Town Hall Tavern

A quiet spot for a pint (it sells few other forms of alcohol) the Town Hall Tavern attracts a rather random mix of customers. It is one of the few places in Leeds' business district that offers a traditional pub feel, even if it is reminiscent of a social club or golf club bar. This gastropub gets a large portion of its menu from local Yorkshire sources, so you can ensure that you are getting the freshest food possible.

Whitelock's Ale House

If you like your pubs on the traditional side, you'll love Whitelock's. Dating from the 1700s, this small and cozy pub is ideal for a quiet drink. The gleaming brass fixtures and fittings lend a quaint charm that is increasingly rare in city center pubs. This, and the tempting selection of hand-pumped ale—including John Smith, Ruddles and Theakston Old Peculiar— has helped to make Whitelock's a firm favorite with locals and tourists alike. If you're hungry, try the excellent food. The menu includes Whitelock's seafood pie and beefsteak pie.

6 Turks Head Yard, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS1 6HB

This British eatery with a seasonal focus finds itself on the fifth floor of the Trinity Leeds shopping center. Crafthouse is most well-known for its phenomenal location that offers amazing city views from within the restaurant as well as the adjacent sun-soaked terrace. Equipped with a sleek and contemporary design, this establishment also serves excellent dishes along with well-matched wines from their impressive list. A set menu for an early, pre-theater dinner features as well. Access this stellar place from the lift on Boar Lane or from within the Trinity Leeds shopping center.

The Reliance

Sitting on the northern verges of Leeds city center, The Reliance combines a continental cafe-bar vibe with more traditional English hostelry fare. Lively but never raucous (possibly due to its distance from the city’s throbbing epicenter), this is a place to meet, chat, eat, and drink in a relaxed binge-free environment. Excellent food is served in the close-knit back room, while a selection of beers, both exotic and domestic, can be enjoyed at the bar. Those who like dress codes, doormen, banging music and underage drinkers might find The Reliance a little dull, but those who are happy to live without such things should enjoy.

Betty's Tearoom

Betty's Tea Rooms are a Yorkshire institution, but the one in Harrogate, with its distinctive wraparound wrought iron canopy, has been in business since 1919. As a sure sign of its enduring popularity, at almost any time of day, there's a line of people going out the door. Once inside, you can choose from exquisite cakes or a full meal. There's also the more continental Montpellier Café Bar, which is still part of Betty's, but a little more casual. Overall, this place is a vital part of the Harrogate experience.
