It's got a beatnik vibe but some of the furniture is dropping to bits & some of the old school stools damage your clothing. They seem to run it with too few staff so it's dirty & the toilets are not cleaned often enough. It's a shame because it's popular & a deep clean would go a long way. The... More

Decent rustic bar selling nice beer. The windows get a bit steamy and quite a few dogs with owners come here which is fine my me.

If someone had asked us to design and describe our ideal local bar it would be Preston Bar. We moved round the corner then realised our dream bar was our local! Great atmosphere, all ages welcome, friendly and efficient staff, real ale selection is varied and well kept, good wine choice, dogs welcome. A proper local bar in an old... More

Whilst we can't fault the service, the prices were above what the beer was worth. The surroundings are nice, and it's far better than a standard national chain pub, but it comes across as a bit pretentious/ try-hard. The insanely wacky chalk board in the toilet probably gives you an idea of the target market. It is nevertheless a good... More

First time I went earlier this month. Very 'north bar' feel to it. Atmosphere very like a living room and could distantly hear everyone's conversations. Probably great for quick beer after work or an all night haunt. Great to see this in north leeds..

I was here for drinks on Saturday daytime. The barman was really lovely, the beer was great, atmosphere was brilliant and it wasn't expensive. My only minor gripe was the crisp selection but even I can't mark somewhere down for that!

Nice little bar, still a large range of draught and bottled beers though. Fairly reasonably priced, you can get a few of the beers around the £3-4 mark, which given the quality and that they are lesser-found beers was pretty good I think. Had the Tribus 1.2 from Ilkley Brewery, pretty nice and not badly priced at £3.90. Partner had... More

Great beers. A huge and interesting selection. Cool and quirky inside. You can keep your own tankard/glass there and hang it on the wall. It can get very humid inside with the door shut!
