The Malt Brewhouse

This craft beer haunt in Horsforth is the group day out spot for showing what you're made of in shuffleboard and catching a game of football, with a pint in hand of course. There's plenty of draft options on-tap and cask ales that are brewed on-site.

The Wardrobe

Sometimes nothing beats a refreshing pint of craft beer, and that's what The Wardrobe is here for. Head on over to this best-loved St Peter's Square location to sip on some lip-smacking brews, all while delving into mouthwatering burgers and catching some live entertainment.

The Lamb and Flag

Check into this snug Leeds craft beer pub and be treated to the full range of Leeds Brewery beers, meaning that you can get your locally-sourced fill of artisanal hops too. And while you're there, why not try their menu of delicious gastropub classics?

Tapped Leeds

This craft beer bar in Leeds love it so much that they cook it into their freshly made pizza doughs! And if that didn't prove their commitment enough, they've got 27 draft beers on tap, including 14 craft keg beers and 13 cask ales, as well as 100 bottled beers from around the world.

The Cross Keys

Over two centuries old, The Cross Keys know a thing or two about beers. Head into their pub on the bottom floor and you'll be treated to a wide range of cask stout and beers on tap that regularly change, which you can drink in their great beer garden. Oh, and they happen to have an award-winning Sunday roast too.


Bundobust is all about craft beer: it looks like a craft beer bar, it delivers an ever-rotating stock of the stuff, and the staff love it too. But they're unique selling point is the vibrant and varied Indian street food menu, which might be the perfect accompaniment to a great beer.

Head of Steam Leeds

This quirky little pub is also mad for craft beer. Come here for live music or cosy atmosphere and you can enjoy a selection of tasty craft and cask beers, as well as craft beers imported from around the world. And then you can feast on a selection of bar snacks, like nachos, burgers, meats and cheese.

North Bar

North Bar is pretty much the Leeds craft beer bar. Delivering artisanal brews from Europe and the US for over twenty years, beer lovers will be in heaven here thanks to their selection of never-seen-before and very-popular boozes.
