Family run café

A Leeds-based traditional craft cafe, we serve delicious home-made food, made with locally sourced produce, including a range of teas, coffees and cakes.

rivers MEET hosts a range of events in our function room, including craft fairs, live music and theatre. 

Our function room is available to hire and contains a small licensed bar. It is an ideal venue for exhibitions, baby showers, children's parties, hen parties, funeral wakes, training, meetings, interviews and rehearsals. A variety of catering options are available.


The function room can also be used for craft workshops and rates are available for tutors to book the room and handle their own bookings.

Craft workshops & classes


We host a wide range of workshops and regular classes; from sewing and painting to children's classes and quilting. Looking for a regular 'drop-in' class? Why not try out our book club, knit & natter or W.I. meetings?

Additionally, keep checking our Events page for information on upcoming fairs, pop-up shops and more.

We are also home to The Shop at rivers MEET and we offer a wide range of craft supplies and gifts.
