Cleaned up but no changes to the lovely Victorian interior under new owners Brudenell and Kirkstall brewery. Obviously the beer choice majors on Kirkstall beers, so no problem there. Two banks of four pulls have four from Kirkstall plus four guests from far and wide. The keg choice is decidedly non standard on three t-bars. Even the ceiling rose in the tap room appears to be Kirkstall. Other than a poorly trained barmaid it was a fine drinking experience.

This is a Grade II listed building and was built in 1802. The pub is now owned by Enterprise Inns and they have invested a lot in their recent refurbishment. Some of the main internal features here were the ornate and elaborate cornice and arch work. I especially liked the corner niche, with leather upholstered buttoned banquette seating in the main lounge, the original glazed tiling also added splendour. There was a beautiful marble fireplace on the left hand side of the bar, which was lit on this occasion.
The bar was mahogany, with a clock high above the rear server. There was carpets throughout and walls were finished with a heritage designed wallpaper, curtains to match.
Three handpumps on the bar offering Timothy Taylor, Saltaire Blonde and their regular Otter bitter. The Otter was 3.6% and had good flavour. The staff here were welcoming and chatty. This pub is definitely worth a visit.
