Still open in January 2018 and full of punters watching the footie. Decent pint of Leeds pale on the bar and a good quality dart board to keep us occupied for an hour.

A nice double tap with the Fox & Newt, with a set of steps connecting the two.

Reports of The Highland's closure have been rather premature. The pub is still very much open, but the threat from developers Depho is ongoing. A recent review in the Yorkshire Evening Post notes that staff, regulars and now Leeds Civic Trust are fighting the pub's cause.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Highland

Friendly community pub in an odd bit of no-man's-land between Burley Street and Kirkstall Road. Wedge-shaped bar and a side room. Simple decor but quite comfortably furnished. Three real ales on handpump: Tetleys Cask, Leeds Blonde and another blonde beer (the name of which now escapes me, but was £2.70 and in good condition). Worth searching it out if in the area.

Old Boots left this review about Highland Inn

A surprising survivor amidst the cheap hotels, ring road stores, and low rent, high rise in the Kirkstall Road area, although not far from the Fox and Newt and easily reached down a flight of steps from Burley Street just west of the F&N. A Victorian building that looks to have been made over in the 1900s, 1930s and again fairly recently but retaining features from all periods. Three pulls with decent Tetley Cask, Leeds Pale and Everards Tiger on sale, served by a friendly barmaid. It is one long room where originally there would have been two or three, one end is more of a lounge extended by the removal of a corridor and in addition to benches and tables it has leaning cushions fixed to the walls on one side. The other larger area has a nicely panelled bar counter down one side and benches, tables and chairs down the other. Simple décor with a couple of big screens and ironically in the year Tetley's moves out of Leeds, a poster from the 1923 centenary of Tetley's Brewery with the legend “Here's to the next hundred years”. A very popular locals pub, busy with a good vibe and mix of ages.
