Leeds – We are officially open for Pizza.

It took longer than expected to get the place ready, but we are oven the moon with our new pizzeria and the team is beyond excited to welcome all guests to our new gaff.

The first-ever Rudy’s was in fact served 2014 in at the Tour de France, Yorkshire stage (which is why we decided to keep cycling jerseys on the wall!) so in some sense, we are back where it all began, and we couldn’t be more chuffed.

The Leeds community has welcomed us with open arms, our neighbors, our guests and this great northern city has made us feel like we are at home already.
