user reviews of Rising Sun Inn, Leeds

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Sad to say this pub is now closed, apparently going to be turned into a restaurant, this pub in its day was a belter and was a proper local workers pub but towards the end just attracted riff raff and scumbags, a sign of the times and a very sad day.

Designed by the same architect as the Cardigan Arms several hundred yards down the road, the Rising Sun could probably best be described as a less ornate version of the former. It does still have original glass, screens and an impressive curved mahogany bar.

Like the Cardigan, it's also on CAMRA's National Inventory of Unspoilt Interiors - one of six in Leeds.

Despite the interior, I'm afraid the Rising Sun left a rather poor impression on this reviewer when I visited lateish one evening in mid-September ( having just come from the Cardigan )

The pub initially looked closed from the outside and no lights were on in the smoke room. There were only 2 other customers in the pub, sitting in semi-darkness in the main bar.

Probably tellingly, there was a large Estate Agents " To Let" hoarding on the wall outside.

There was no real ale and I had to suffer a predictably bland pint of Tetleys Smooth at 2.00p.

I'm afraid the overall impression was of a pub in its death throes.

It would be somewhat ironic if, having introduced this pub on BITE, it was to close fairly shortly.

If you're making the effort to go to the nearby Cardigan Arms, you might as well go here as well if it's still open
