Will Larter left this review about Whitelocks First City Luncheon Bar

I lived in Leeds from 1985 to 1997; my daughters were both born in this city and we often used to come here after doing our shopping in Kirkgate Market. I always liked the fact that it was not only a unique and wonderful pub, with a yard in which it was possible for the kids to have their coke and a packet of crisps, but it also had a unique and wonderful name: Whitelocks First City Luncheon Bar. The interior was wonderful too, though of course if they were sitting outside then so was I. The yard is a bit more presentable these days - a benefit of the Covid restrictions - but I drank my beer inside as it was quite busy at around 7pm, but quieter indoors. A massive choice of 10 or so hand pumps, and it was good to see the bar staff dealing in a friendly and helpful way with enquiries from what were obviously first time customers. It's usually said that this pub is hard to find, though with a map on every phone that no longer applies, and this is now a bit of a tourist attraction. My half of Elland 1872 Porter was as good as I can remember - I had several bottles at home during the second lockdown, but this is my first from the cask in about three years. I'll have to come back soon, and if the 1872 is not a regular there's always Old Peculier.

Covid Special
No entry without details here, booking is obviously desirable, conducted to table as it’s table service /card only, quiet on my visit but still slowish service.

Lovely preserved interior that has been described a trillion times already, nice atmosphere and about seven or eight ales on with a variety of styles. abrupt service though - not my fault if you don’t know which pump is dispensing the beer i asked for. The £2.20 i shelled out for a half was just about worth it to drink in here.
