Stopped in with Josh so he could check the quality of the Ghost beers on tap. Long narrow place, lots of light wood and a chocolate dog. Nice varied selection of beers, good prices, great service, and free water on the bar for all. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in July 2015, strolled though the City centre and arrived here, itís a long bar with 70s school furniture. Landed during an American beer festival so tried a couple, well looked after and service also friendly. Not a massive range so moved on. Itís a good place but think there are now better in Leeds

Not quite sure what happened here but I am convinced that I had reviewed this place in the past, so a little confused. I have been here on two occasions with Loz, in February 2014 and again the same month this year, also visited about 3-4 years ago with dad and Barry. This is a great little bar, it was smaller than I expected, itís narrow but longish. The bar is ahead on the LH side as you enter with seating all down the RH side, the layout reminds me a little of a diner. It has a great selection of beers on keg, cask , and bottle and you can see why this has been the top entry for Leeds now for a few years. I have been here both during the day and late at night and if coming at night be prepared to stand as itís popularity means it gets very busy. The staff are top notch, knowledge, friendly and chatty added to that they play some great tunes. Jackson C Frank on my last visit as well as some other corking tunes. I seem to recall that we were drinking Kernel and Anarchy beers on our last visit. I guess this is a little further up town from Friends of Ham, Bundobust Tapped etc, but with Belgravia Music Hall just a very short walk away you have even more reason to go here, both are great venues, if this is busy then go to Belgravia Music Hall as it is huge in comparison and you should be fine there, come back here afterwards. Really like this venue, decor wise I havenít ever taken much notice and itís often quite a dimly lit place, but it always appears tidy. A great bar you should definitely seek out.

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.

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.

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).

2015-09-26. Small but pretty cool. Nice art on the walls, solid selection of taps and casks. Friendly bartender chatted with us a bit about the rugby and gave some tips for other pubs and things to do in Leeds. There was a large pretty solid bottle list that is heavy on UK and Belgian bottles. We stuck with the cask and draught options but grabbed a (somewhat pricey) bottle or three to go (though this was partly because the local bottle shops had closed before we could make it!) Lots of tables which was a nice change from London, though there were at a premium when we returned Sunday night after the rugby game. Photo booth in the corner is neat, I didnít actually test it to see if it works. Flights of three 1/3 pints available. Decent tap list is nice, with a good number of new beers for us but only a handful impressed us today. Well worth a visit.

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.
