JD Wetherspoon faced a long battle with Leeds City Council in its discussions to open the pub, which is in an old doctors surgery.

The firm won an appeal in 2018 after councillors failed to make a decision about whether to approve the proposal.

The pub will have a beer garden with capacity for up to 70 drinkers.
