Back in the city centre, North Bar (New Briggate, just of
the Headrow) remains the benchmark for a continental
beer bar. Ever-popular, North’s mind-boggling selection of
local ales and world beers means that whatever your mood,
there’s a drink for you here. If you’re still undecided, the
knowledgeable staf will be more than happy to guide your
hand. Grab something unusual, relax and enjoy the local
art adorning the walls. Kirkstall Brewery, one of Leeds’
newer breweries, usually has a beer on ofer here.
Behind theTownHall, the Victoria and Commercial Hotel
ofers one of the best interiors in Leeds; frosted glass, cosy
booths and a long bar with a great range of beers to choose
from. Beers from Tetley, Timothy Taylor and Fuller’s are
regulars, and their beer festivals throughout the year bring
beers from other regions to you. When it comes to food,
their eclectic range of sausages are very popular.
Mr Foley’s Cask Ale House (Te Headrow, opposite
Leeds Art Gallery and Town Hall) is just what its name
suggests – a spacious pub with great beers on the bar from
local breweries such as Summer Wine and York, sitting
alongside rarities from the US and Scotland. Tere’s
usually a beer from infamous Scottish brewers BrewDog
on ofer, and the food at Foley’s is like the beer; hearty,
unfussy and tasty. If sport is your thing, Foley’s show all
major sports events in a relaxed atmosphere.
Just across from the Victoria is Veritas Ale and Wine Bar
(situated behind the Courthouse). Tis popular pub has
an excellent deli attached, serving the best of Yorkshire’s
cheeses, meats and breads. With a strong lean towards
Yorkshire ales, you can choose from local favourites such
as Mary Jane pale ale from Ilkley Brewery or Ridgeside
Brewery’s rich Brewer’s Reserve. Bright and modern, but
with one eye on great beer and food, Veritas is a welcome
addition to the Leeds pub community.
