and Drink Awards, and also took home the title of Britain’s Best Roast Dinner.

Matt shot to fame in 2016 when he was runner-up in MasterChef: The Professionals – with two-Michelin-starred judge Marcus Wareing famously describing one of Matt’s sauces as ‘one of the best he had ever tasted’.
