Kirkstall Bridge Inn
Time Out says
If you’re a Leeds local, you’ll have probably passed Kirkstall Bridge Inn hundreds of times and wondered whether it would be worth popping in for a pint. Unless you’re on a relaxed canalaside stroll, you’re unlikely to stumble upon the slightly residential-looking pub due to its location just out of a retail park.
The first pub to be bought by the Kirkstall Brewery, which is based on the other side of the bridge and provides most of the best and cheapest beer on the menu, the Bridge underwent refurbishment in 2013 and now does a thriving trade on most nights of the week. The décor is simple and traditional, apart from the many reclaimed beer-related paintings, photographs and mirrors that festoon the walls.
The bar staff are outstanding in their knowledge of what’s on offer, and there’s a beer garden overlooking the water making outdoor drinking idyllic in summer.
