The Scarbrough Hotel, Leeds

Gawd bless the Scabby Taps! Because it has very good beer and perfectly decent food. And good service from the bar staff. Think very long and hard about excluding the Taps from any real ale crawl through the city centre. I'm afraid I must agree with Leeds Stew though, on the lack of atmosphere. If motorway service stations did real ale pubs - which they clearly ought to do - they would be like this: good beer, good food but a slightly unsettling feeling that everyone is in transit. Perhaps because the train station is just over the road?

The Grove Inn, Holbeck

Fabulous ! A proper down-to-earth Victorian pub that hasn't been knocked through and made into an open plan nightmare. Live music is often on in the back room, but you can't hear it when the door closes so for those of us for whom it's all about the beer... The cellarman looks after his ales with the same kind of zeal you'd expect from a muslim beer janissary, and the locals are wierd. What more is there to say about The Grove ? A thing of great beauty and a joy forever !

Craven Arms, Appletreewick

Tip top ! Excellent beer - very often from Saltaire Brewery :-) but other stuff also quality. The food is expensive but worth it.
