About Elder

Welcome to Elder – our restaurant and bar situated on the arcade level of The Piece Hall, Halifax.

We serve up quirky British food with our alternative take on the great British larder.

Open daily serving brunch, lunch and dinner matched with a great wine list, craft beers and locally roasted coffee.

Who we are

Elder comes from the team behind Yorkshire based The Bootleg Belly pop-up restaurants-  touring random locations across the north of England, Scotland and Wales testing out flavour combinations of all things British, tasty and different.

Owner and Head Chef Justin Thomas started out in catering at restaurants in London and Leeds, including Head Chef at Kendall’s Bistro and Head of Food Development at Friends of Ham.

We are now excited to be settled in the stunning setting of the Piece Hall – to focus on creating a place people can enjoy great food and drinks in an informal yet attentive environment.

We don’t take lunchtime bookings on Saturdays & Sundays between 12- 3pm – due to the size of the venue we operate on a first come first served basis during this time and will get you seated as soon as possible.

If we’re full when you arrive, we’ll add you to a waiting list and let you know when your seats are ready. In the meantime, you can grab a drink at the bar or there are plenty of places nearby.

We also have counter seats available for walk-ins. Please note that reservations of two to four may be seated at the bar.
