Traditional Pubs in Leeds

We’ve got you covered if you prefer your pint with a side of history

For many people, the best pubs in Leeds are the oldest ones. The city is steeped in history and you can find a number of watering holes that have centuries of pint pulling behind them.

These are the pubs that have British culture running through their taprooms like letters in a stick of rock: the smells, interior decoration, real beer and roaring fires in the winter. So when you arrive in Leeds by LNER train, where should you head for an authentic ale and maybe some classic pub grub? We’ve picked a few of our favourites.
