I called in on a Friday afternoon, the place was busy but not crowded. There was nobody waiting to be served but the barman ignored me and carried on chatting with a group of inibriated idiots at the bar. I was just about to leave...More

Great little place on New Briggate, good for craft beers. Only challenge is getting a seat, as the place really is corridor-like.

The beer selection in North Bar is always superb, but you do pay for it. The atmosphere seems to be either totally dead or packed to the rafters, I don't think I've ever seen it just seem steady. The staff can be somewhat surly too.

Good late pint just lacks a bit of atmosphere and staff interaction but is a Wednesday night so will see how improves over the weekend . Date visited:04/04/94

Probably the first craft beer bar in Britain. A cosy gem serving a massively varied selection of quality drinks, plus teas, coffees, and light bites to eat. One of the original pioneers of the Leeds bar boom, North has an unparalleled beer selection, served brilliantly by friendly and informative staff. Winner of the Observer Food Monthly's 'Best Place to Drink in Britain award. North is Leeds' coolest haunt for lovers of great drinks, music and art.
