I have just walked out of this pub in disgust. The bar staff just ignored us and served locals who had not been waiting as long as us at the bar. The staff didn't even make eye contact. Needless to say we shall never return!...More

The pub smells of disinfectant, and is a bit grubby. We paid £4.85 for a pint of Heineken and £ 4.20 for a pint of bitter, which in Leeds is more than you'd expect to pay for a "nice" pub. I've no idea where the...More

Didn't enjoy my visit here, which is a shame because of it's great reputation. Felt very very unwelcome, which doesn't normally bother me, but I just didn't like this place. Staff were rude, it was freezing in there and the atmosphere was sour.
