Quiet January evening and we arrived along with 3 other tables of 3-4 and service was brilliant, one bar tender to give table service and sit each of us individually. Great cocktails, wonderful playlist and great decor. Highly recommend.

Went after eating at Stockdales. Lovely place to have a drink. Brilliant staff, always on hand, and the drinks menu was ace. Cocktails are reasonably priced and both me and my partner loved them. Would recommend to anyone in the Leeds area.

You will find this lovely place just round the corner from the busy bar streets. Great service - we were given a free little drink and water topped up throughout our stay without even asking. Nice chilled music and friendly staff. A lot better than...More

This is a wonderful bar with so many things going for it. Excellent, knowledgeable staff, nice atmosphere, good service and it's hidden away so it is generally idiot free. There is only one thing that stops me giving this bar 5/5 and that is to...More
