City centre brew pub that attracts a mixed clientele with its top-notch gig listings, enticing menu and good selection of ales.
Old man boozers will always make the average twentysomething or student feel uneasy, but when they have gig listings as strong as the Fox & Newt’s it is hard to stay away. Located near the university and within spitting distance of one of the city’s largest blocks of student accommodation, Fox & Newt hosts an eclectic clientele, from gig-going musos and local regulars to adventurous students, and perennial bottle-gazing drunkards.
Leeds’ last remaining City Centre Brew-Pub, Fox & Newt now plays host to Burley Street Brewhouse, and a recent conversion by the new owners has seen the unused upper floor transformed into a brand new fully equipped live music and comedy venue.
Like its sister pub, The Pack Horse, The Fox & Newt boasts a popular food menu, a variety of draught products and a plentiful selection of intriguing bottles and spirits – not to mention the eight real-ale hand pull pumps that always stock a selection of straight-from-the-brewery beers alongside an array of seasonal guest ales.
