“Great Bar, check it out!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

OYC is one of my favourite bars in Leeds, the atmosphere is really chilled and the staff are all really friendly. It's a great place to come and do a bit of work during the day but also meet friends in the evening for a catch up, they also play decent music, hold great events and make great stew!

“Friendly and funky”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

I was so pleasantly surprised when I first went to Outlaw’s. The bar staff were friendly and efficient and the place was just really warm and welcoming. They offer a range of things to suit different people ranging from film nights to family fun days. Got to say the music is fantastic, a bit of the beaten track but it’s so nice to hear something different from the main stream. I will defo be going back and recommending it to my friends to come down with or without the kids.

“Amazing! Cool and friendly”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

I often go to OYC and the atmosphere is lovely, child friendly, great staff, interesting menu and entertainment in the form of board games and regular music events.

Their events are forward thinking and something Leeds has needed for a long time. There are regular children's went in Sundays that have creative aspect and film events which are so much needed in town.

I'd recommend Outlaws to mates for a chilled pint, an after work drink or families in the day.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Visited here today for a bit if lunch and a drink. Looked through the menu and went up to the bar to order, but along with another customer stood waiting for service from the barman who was far too deep in conversation with a friend to even bother glancing in my direction. I stood waiting for a good 5 mins and still hadn't been acknowledged, nor had the lady who had been there longer than me holding her empty wine glass. I know places like this enjoy being pretentious but the attitude was more "we don't need your custom". Can't comment on the food as I never got to order it but won't be back to try it.
