|Sunday lunchtime visit to this Nicholson’s pub. I’ll come to the interior in a bit.|
Another Leeds pub that appears in the 2014 GBG so it was a tick that I had do.
Very large inside with the main bar to the right as you go through the front door, a long wooden and brass bar appears to your left and offers 9 hand pumps that on my visit were serving 6 different ales. My choice was Black Sheep’s Monty Pythons Holy Grail @ 4%. A very decent pint poured and topped up without asking by the friendly bar man.
As with all Nicholson’s pub there was the board up on the wall showcasing the up and coming ales.
Very ornate interior, coving, ceiling & hanging lights are lovely but the huge fireplace in the main bar as you enter is stunning, it’s a real talking point and should always be preserved.
Quiet on the Sunday lunchtime I visited, just 2 other punters who both ordered food, definitely worth another visit soon....really attractive pub with a good range of ales.
I’d like to come back at a busier time.

|Nothing I didn't like about this jewel. The St Peter's Mild was lovely; the bar is ravishing; the booths are great for small groups; the service was quick and cheerful; and the tasty food was reasonably priced.|

|Now 100% Nicholson branded but stillnothing taken away from its uniqueness.|

|The old place seems to have upped its game on service and so was back towards its best. A bit strange no TT in but a decent range of local ales and some from further afield.|

|Quite literally an architectural gem ! Even though it's a building. The beer used to taste like p*ss but this year it's improved so much it's quite drinkable. Actually quite nice actually. Sometimes. Free live Jazz from 9.30ish on Thursdays. There's a lottery for the band but they don't rig it even if you tell 'em it's your birthday. Bit mean I think. They're good but should vary their repetoire a bit more. It's now officially a crime to walk past this pub without popping in and having one !|
