Leeds is now in Local Alert Level: High. HEART can continue to operate so please contact us if you need a space to work, or a meeting room.
Assembly Bar + Kitchen can continue to welcome you in your household group or Support Bubble.
We have a limited capacity and it will be table service only, so we recommend booking before you come down. Remember you can still meet in groups of up to six in our outside café space (maintaining social distance) and we would still advise booking to avoid disappointment.
We have the NHS QR code in place, and all Covid 19 Secure guidelines are being followed to make your visit as enjoyable as it can be.
To book a table please call Heart: 0113 2133664.

Assembly is open from 9am to 8pm from Monday to Friday, and 9-4pm on Saturday, serving fabulous food and drink. Take a look at the Assembly Bar + Kitchen page where you can access the menu.

HEART has received the ‘We’re good to go’ industry standard. Acquiring the Industry Standard mark means that HEART has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. Please view our latest Risk Assessment below. We also have our unique QR code in place for the NHS Test and Trace App.

Support HEART

Even with our cafe service in our outdoor spaces, and limited room bookings allowed, we are still only making a small part of our usual income. We don’t take external funding and so need to continue generating our own income so we can continue to pay our bills, retain our staff, and ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community. Every penny helps us during this difficult time.

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of HEART supporters over this time and hope you can still continue to offer that support; both by coming along for a coffee, sandwich or popping along on our Market Night but also by continuing to donate to our Crowdfunder. As ever, Whether it’s £1 or £100, it all makes a difference to HEART and we promise to value every donation and ensure we use it to help HEART survive and thrive.

Latest Update

Heart is excited to announce that during our week of closure we created a new private dining experience for our customers to enjoy. We understand that the new restrictions poses a challenge for us all but we aim, to the best of our ability, to create ways we can continue to make dinning a safe and enjoyable experience for you and your loved ones throughout winter. Our new shed allows you to privately dine, with your social bubble and enjoy an evening of cocktails and delicious comfort food. Our wonderful Centre Manager, Mike has done a little video to show you around! Places are limited so to avoid disappointment call Heart to book your private dining experience: 01132754548
