It's been several years since I last visited the Head Of Steam and I don't believe I've reviewed it on here previously. So I paid it a return visit on Thursday. The pub is directly opposite Central station. It is on the first floor of the building. I felt it always had a rough feel to it. But it felt decidedly less edgy on this visit and it may have had a refurb. The ale range was decent - Leeds Pale, Exit 33 Nicaraguan Rum Stout & Light Weight, Brinkburn Canny Sculler & Camerons Blue Mountain Jamaican Coffee & Rum Ale. The cider was Woodhall's Wizard's Sleeve. I enjoyed a swift half of the Camerons beer before moving on. I'm sure I'll be back much sooner.

Modern first floor bar across the road from the station. Good selection of beers that were well kept.

Head Of Steam pubs are now part of the Camerons empire. This has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Up to six real ales on from Camerons and other local breweries. Well worth a trip up the stairs.

The beer I had was exceedingly warm, too warm to enjoy. From the other comments I am guessing this is not normally the case. Thought the atmosphere was OK.

The pub didn't look welcoming at all from the outside, it is probably like this all of the time, but looked even worse, being covered in scaffolding - inside, it's a little dingy, and yes, even a little smelly, whilst some of the women in our group looked questioningly why we were in there - Still reading ?
Well, the pub has one saving grace, and that's the decent selction of real ale served on the bar - whilst ever real ale remains relatively 'rare' in city centre's this pub will be okay, but if this becomes more prevalant, then this pub will just become a bit of a hole without the 'different' ale to attract people in.
If you like real ale, then visit for one - If not, then maybe a walk past is in order
