Jon B left this review about The Pen Factory

this is indeed a bit of a strange one and very difficult to rate - basically a tapas/small plates restaurant and set out for this in canteen style. Lots of CAMRA types were in, obviously for the beer and not the food, but there were also a lot of couples and groups enjoying expensive nights out. Real ales were three from Five Points and three from Kirkstall, and my porter from the latter was beautiful. I’ll make a note to come back for a meal but as a pub i’m not so sure.

Visited this 2019 Good Beer Guide pub, but it has to be said it no way resembles a pub. There is a lift to get disabled down to the lower ground floor, and it is a very large canteen style room with the kitchen at the bottom, the bar on the left hand side and doors out to a pleasant garden area on the right hand side. The masses of tables in front of the bar were laid for food, and the few tables at he back were for drinkers. Beer choice was Titanic First Class, Titanic Plum Porter, Sonnet 43 Abolition, Salopian Oracle and Tiny Rebel Juicy. We chose First Class and Abolition, both of which were fine.

This place, though still the same layout as an industrial canteen, has in recent times upped its real ale quality. Interesting and ever changing breweries are now to be found here. Happily there is always a dark ale on.

6/1/15:
Bar/Restaurant serving real ales and ciders. Run by the same lot who ran The Everyman Bistro next door. Has 6 pumps,4 were on, and 2 6 pump t-bars for Europops.
