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.

Small, well stocked, constantly changing, action packed and full of atmosphere.

Iíve been going to North Bar since it opened about 16 years ago. A real trailblazer in the craft beer scene and still going strong. Expect the best of British, Europe and some real exciting specials from America. They put on some great events, meet the brewer, tap takeovers and themed festivals (Oktoberfest, Lowlands, US) and I do love Orval day. One of North Barís strengths is their staff, welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about beer. Yes itís pricey and you may need a second mortgage if you want anything from the fridges. Always ask how much something is before you order. As for as Leeds (if not West Yorkshire) this is where it all began!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Really good selection of local and international beers. nice cafe style ambience and it gets some bonus points from me because Belle and Sebastian was on the stereo when I was there. Food and wifi was available.
