    Leeds again Jan13.
    One of the party claims not to have been, so we'll probably be mostly confined to centre but, as the other 3 have done several visits, are there any recommendations for a couple 10-15 min train or bus ride out? Not the Garden Gate, beer was awful after a taxi ride there last time.
    Cheers, tm

    Chapel Allerton springs to mind as a reasonable destination, https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/areas/c...est-yorkshire/ The Regent and Further North are the best but the 'Spoons isn't bad and neither is The Woods. No train but buses are frequent from the city centre, 2 and 3/3A or 36 take about 15 mins. The buses go past the neat group of bars at the top of Vicar Lane/New Briggate as well (North, Templar, Belgrave, Brewdog/Shuffle Dog, Reliance and Brunswick etc)

    I am doing a Kirkstall Road crawl soon, https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/areas/k...est-yorkshire/ the two best there are (in reverse order) the New George and the Kirkstall Bridge, the buses (33/33A, 97, or 508 or 757) back to the city centre go past the The Cardigan Arms, a gin palace recently restored by Kirkstall brewery which I need to visit soon, it's also not far from Fox & Newt which is good in a studenty way and between the two is The Highland a more down to earth ex Tetley's pub and currently under threat. By the way don't get a train to Kirkstall Forge it's miles away from any pubs; the outbound buses stop round the corner from Leeds railway station in Wellington St.

    Close to the station is the Holbeck collection, The Midnight Bell, The Cross Keys , Northern Monk Refectory (How Much!!), and the semi-legendary The Grove Inn plus a couple of Ossett pubs. All are easy to reach via the new southern exit by platform 17 but you've probably done them.

    Shipley and Saltaire are about 10-15 mins on the train and there's plenty there, a day on its own is usually needed for those two places and I bet you've done them too.

    First, the good news. United are playing away at Ipswich, on the 13th, so the town centre, whilst still busy, won't be unbearable.

    Like 'oldboots' I'm very keen to visit The Cardigan Arms, but it is quite isolated. The tie in to Kirkstall makes sense. According to Google maps, it's a mile between the CA and The New George, so about a fifteen minute walk. However, The West End House and Kirkstall Bridge Inn are then close by.

    Other possibilities are a short walk beyond North Bar, over the ring road to The Reliance and The Brunswick. Both are quite modern, but on a recent visit the beer quality and choices were good.

    Headingley is only a ten minute bus ride out of the centre and has a glut of drinking establishments, the pick of which are Arcadia, The Head of Steam and Woodies.

    Alternatively, it's possible to walk out towards the university and take in The Fenton, The Eldon and The Pack Horse. The Pack Horse is the furthest out, so you could catch a bus to Woodhouse Moor and then do them in reverse whilst walking back into town.

    You really need to go to Whitelocks and write a review. Get your mates to write reviews too - we need to knock the recent effort by Ethelred off the front page!
