LEEDS city centre is packed full of bars and clubs but when it comes to pubs, sadly it’s slim pickings.

There are a few loved names, such as Whitelock’s and The Adelphi, but trendy bars far outnumber cosy drinking dens.

However a new name has just been added to the list.

The Lamb and Flag recently opened on Church Row and it’s a welcome addition to the city.

Nestled just next to Leeds Minster, it’s fair to say the Lamb and Flag is a rare gem.

Owned by Leeds Brewery (the company behind The White Swan, Midnight Bell, Brewery Tap and Crowd of Favours) the pub takes over a 19th century, Grade-II listed building.

After pain-staking restoration, the building, which has remained empty for decades, has been transformed into a great new pub.

The courtyard area offers impressive views of Leeds Minster and the pub is set across two floors, stocking Leeds Brewery beers (of course) and serving traditional pub classics such as fish and chips, burgers and steak sandwiches.

It’s just the thing that could help bring more punters to this side of town.
