This is a friendly place with a social atmosphere. The modern environment welcomes dogs and there are some regular visitors. Interesting and extensive guest beers including cask ales and craft beers with some good stouts. Not for those who like a traditional old-world pub but drink-wise probably something for everyone. Food is also served - but not a vast choice... More

Lovely service here! I was welcomed by a friendly face at the bar, once me and my mum sat down we were handed menus, and within about 20 mins, someone had checked if we were okay to order so we did! Definitely a perk having table service! Would definitely go again!!

This bar is loosing it's way, the number of cask ales choices has reduced, and the staff appear indifferent. Keg now predominates over cask. One hand pump has gone and the blackboard is displaying ales that are not available. Time to get a grip!

Arranged to meet up with an old friend, he was in a wheelchair and the staff were very helpful. They opened the doors so he could get in easily. The food was good quality and I had problems finishing my fish and chips, another of my friends who was with us had to admit defeat and leave some of his... More

We've been to this bar a few times and generally had a decent time, it often lacks atmosphere but has a good selection of booze and decent grub. Sadly on this occasion the whole experience was poor. Right from the off the female bartender wasn't particularly friendly (verging on surley). It was quiet with only a few other people in... More

We chose this as a location for family Sunday lunch, post walk in the Hollies as they accepted well behaved dogs. We were pleasantly surprised by the food - we'd expected decent posh pub food, but the execution definitely matched the aspiration! They have a commitment to local sourcing, and offer a good value lunch deal Sun -Thurs. Standouts of... More

Driven past this place quite a few times and decided to go one Sunday evening with friends. When we arrived at 6:30 (within the Sunday food hours) we were told that they were not saving food. Utterly disappointed and won't be going back for another try.

I drink here regularly and love the regularly changing selection of Ales. It just doesn't tick the box of cosy local, or trendy bar. Im not sure it is 100% on what its trying to be. Its a nice place to meet for drinks thought.

I have passed this bar on numerous occassions and after a walk around Meanwood and Headingley on a beautiful sunny morning decided to call in for a coffee. A dog had clearly fouled the pavement directly outside the bar and people had walked in the excrement and then into the bar. The barrier mat between the two pairs of doors... More
