Martin Hicks, managing director of Weetwood Hall, said: “We’ve created a true destination restaurant to rival anything in the city centre. To have such a high quality establishment out of the centre will provide a real alternative to visitors looking for something different.”

Profits from Convive will be gift-aided to the University of Leeds.
