The Calls has a great location right on the banks of the River Aire in Leeds. The area was originally an open space filled with orchards, which then served as a dock on the Leeds and Liverpool canal during the industrial revolution. The area is now a vibrant, regenerated area, full of new businesses, boutique hotels such as 42 The Calls and award-winning restaurants. It is still only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Briggate, Trinity and the new Victoria Gate which together make Leeds a shopper’s paradise. For our clients here at Calls Wharf we are incredibly lucky to have so many lovely bars, cafes and restaurants nearby that there really is something for everybody.
Stew & Oyster is situated a short walk from Calls Wharf and was named the city’s best kept secret by Visit Leeds and has one of Leeds’s very best beer gardens according to iNews. Stew & Oyster Calls Landing specialises in …. stew and oysters (no surprise there). There is a wide variety of flavours available that range from the good old-fashioned chicken and mushroom stew to lamb mughlai stew and even a delicious seafood medley stew.
We are also very lucky to have the If Coffee Bar right on our doorstep. It opened in 2016 and is a popular choice with our clients at Calls Wharf due to its speciality coffees, beautifully prepared homemade dishes using locally sourced ingredients, fresh takeaway sandwiches and its fabulous cakes.
Every workplace needs a local “go to” café and ours is The Calls Sandwich Bar, just a short walk away. This bustling little gem is perfect for takeaway sandwiches, jacket potatoes and those sometimes much needed mid-morning bacon sandwiches.
They say that variety is the spice of life and because of our fabulous location we have an abundance of variety when it comes to dining options. We have Revolution de Cuba with its Spanish-Cuban twist, Ambiente with it’s amazing Tapas menu. Livin’Italy Dough House, which specialises in both new and classic Italian dishes and Las Iguanas which is famous for its South American inspired cuisine and cocktails.
Calls Wharf is also ideally located for public transport, it’s only 5 minutes by foot from Leeds train station and 10 minutes from Leeds bus station and for those more energetic types it has its own bicycle shed. Also, let’s not forget that its right on the banks of the River Aire. What a way to spend your lunchtime during the gorgeous summer months, taking the free water taxi from Granary Wharf over towards Leeds Dock and taking in the fresh view of the city.
Entertainment wise clients and visitors to Calls Wharf can take advantage of the Tetley Gallery nearby, based in the former headquarters of the Tetley Brewery. Here you can see a number of contemporary art exhibitions or attend workshops and special events. Alternatively, the Royal Armouries is also a short walk away, it is one of three museums across the country that houses one of the most important national collections of arms and armour in the world. The Royal Armouries is free to enter and should definitely be on everyone’s list of things to see in Leeds.
With all this mind we at Calls Wharf are extremely thankful to have such wonderful neighbours, that make working in the centre of this vibrant and thriving city so easy and enjoyable.
