Much-loved student pub, where you’ll find live bands and stodgy food, while the more studious can take advantage of free wifi and a free printing service

A key calling point on the legendary ‘Otley Run’ bar crawl route, The Library on the corner of Woodhouse Moor has been a favourite student haunt for years, combining the tried-and-tested formula of cheap drinks, lots of seating, occasional bands and the quintessential jukebox for loading up ‘90s throwback tunes. The Victorian boozer was part of the grungy Scream pub chain for years, but it’s recently had a light refurbishment to give it a more upmarket feel without losing any of its original appeal. There’s plenty of food to try out, which promises to remedy all manner of ills, from hangovers to long-haul dissertation slogs, with the standard burgers, chips and hot dogs substantial enough to slay the sudden carb cravings of varsity life. 

It’s rare to see anyone who isn’t a student in the pub during the day, but at night local bands and comedians descend. The newly branded bar caters to every facet of the student lifestyle, with free wifi, a free printing service and laptop chargers aplenty. Those who are likely to visit often (and that’s pretty much everyone not doing a medicine degree) may as well sign up for a Library card as soon as university offers have been accepted so there’s no time wasted when it comes to freshers’ week.
