Ian Mapp left this review about Leslies Bar

Unchanged pub from 1899 - with a central bar that takes some getting too... the snob screens on the left hand side mean you cannot see the beers - the alternative is to fight your way through the bar hangers on stools on the right hand side.

Plenty of old school pub memorabilia to look at.

Was in the 2018 Good Beer Guide but not the 2019.

Timothy Taylor Landlord a lovely find.

Proper old style interior as described below and well worth the short trip from the city centre. The central island bar serves 6 real ales,"craft keg" and keg.

As noted in the reviews below, Leslie's is justly famous for its interior architecture and decor. The ornate ceiling is particularly noteworthy, although I wasn't so sure about the current thistle themed wallpaper. It was built in 1899 by noted pub architect P. L. Henderson and the mahogany island bar is apparently almost unaltered since then. Mainly a drinking pub, with six real ales and several malt whiskies on offer, but no substantial food in evidence.
