About The Soap Factory
A designed-led eatery & cocktail bar located centrally on Whitehall Quay, Leeds. A great place to drop in and have a coffee or lunch with colleagues, or somewhere to sip tantalising cocktails with friends. Our main menu dishes are responsibly sourced, regional with a Yorkshire provenance when possible and taste really flavoursome.
A delicious afternoon tea and very good friendly service.
Fantastic afternoon tea for early mothers day treat thank you great food and service x
A great place near to the railway station. Inside modern and clean. Staff helpful but slow on taking our drink order and food. Food very nice fresh and hot. Would come again.
Cosy fab night
Service was good-food was lovely
Really enjoyed our visit to the soap factory to celebrate my Mother in laws 77th birthday. We had afternoon tea and it was delicious, service was impeccable and the place was lovely. Definitely be back.
Took a long time for the cocktails we have ordered to come we had eaten half of our afternoon tea before they arrived and that was because we has asked how long they was going to be..
Great place in terms of the look and build, service was very poor as I booked a table online I expected a reserved table which was not the case. Was seated anywhere, and while eating a employee pushing a trolley which was carrying dishes rammed into my seat. Not many guest were at the restaurant so I didn't see a strain on staff yet didn't feel welcomed enough. Food was great and value for money, such a shame it was a let down by the service.
We came here in July and the food was amazing! The soapy joe burger is my favourite. We live an hour and a half away and decided to come back for my fiancé’s birthday because the food was so amazing. Thankyou! We will definitely be back.
We have been a few times now and love the soap factory the staff are friendly and helpful will keep coming back
Hi, sandwiches were mostly bread with not much filling, strawberry tarts were very soggy, scones were very good! Left feeling hungry and very disappointed, staff busy with bar, although not many people in. Drinks ordered, some not delivered but still charged for! All in all I won’t be recommending or returning! Very disappointed & was for my nieces hen party so not happy!
Enjoyed are visit! Only fault was we had to call staff over to ask about menu n drinks..Had send one meal back as undercooked an never got an apology,an had to take home to eat as took to long to redo,staff nice but don’t put self about enough!
Was a Christmas gift for my friend and it was brilliant. Will defo recommend and will be back X Great selection of cakes.
Staff were very attentive and also provided balloons as requested which went a long way for our small celebratory afternoon tea - thank you so much.
Service was slow, wasn't greeted and waited at the bar to get told we just grab a seat. Parking is £12 a day around the back. Food was delicious however the drinks did not taste nice.
I booked a normal table yet was served a cream tea even though I didn’t order one
Amazing afternoon tea at a very reasonable price. Staff were very friendly-will definitely be booking here again!
4 times of having afternoon tea at the soap factory. Great service and value for money
Little savouries could replace a couple of the deserts x
We were very happy with the service and the wide selection on the menu. The portions were also generous. One of us had the vegan pizza that was lovely but it would have been improved by the addition of vegan cheese (as used in Pizza Express and Zizzi).
2nd visit and food yet again amazing. My only criticism and it’s very minor is that the tart au citron which is tangy and delicious has quite soggy pastry, this has happened on both visits. I’m not sure if they are frozen and left to thaw out which makes the pastry soft or not but the pastry should be crisp. Only a small issue with an otherwise perfect afternoon tea.
Great Christmas lunch; good food and great service
