After a period of closure, Fifty50 has re-opened as Southbank. Leeds CAMRA note that cask ale is no longer available.

Old Boots left this review about Fifty 50

A dining bar spread over 2 1/2 levels, upstairs is a split level bar while downstairs appears to be a more obvious dining type area. The rear mounted counter has two handpumps, only one running with a fairly decent pint of Pedigree served in one of Marston's new glasses. A BBB like Pedigree is maybe an odd choice for this type of bar but its ease of handling probably outweights any craft cred. The bottle choice shows a similar lack of attention and the kegs, while not the standards are fairly ordinary. There's a mix of stools round the edges by drinking shelves, they're in metal which wasn't so welcome on a cold day, there are a few tables set for eating and equipped with a mix of chairs and stools ranging from wooden drum shaped ones through plastic to leatherette banquette. In the lower front section a couple of leather sofas form a cozy area and in the big clear windows there are a couple more tables. There's a bit of exposed stone and some Edison bulbs, a little of the trendy grey paintjob, old board flooring and an interesting, if tired, front to the counter. It's not a pub but decent enough for a quick drink.

Fifty 50 is a bar that is situated on Boston Spa's high street.
Once inside there is a smallish split level room which is oblong shaped,the lower area has two normal tables and chairs and two leather settees,the bar is to the rear and up some steps,there are normal tables and chairs near the bar.
There was one real ale on which was Pedigree,this was a decent drink,food was being served and the background music was decent.
The bar was very busy on my Saturday afternoon visit.
It seemed very pleasant and friendly,the food also looked good.
