The Empire, Fish and Chip restaurant, takeaway and drive through

The Empire restaurant


The Empire restaurant opened in 1995 amongst much hype, the movie themed restaurant was highly talked about when it first opened and was even featured on the 'Big Breakfast' show for the most amount of Fish & Chips served in an hour.

Tucking into a plate of the finest Fish & Chips is always something of an occasion - but at the Empire licensed themed restaurant it becomes a really special event.

The Empire restaurant, the former cinema alongside the A61 at Outwood, between Wakefield and Leeds, from the outside brings back fond memories of a bygone age of old-fashioned entertainment. Step inside, however, and you will be in for a big surprise, for you will find yourself in a modern air-conditioned licensed restaurant which, at the same time, has preserved much of the character and atmosphere from its cinema days.

Proprietors Sheila and the late Brian Cooper have gone to great lengths to keep the cinema theme running throughout the restaurant, with memorabilia ranging from the golden age of the cinema up to the modern era.

Everywhere you turn there are classic posters, photographs of film stars, even old cinema projectors, while one corner of the restaurant is dominated by a big screen screening 60's and 70's music videos to watch while you eat.

As well as loving the food, diners will enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere and the fact they can take advantage of the children’s menu and special offers for senior citizens.

The extensive menu is divided into 'Curtains Up' (starter) and 'The Empire Main Event' (main course) sections and offers plenty of choices beyond Fish and Chips, the Empire also offers a well-stocked licensed bar.

Groups and parties looking for a venue with a difference are welcome to make a booking – and don’t forget the Empire’s takeaway and drive-through service.

The Empire restaurant offers full facilities for the disabled with easy wheel chair access from the ample sized free car park.
