The Crowd of Favours is situated on a side street which is fairly close to Leeds bus station.
Once inside there is a fairly long oblongish shaped room with the bar facing and running the width of the pub,the floor is bare boarded,the seating is normal tables and chairs and chunky wood tables.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Leeds Best which went down very well,the other beers i noted were Leeds Pale /Midnight Bell /Yorkshire Gold,plus a guest beer called Collingham Journeyman and one from Five Towns brewery.
I managed to get a seat in this pub and thought it was quite a nice laid back pub to have a drink in,funky background music was playing during my early Saturday evening visit.
This was quite a nice pub to end my crawl in.

Much better looking on the inside than the outside, this is a neat two storey bar. Well described below by PSM which saves me the trouble. The bar was buzzing on my Friday evening visit and my pint was in very good condition. I suspect Ms CAMRA will love it, so I've no doubt I'll be coming back here.

The Crowd of Favours is an unusual, modern bar operated by the Leeds Brewery, housed in a former fish and chip restaurant in a rather unfashionable part of town. The bar presents a smart, if somewhat bland, image on approach, but once inside, there are a few interesting features that make it stand out a bit. On the left hand wall for instance, there is a large, slightly surreal, graffiti-style piece of art covering the entire wall. The exposed floorboards appear to have been retained from the restaurant and the rest of the ground floor has been fitted out with a mix of seating options, much of which looks like reclaimed furniture, which seems to be in vogue with this sort of bar at the moment. The large, open right hand end of the room had more standard seating options and looked like it would be the obvious choice for anyone hoping to enjoy some food. The room has been decorated with a lot of old pictures and various bits of brewerania, which is also a theme in the large, open plan cellar bar downstairs. This space has plenty more seating, an upright piano and exposed brick walls and I thought it was quite aesthetically pleasing. Food is served most of the day and a quick glance at the menu revealed most mains around the £10 mark, which seems to be par for the course in Leeds Brewery pubs.
Two banks of hand pumps offered four Leeds ales - Pale, Gold, Best and Gathering Storm - and three guests in the shape of Collingham Winter Warmer, Sonnet Ultimate Sacrifice and Red Willow Heartless with the last clip reversed. The Heartless was in good condition and went down very well. I was also quite happily enjoying the Winter Warmer until Ray, not unreasonably, pointed out that I was drinking his pint. Sorry Ray!
I think I marginally preferred this pub to the Brewery Tap although they both have their good and bad points. This place seems to have a lot going for it, with live music, quizzes and a cinema night and provides an interesting counterpoint to the neighbouring Duck and Drake.
