A look at three of Leeds’ most traditional pubs

With all of the trendy, chic restaurants and bars within Leeds, offering fancy cocktails and tasty dishes, sometimes you just can’t beat a good ol’ pint down a backstreet boozer! Here in Leeds, we have plenty of Pubs and Ale Houses to choose from, all of which are steeped in history and have that traditional, cosy feel to them. Taking a look at three of the most iconic pubs, we explore a little more as to why these are timeless, relaxed and important to the history of Leeds.



Over the course of April, we take a look at the upcoming events held at First Direct Arena and with a wide selection to choose from such as Music and Comedy to the much anticipated Europe’s Strongest Man Event, there is something for everybody! 


Have an eggsellent time at Temple Newsam!
