Brainy Pool left this review about The Bridewell

As below: very nice pint of Kirkstall pale at a reasonable enough £3.40 and a good selection of beer styles across the five handpumps. For a new pub it’s really good and certainly a nice antidote to the trendiness around this area. Lots of areas to sit including an upstairs bar. On this visit downstairs was packed and upstairs deserted. Pleasant.

I'd been doing a crawl of heritage pubs, but when I saw in a local Camra newsletter that I picked up in the Belevedere that this place had reopened, I had to come and see. Ok, it's not a heritage pub, but when a gaol is made into a pub, that has to seen. And yes, it's perhaps more of a tourist attraction than a pub, but in fairness the new owners are making an effort on the real ale side of the business. But as I discovered, they employ someone whose job is to engage people in conversation and show them around. We confined our chat to the correct chronological sequence of late Beatles and early John/Paul/George singles, which as far as I know is something I haven't talked about in a pub before. At least, not in conversations I was sober enough to remember the next day. I had a quick look at the cells, but didn't put my claustrophobic tendency to the test by actually going inside. My half of Kirkstall Pale was in excellent condition and I enjoyed my visit here.

Now reopened and as before is called The Bridewell. The interior is exactly the same and there are 5 handpulls for real ale. Beers today were from Wylam, Kirkstall, Hawkshead, Lancaster Bomber and Wainwright.
