Attraction details
Owner description: Local pub in the middle of Headingley showing all the sports action from Sky and BT, with an iconic beer garden and a big screen. Come enjoy a delicious meal from our diverse menu along with a cold refreshing drink from one of our drinks package deals. Or why not try one of our local brewery real ales with alternating guest ales. Celebrating? Our versatile function room is perfect for any occasion. Open every morning for breakfast until the late evening, we look forward to seeing you here at The Original Oak.

“Comedy night out”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Lovely place to hang out with friends/family and have a few giggles, if like me you booked tickets for the comedy night. Despite the Original Oak being so small they have had quite a few famous stand ups in the past and for cheap prices due to the venue being as I said small. The location is also quite handy, being in Kirkstall/Headingley area meant I had access to many other venues throughout the night and before the comedy show began. Recommended

“Best Pub in Headingly”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Great pub in Headingly! Food is average...but not the main reason to go. The main reason to go is the great beer garden! Perfect summer pub! if you are in Leeds area make sure you visit!

“Fantastic grub & pint”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

This was our first visit to the area and was recommended to try the lunch menu. It's got to be one of the best pub menus I've seen for a long time there was something for everyone. The lunch time deals are good value and the food is cooked fresh, the chips are amazing and the portions are generous so go on an empty stomach you won't be leaving on one that's for sure.

“The busiest pub in the UK!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The Original Oak in Headingly, is the highest grossing pub in the UK. There is a big reason for this, it's a great pub.
Surrounded by the students of Leeds University & a stones throw from Headlingly cricket & rugby ground, this pub is the business. Quality beers, massive beer garden with BBQ & lots of outdoor seating.
I popped in for a pint & cooked breakfast before a 20/20 Yorkshire game. Quality food & prompt service, so you can't go wrong!
