Popped in last Sunday for a quick pint & ended up staying longer because the landlord's are so friendly. I didn't have lunch but the food looked superb the people I was chatting to loved the Sunday roast. Go you will not be disappointed

It was great to meet you on Sunday, it is always a pleasure to have a chat especially on a Sunday when the atmosphere in general is very relaxed and casual. I love working on a Sunday as I know that at some point I will also get a Sunday Lunch which is my favourite meal of the week (although I normally have two yorkies). It is great to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the beer to be of a high standard. It is always nice to see customers interact with each other and have a chat and a laugh, in my eyes that is what a pub should be. Whether it is a city centre pub or your village local, the pub is a place to meet new friends whilst having a good time. Thank you for leaving your review and hope you will call in again in 2014.

Regards

Jon

Visited for a late lunch today - had a sharing starter of crab cakes & breads; which was served with the most fantastic balsamic vinegar (and olive oil). The homemade scotch egg is also very very good.
Main courses were also of a high standard for gastro-pub food.

Overall, serving excellent food, great beer, in a homely environment...

In our opinion well worth trying out !

We called in during a Christmas shopping trip to Leeds
I must say the Fish and Chips was very tasty with home main tartare sauce - massive portion also.
My wife had the burger which was a nice size also. - and looked appetizing
Freshly cooked food was well worth waiting for.

Tha's nk you for your very kind review, the meals you ordered are some of the most popular dishes we sell, as you say well cooked homemade food does take a little while and the burger is flash fried and then oven roasted to ensure it stays moist and juicy. The haddock we sell is locally sourced and then cooked in our homemade beer batter.
Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you again in 2014

Leeds is full of great pubs and we are pleased to be one of them and that you consider us to be one of the best, as with most city centre pubs we get very busy and so everybody chatting and having a good time can become a little noisy at times. Your review pretty much sums up what we aim to achieve, quality food at reasonable prices topped off with cracking beers, lagers and wines. We also stock over forty whiskies, 20 gins and a dozen rums for those who like a top shelf tipple. Thanks once again for your review and hope to see you again soon.
Regards
Jon

Went to the tavern this week for the first time and had a top meal. Very friendly service, really good beer (of course) and the biggest and best scotch egg I've ever had! Simple food cooked very well. Keep up the good work.
