Itís situated very close to the central railway station. As yet another William Nicholsonís pub you know what you get Ė decent food and good range of cask ales. However, this is not the best among the Leeds pubs in the chain. I would prefer other Nicholsonís pubs like Victoria Hotel and Palace to this one, especially when it comes to range of ales. I had a St Austell Pale Ale with a tasty pie. (Visited 12.07.2012).

Visited on 23/06/09. Well placed by the train station, but beer range was rather dull, with the likes of Tetleys, Black Sheep, London Pride and Sharps Doom Bar on offer. The least impressive of the four Leeds pubs visited on the day.

A classic pub on the road below Leeds city station, this strangely curving building has been a bastion of real ale for years. The range has been slightly trimmed but quality is now excellent and the throughput of casks means you may see one change every 30 minutes or so. A great range of (mainly local) real ales; 2 minutes from the station via the surreal spiral staircase (which still smells of piss!)
