A traditional pub in alehouse style that seems unchanged from when I lived in Leeds in the early 90s, though I don't remember the beer garden. Possibly there are more beers on these days, with 14 listed on the board behind the bar. I saw six hand pumps in the right hand bar, with five beers one, and the barman confirmed that there were "more or less" 14 beers on altogether. My half of Roosters Yankee was in very good condition, but I still wished I had studied the options more carefully as it was a bit too light and frothy for me. I might have to come back another time and try some other beers.

Two-bar traditional city centre boozer.

Apparently there can be up to 15 real ales, but on our visit, there were 11. In addition to the regular Bridgehouse Blonde, Rooster's Yankee, Theakston Old Peculier & Timothy Taylor Landlord, they also had Rooster's White Rose, Timothy Taylor Golden Best, Yorkshire Heart Ghost Porter, Purity Pure Gold, Ossett Silver King & Yorkshire Blonder & Daleside Bitter.

Whilst consuming my Ghost Porter, I also noticed an old fellow drinking from an Old Rosie glass. I asked him if it contained Old Rosie. The answer was yes. They don't advertise it in case it encourages the idiots. I trust none read this page.

Probably the best new pub visited in Leeds on this visit.

this two sided pub is so friendly and a great place to spend a while in Leeds, even if just to absorb the excellent music they play. it was all Clash, Members, Adam and the Ants etc today. I was going to call it a rock pub but i think it’s just a pub that is passionate about good music. Lots of prints on the walls, very nicely done. I appeared to be sat in ‘Cabbage Corner’ !
