The Tetley Bar and Kitchen in Leeds has announced the appointment of Connaire Moran as head chef, following the relaunch of its menu and food offering.
Moran joins from The Owl, in Kirkgate Market – the first ever pub in Europe’s biggest indoor market. Prior to this, he began his culinary career with Anthony Flinn, before working at The Reliance.
The venue said the new menu combines “high-end British classics” with more international offerings.
The menu is available through the daytime, brunch and lunch with a new Sunday Roast menu also launching.
Connaire Moran, head chef at The Tetley, said: “It’s such an honour to take over at The Tetley and to try some new ideas out. My passion is all about using hyper-local ingredients and sustainability, and I love the fact that this is echoed at The Tetley. It was the main factor in joining the amazing team here.
“We will always make sure we have a good mix of vegan and meat friendly dishes available. We have a few exciting projects coming up, including growing our own produce, launching our own regular supper club and using the best ingredients.”
Sam Fish, head of visitor experience at The Tetley, added: “The last 16 months have been challenging, but we can see light at the end of the tunnel. We have had time to reconfigure the inside of the bar and kitchen space, we have a brilliant new cafe commission art piece, and a brand new shop inside.
“Connaire’s first menu is an adaptation on the previous one, adding some fresh twists and seasonal food.”
