The pub is one of several Milton Pub and Taverns-branded sites across the country that have shut in recent weeks due to changing trading conditions and a review of the portfolio.

Current owners Aprirose took over more than 70 former Mitchells and Butlers pubs in 2017, including four others in Leeds - the Victoria Hotel and Shenanigans in the city centre, Vesper Gate in Kirkstall and The True Briton in Meanwood.

“The pubs in Leeds will continue to trade as going concerns, with the exception of the Barley Mow. Regrettably, after we were unable to find a buyer for the business, it has closed. It is unfortunate for the loyal, dedicated staff and customers but we believe that it still offers a good opportunity for the right investor and is up for sale.”
