Came in here after a visit to the Pack Horse which is just around the corner. Couldn't have been more different. The place was busy without being packed, decent atmosphere and a good traditional feel. I liked all the polished brass and copper and the relatively high bar that allows the staff to look down on the punters :-)

Quite a wide ale selection but unfortunately I was working the next day so restricted myself to a couple. Had the Kirkstall Black Band Porter which I enjoyed, even though I'm not always a porter fan. And then a Kirkstall Yorkshire Pale Ale - excellent pint. Two good pints from a really local brewer and friendly efficient service.

Recommended.

Just by dint of the fact that you have to negotiate an obscure alleyway, this is a must visit and while modernisation has come, it's generally been of the sensitive variety - my slightly ridiculous fennel and orange imperial porter was tasty albeit a little off the scale. My partner enjoyed a robust IPA and for the most part, this remains a good place to come to.

A great old pub with a good ale selection ,but near London prices.

I like Leeds. I like Whitelocks. There's plenty of money sluicing about in this fine, international, Remain-voting city, and understandably the good folk who run Whitelocks would perhaps like some of that.

So, the prices are what you'd expect really, especially as it's a small place, and it can be filled with relatively few customers.

I had no quibbles then, about paying the going rate for fine ales in good company, and in interesting surroundings, during an afternoon family get-together last New Year's Eve. It was quite a wheeze, seeing ourselves from a variety of jaunty angles in all the mirrors too. (Oh, how we chuckled, tsk.)

I suppose that if I'd been of the train-spotter mindset, then I could have ducked down the alleys to the other pubs off Briggate, but that was low priority on this occasion.

I see that the vitrina-painted windows still say Turks Head, and I wonder what was materially gained, by changing the name to the mouthful that is Whitelock's First City Luncheon Bar all those years ago?

Whatever, it's eight-out-of-ten, and "see you again", from your faithful reporter.

Nearly missed this place as it is tucked discreetly down a side alley off a main pedestrian thoroughfare in Leeds. There is a small sign pointing the way on the street and luckily the sun was managed to find it's way there as well. Lovely old-fashioned decor inside with lots of shiny metal furnishings. Seemed to be mostly patronised by students and the after-work crowd. Great selection of ales, the Ilkley beer I had was lovely. Decent selection of food - I had Fish & Chips which were fantastic.
