I have visited Leeds a few times now, and I have to say that it is quite a nice city. The photos in this blog post definitely don’t do the city or its pubs justice, and so I will have to return and do a more thorough analysis, specifically of the lovely pubs along Briggate.
I sampled this ale for the first time in December in The Victoria Hotel in Leeds, but have had it elsewhere in Leeds since.
