Brand-new TVs have been installed to ensure viewing any sporting event is a great experience at The Merchant.

Guests can watch all the action live, pint in hand, either at the main bar or in one of the bookable booths with individual screens that have been installed as part of the refurb.

For those wanting to be in on the action, customers can enjoy the new pool tables and darts boards.

Matt Lowe, general manager of The Merchant, said: “This exciting investment has totally transformed the look and feel of our pub, and we are excited to unveil it to the people of Leeds.

"Whether it’s a daytime pint to watch the sport or a Christmas dinner with friends, The Merchant will be a warm and welcoming pub that the whole community can enjoy.”
