Arguably the best range of beers in Leeds, or maybe West Yorkshire. As well as the ales thereís a more interesting lager selection than your usual tripe and the bottled menu is superb too, although the prices here are above average. The bar itself is easy to miss with its small window and door in the middle of a row of shops in the commercial centre of Leeds. Its own sign is not exactly prominent. Inside itís long and thin and doesnít ascribe to the comfortable pub mentality preferring the minimalist bar approach. None of this puts the masses off though.

It was unsurprisingly a packed house on a visit during the evening. Solid tap list with a mix of US and Euro offerings. Cask and bottles are also here with the handpulls given over to regional breweries. Energetic vibe in this place.

Quite a modern type of bar a little off the beaten track, we walked past it twice looking for it, so not the most obvious place. Good selection of Taps to go for with a mostly Yorkshire theme when we were there, also a decent range of bottle beers, if somewhat pricey. A definite one to visit whilst in Leeds.

Four casks, three from Roosters Brewery and one from BrewDog, in addition to +10 taps displaying beers from USA, Germany and Belgium. Good range of bottled beers, too. Tasty local cheese to go with the beers. More a modern little and narrow bar, some would perhaps say retro bar, than a classical English pub. Polite service. Very relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended (visited 11.07.2010).

Great place to come for a varied taplist of British craft beers - likely the best in the city. Bottle list is good too, but the prices are absurd on those - prices are reasonable for draught. Service is very friendly and the establishment is very cozy. Highly recommended place to come to in Leeds.

One long room, definitely not a traditional pub. Decent mix of foreign and domestic taps. Nice music, played at a reasonable sound. Reasonably priced, informed staff. Lots of spirits . The selection was pretty surprising, lots of gems, like Salty Kiss, Holy Cow, Croucher Val Am on tap. The more I hang out at this place the more I love it. I guess it feels too much like a bar in N America when I first arrived so I had a negative basis, as I am looking for an English pub, but really this place is cool as fuck. Loved the music, chilled out staff and laid back vibe. Rate initially 76, then 82, but this has to go higher. One of my favs in the UK, which really surprises me as when I arrived I would have never thought so.

Great little bar, obviously a shop conversion, which has three cask ales (with occasional stillaged beer too) but itís the foreign draught and bottles beers it best to come here for - the range changes frequently so itís a plan to peer over the bar into the fridges to see whatís on sale. The staff are very sociable and will give tasters of draught beers. All in all, a cracking little place and a great addition to the scene.

Visit on a Tuesday night, was quietish. Excellent, large not huge, beer selection, friendly girls behind the bar. Didnít eat. Like a small low key Northern bar with eclectic music and nice beer drinking atmosphere.

Continental-style bar tucked away up New Briggate. Couple of cask ales, plenty of continental draught (Jever, Erdinger Dunkel, Dortmunder) and a decent selectionof bottles tending towards the Belgians. Guest continentals and bottles too. i prefer it during the day before the club crowd hit the place. Chilled music, good staff, decent beer at not-too-silly prices for a city centre bar.

Pretentious, student vibe cafe/bar. Good selection of beer, but caught very rude staff on a Saturday night. Seems I was bothering the nice lady behind the bar by asking for drinks. She was much more interested in reciting rehearsed beer information to uninterested customers. Shame because it has a cracking beer selection albeit rather expensive.
