I called in on a Friday afternoon, the place was busy but not crowded. There was nobody waiting to be served but the barman ignored me and carried on chatting with a group of inibriated idiots at the bar. I was just about to leave...More

Great little bar, good selection of drinks and bar staff are always welcoming; it's always a great atmosphere on a weekend.

Great little place on New Briggate, good for craft beers. Only challenge is getting a seat, as the place really is corridor-like.

The beer selection in North Bar is always superb, but you do pay for it. The atmosphere seems to be either totally dead or packed to the rafters, I don't think I've ever seen it just seem steady. The staff can be somewhat surly too.

Hunted this bar out after an Internet search of pubs with Belgian beers and I wasn't disappointed. A nice little modern pub with choice aplenty. Also liked the photo booth and chalk message boards. Drinks aren't cheap but you expect to pay a premium for...More

It's great to see a dedicated beer house that totally overwhelmes you with choice. Most of the beers you may have never heard of or probably wouldn't try but thats the beauty of it. They also give the local microbreweries a chance and rotate hand...More

North bar is a small narrow bar with a massive wide range of beers and spirits. Great staff and a nice selection of tasty toasted snacks. Typical Leeds prices, eight quid for a couple of pints. Otherwise a great place for a few drinks.

Probably the first craft beer bar in Britain. A cosy gem serving a massively varied selection of quality drinks, plus teas, coffees, and light bites to eat. One of the original pioneers of the Leeds bar boom, North has an unparalleled beer selection, served brilliantly by friendly and informative staff. Winner of the Observer Food Monthly's 'Best Place to Drink in Britain award. North is Leeds' coolest haunt for lovers of great drinks, music and art.
