We visited The Adelphi on Friday 4th November 2016. I had been here before a few years back with my dad and Barry. The Adelphi is just south of the River Aire on a corner of Hunslet Road and Dock Street. It’s a particularly attractive pub both inside and out and sits across from another wonderful building a lovely brick built flatiron that looks majestic and imposing.
So inside this is a large multi roomed place, it is a really decent sized venue. On entry there is a large room and bar off to the LH side and continue on ahead where you are effectively in a sort of corridor the bar can be accessed from here as well. But really for me as much as anything is the look of this place, lovely tiling, lots of wood, and original etched glass, it is a seriously good looking victorian gem of a pub and apparently from what I’ve read it was the flagship Tetley Brewery pub, which doesn’t surprise me.
The room off to the left had a function of some sort going on we lingered in this passageway for a while. Beer choice was fine, nothing to get to excited about but a decent enough selection of local brews from the likes of Leeds and Kirkstall. We never lingered long, we were tired after a long drive up, an Italian meal and a couple of beers, so headed back to our hotel which was nearby.
