Decided to try after reading trip advisor reviews. Went on Saturday lunch as visiting Leeds for the day from Wigan.
Reviews do not lie. The quality of the gammon I had was excellent and the general presentation including thick cut chips in a basket, lovely sauce, egg and pineapple was also a feast on the eye as well as the taste.
Would certainly go again if visiting Leeds, being just outside the centre but opposite town hall. Only 3 minutes walk from TK marx and this is a better bargain than this shop. Staff very pleasant and pub modern inside and very inviting. Lovely place.

Thank you for your review, in just a few words you have summed up our pub. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and the food. We love the pictures of old Leeds and I would have loved to have experienced Leeds at the turn of the century. To have the pub described as a lovely pub is so nice and makes us all proud to be associated with The Town Hall Tavern.
Thank you once again for your review and we hope to see you again soon.
Sam & Jon

Decided to go into Leeds quite late on Saturday afternoon to shop but the weather turned wet so we changed our plans and decided to eat instead. Had read about the Town Hall Tavern on TA and we were close by so nipped in. What an amazing place, both traditional and modern with a really warm friendly atmosphere. We hadn't booked but the Host found us a table and our lovely waitress took our order. We shared a starter of ham hock and black pudding terrine with home made piccalilli which was tasty, it came with some crisp croutons and they brought us a couple of side plates which made it easier. My husband had the pie which had a mash topping, he said it was delicious, I had the home made scampi and chips which was fab, I enjoyed a glass of Sauvignon he had a pint both good. It's a small place so booking is advisable but it is well worth a visit and we will definitely return.
Forgot to mention the ladies - very cute indeed.

Thank you for your lovely review, the weather was very inclement as you say on Saturday but it was a good day as you found The Town Hall Tavern as a refuge against the vagaries of a British spring day. We are so pleased you enjoyed your selection of food. As you say we are a small place so we can get full very quickly. The ladies are indeed unusual but we will keep that a little surprise for potential customers. Corrina (your waitress) would like to thank you for your kind comments.
Thank you once again for taking the time to leave us a great review.
Regards
Jon, Sam, Corrina and all the THT team

Quality, locally sourced ingredients create excellent pub grub together with traditional ales. Friendly staff offer attentive service in a cosy atmosphere. Town Hall Tavern is the perfect place for Sunday Lunch or a pre-show meal on-route to the First Direct Arena.

Hi we loved your review title, we are indeed a small pub tucked in the city centre. To a lot of customers that is the attraction against the larger warehouse style chain pubs. Nearly all our suppliers are small independent business owners so we get a very personal service which ensures everything is top quality. Couple this standard of care with Timothy Taylor's excellent beers and we hope to offer the perfect experience for our customers. Our location does mean we are nearby for the Town Hall, First Direct Arena and the train station is only a few minutes walk away as well.
Thank you so much for your review and we hope to see you again on your next visit to Leeds
