Downstairs and upstairs rooms with the bar to the left in the downstairs portion. Six hand pumps, none of which were particularly strong, but a decent selection of craft made up for that.

Six hand pumps, with two ciders and four real ales, plus eight keg fonts, would suggest that this would be a destination pub, but in reality I found it to be a pretty ordinary street corner bar, cramped for space and with little in the way of comfort or atmosphere. There was a wine-tasting class going on at the time of our visit, which the tutor had to interrupt to serve us our beers. We found these to be a little on the cold and therefore taste-free side of drinkable, and a bit pricey too at £3.60 a pint. There was an interesting sound track and a small gallery upstairs on the way to the toilet, but I find in my notes the phrase "is that it?". All in all, an underwhelming experience.

Date of visit: 23rd November 2015

A small corner bar and diner with the bar on the ground floor and more dining space and unisexual toilets upstairs.The counter down the back wall has six pulls, two serving ciders and a changing range of small brewery products on the others, I enjoyed a Cloudwater Pale. There are also eight keg taps in two banks, the beers being listed on a blackboard by the door. Pretty much everything is in laminate, floors and furniture, drinking shelf down one side by the large windows, this gives it the light, airy feel described by Peter Ashworth. Space is at a premium and furnishing is limited to a couple of refectory tables and bar stools.

The Brunswick is a three storey venue that classes itself as a bar,eatery and arts space that has been in a previous life a bridal dress shop and a Christian centre. This is yet another addition to the ever increasing and thriving Northern Quarter of Leeds,and consists of the ground floor bar with the first floor a relaxed dining and seating area and the second floor an arts space which will hold exhibitions and events with a rotating host.
Called in around 1-30 on a Wednesday and was impressed with the bright,clean and airy feel to the place and was even more impressed when a youngish gent sat on a barstool called me sir and offered me his seat.(Which proves that the age of chivalry is not quite dead)
There was 6 casks on the bar to choose from 4 ales and 2 ciders of which I opted for one of the pale ales which was of top notch quality.Enjoyed my short stay here where the both the customers and barman was friendly and helpful.
The bus stop back to the City centre is right outside the pub.

Opening its doors on 10th September 2015, The Brunswick is a bar, diner and gallery space, over three floors. There are, reportedly, five real ales and a cider on hand pump, plus craft kegs and a bottle fridge.
