Have your say

The creme de la creme of Leeds pubs and bars have made it into the national Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide 2016.

Just 30 Leeds spots were available in the national guide of 4,500 of the best real ale pubs in the UK, which was launched at a special release ceremony at the Lamb and Flag pub in Leeds on Thursday.

The Leeds branch of CAMRA selected the finest 30 city establishments for the guide, billed as the “perfect package for pub-goers everywhere”.

Among the Leeds pub to secure a spot in the book are the Duck & Drake, in Kirkgate, and Tapped Leeds, in Boar Lane.

All Leeds pubs who won a place in the book have been issued special membership packs by the city’s branch of CAMRA.

A spokesman for Leeds CAMRA said: “With just 30 spaces available for our branch area, it’s only the very best that make it into the book.”
