The Adelphi

Victorian architecture, artisan spirits and favourites such as steak 'n' ale pies all come together to make The Adelphi a local institution. Head to the cosy Leeds pub for a weekly dose of quiz nights, Sunday roasts and live music.

The Scarbrough Hotel

In need of cosy Leeds real ales pubs? Just a stone's throw away from the station, The Scarbrough Hotel has an extensive pint selection waiting. But that's not all. The watering hole also whips up a range of seasonal dishes, burgers, classic comfort food and roasts.

Headingley Taps

Whether you're looking for a cosy boozer for date night or a catch up with friends, Headingley Taps will fit the bill. This top-notch spot is not only offering bottomless brunches, but is also perfect when you need hearty grub and low-key vibes.

Palace Leeds

Up there vowing for the spot of oldest pub in Leeds is Palace, a cosy boozer that started out life as a timber merchant's house in 1741, before becoming an inn about a century later. There's a fireplace, gorgeous high ceilings and quirky additions, like the huge iron clock, with real ale as the menu stand-out.

Head of Steam Leeds

Head of Steam will always be one of our favourite cosy and cool pubs in Leeds because of its open fire coupled with unique interiors. There's also a great selection of craft brews and hearty bar snacks on hand that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

The Lamb and Flag

Thanks to its welcoming features, The Lamb and Flag makes you feel toasty right from the outset. But it's not just a looker; the dog-friendly haven also cooks up an award-winning roast, meaning you and your woofers can both spend your Sunday at this charming pub.

Town Hall Tavern

Dating back to the 1900s - a little before central heating - The Town Hall Tavern knows a thing or two about keeping you snug as a bug. Grab a table with your nearest and dearest, wrapping your chops around some award-winning food, such as sausage 'n' mash, fishcakes and lamb shank.

The Midnight Bell

Step inside The Midnight Bell to find affordable pints and popular pub grub. Normally a big hit in the summer due to its mega beer garden, the bar also has cosy furninshings, a wood burning fire come winter and a great range of draughts from Leeds Brewery too.

Pack Horse, Leeds

The Pack Horse holds the title of one of the best cosy pubs in Leeds centre thanks to its age, making it a must for those of you after a traditional boozer. Settle into a comfy corner and enjoy a pint from their selection of cask ales, all whole chomping on one of their signature pies.
