Blue Scrumpy left this review about Wapentake

Cafe bar situated close to a few other good Leeds pubs. With 12 of us descending on the place, I wasn't sure whether we would be able to get seats, especially with it being a matchday. However, as luck would have it, a slightly smaller group vacated the largest table in the ground floor room, just as we arrived.

We didn't venture upstairs, but did see food/snacks/drinks being delivered there. In addition, there was a small courtyard area at the rear.

Just the 2 real ales were on - Kirkstall Pale Ale & Ridgeside Io. It was only after ordering the Io that I spotted the Leeds Urban Harvest Leeds City Cider in a box in the fridge. I ordered that as well and it was a rather dry affair.

Agree with JAQPTIO, this is definitely a café bar. It was very busy on our Sunday afternoon visit with rugby being shown downstairs and football in the upstairs area. Due to the footy I couldn't really get a look at the upstairs. Friendly enough downstairs with 3 beers available. My pint was in good nick, but wasn't really to my taste. I wouldn't mind calling in again when it's not as busy.

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

Very much a café bar, with cakes on the counter as well as four handpumps. Eclectic mix of furniture and decor in the slightly split-level ground-floor bar and smaller upstairs seating area. Beer-wise, I found Acorn Barnsley Bitter, Sunbeam Break of Day (£3.40), Kirkstall Dissolution IPA and Roosters London Thunder. Quite good in its own way, but I did have a major problem with inconsiderate customers leaving the back door open with no thought for the rest of us on a windy winter day...

Real Ale Ray left this review about Wapentake

An interesting medium sized bar with a patio garden at the rear. The small and compact bar area was situated on the right of entrance, which was elaborately finished in a dark stained timber. Four handpumps with two in use and as luck would have it, Roosters Yankee and Kirkstall Three Swords, so I went for a pint of each and one was as good as the other.

Old Boots left this review about Wapentake

A long single room shop conversion into a cafe bar, sells all things Yorkshire food and drinkwise, although I'm not sure how Sharps Atlantic fits with that. Three of the four pulls had decently kept Leeds brews from North and Northern Monk. 10 keg founts with a variety of national and local brands, there are also gins and bottles as well as coffee and cakes. Plain decor with many arty photos and pictures, a map of each Yorkshire Riding and a helpful inscription telling you what a Wapentake was. Furnishing is all tables and chairs in a variety of styles and some high stools opposite the counter, it is very much a cafe-bar not a pub or bar. There is some sort of garden at the back and another room upstairs.
