Christian Hobson. Rodley Barge.

Sam Duggan. The Original Oak in Headingley.

Paul Reucroft. I’d love to visit some good beer gardens this year. Everywhere I end up going is in the shade sat next to wheelie bins looking at a main road. Any nice sun trap, nice view and peaceful beer garden suggestions would be great!

Jenny Broxholme. Calverley Arms.

Michael Thackray. Royal Park at Burley gets the sun all afternoon.

Babs Hind. Without a doubt the riverside. Suntrap that is the beer garden at the Bridge inn Kirkstall... and the best beer.

Rob Wilson. Belgrave Leeds? Any of the pubs on lower Merrion Street, as they’ve now got the full pedestrianised street - Reform Bar, Verve, Mojo?

Julie Spellman Neal. Myrtle Pub, Bay Horse at Meanwood. Both great pubs.

Morgan Watson. A meal at The Royal on Otley Chevin and then the amazing view from the top.

Julie Howell. Bengal Brasserie on Haddon Road at Kirkstall. Great food, great service, reasonably priced, small restaurant with good ambience. My fiancé took me there on our first date three years ago & we’ve been back every month since.
