With heavy rain forecast over the next week, it's fortunate timing that bars, pubs and restaurants can reopen indoors tomorrow. Here are 10 of the cosiest pubs in Leeds to shelter from the storm:
Leeds' oldest pub is preparing to welcome customers back inside the boozer for the first time in more than six months. Cosy up with a pint of Yorkshire-brewed ale while enjoying the traditional decor. It's tucked away on Turk's Head Yard, off Briggate, so perfect for shoppers to dash into when it pours.

2. Kirkstall Bridge Inn
Kirkstall Brewery's riverside pub is spread over two floors. Its cosy corners and fireplaces make it the perfect place to shelter from the rain. It opens on Monday, with booking recommended.
3. Myrtle Tavern
This traditional Meanwood boozer is voted the best pub for food in Leeds on Tripadvisor. It will reopen its indoor seating on Monday, serving the popular roast dinners and homemade desserts.
4. The Bingley Arms
Located in the picturesque village of Bardsey, between Leeds and Wetherby, this boozer is hundreds of years old and has preserved a remarkable amount of its history, including several medieval artifacts. Its cosy decor is the perfect place to enjoy a pint after a long walk.
