I love this pub. Its more or less unchanged since the first time I went in as a callow youth.

Last night they had a fine selection of cask ales on, notably Copper Dragons' (Skipton Brewery) 'Golden Pippin' - If you get the chance to sample it I would recommend it.

Might give it a go again Leb, I haven't bothered with it for a bit, cos' the last couple of manager's didn't seem that bothered about the pub, and it was reflected in a poor choice of beers. I can only handle going in, when it's sunny, and you can get perched outside, as inside, although charming, is just too small for me, always feel like I'm sat on top of t'folk. I shall report back with my new findings.

Ahhh, noticed the Whitelock visit in the Leeds section. What Dock said ^^

Time was when Mrs Doors used to entice me with a promise i could go in Whitelocks if i went shopping with her and wait there for the last hour. Nowadays its more likely to be The Wrens or Foleys maybe even the North Bar (lest you think i only drink in old mans pubs   )

Will give it another go on the strength of this. Stinks High Heaven though in there of Sunday Dinners past their best and the staff seem well trained in treating you with contempt.

Don't think so.

Used to enjoy a pint of Youngers Number 3 in here but I don't think they do it anymore.I drop in for a swift one when I'm in Leeds and have the time, last time they had Old Peculiar on.

Youngers No 3 disappeared a long time ago, it was a nice drop though.

I remember drinking it in Whitelocks after going to Old Trafford for the away leg of our league cup semi final in 1990, me and my mate had stood in their 'Family' paddock but it was a pretty hostile atmospere in there, and not many families about.

When we got back to Leeds we needed a few jars to settle the nerves. It had started snowing, I should have gone home at about eight oclock but decided that I'd be better with a few pints more No.3 when I emerged from Whitelocks at 10.30 half pissed there was about a foot of snow and literally nothing was running, I decided to walk the 9 miles home to Garforth , which is mainly uphill by the way, meanwhile the snow just kept falling, it was surreal walking through Leeds suburbs with a blanket of snow and no-one about, not a single car passed me the whole time and by the time I got to  Swilly Common it was hard to tell where the road was in relation to the fields, if the street lights hadn't been there I wouldn't have been able to. - finally got home at 5 in the morning.
Thats what no.3 did for yer.

Consider the circumstances Dock, a foot of snow, 10 pints of number three, a long day , an uphill walk and a stop off at Caesars Pizza on Halton dial, definitely one step forward and two steps back.

What are you Dock, an Ethiopian distance fell runner in your spare time?

Leb did well, I'd have got back about a day later in those conditions

Ex-Postman me Codge, I eat miles like a lion eats gazelles (African, not Adidas wiseguy).

Although, I think we do have to allow Leb extra time for being a bit fucked, and balancing a pizza box in one hand, a slice in the other, and keeping upright on snow covered pavements.

Popped in yesterday, just to show Mrs. Dock one of Leeds most famous pubs. Large glass of Dry White and a pint of Leeds Best for your narrator. How much? I'll tell you how much, £7.05. Won't be going back.

Although not lager a boy, was in Aire Bar down The Calls, the draught Peroni was just the job on a hot day.

A pub i know of in Hampton sold wine at £5.20 a glass. We all knew that was too much.

£7.05 is fucking you up the arse, over the bar with no lube.

Hope you're not too traumatised Codge.

Just a wee note on beer prices for the Leeds Reggies. I got a round in the swish snazzy PIN bar down Dock Street on Friday, and it was cheaper than The Scarborough, and the ale was spot on. (sse PIN thread for ale info). Not a massive price diff, but you always think bars like PIN are going to be more expensive.

Not a kept man as such, but we are a team. I just watch my money through the week, so I can afford a pint on a weekend.
