History

Restaurateur Steve Ridealgh began his hospitality career the day after he left school in 1975.  Starting out at Pool Court Restaurant when it was still based in Pool-in-Wharfedale, Steve worked his way up through the ranks to become General Manager when the restaurant moved in with Brasserie Forty 4 on the The Calls in 1994.  When Pool Court (Leeds' only Michelin Starred restaurant at that time) closed at the end of 2005 Steve and Carol bought Brasserie Forty 4 and continue to run it to this day. A real family business with Carol, the Patisserie Chef, and son David is Head Waiter.

There are also a few members of staff who are almost family:

Shirley Hart - joined in 1994 and looks after reservations and all the back office administration.

Steve Adkins - Restaurant Manager who joined in 2001

Dave Robson - was here as Larder Chef during our 'Pool Court' years and returned as Head Chef in 2011
