Out for a meal with family. Food was fine as was the service. Would I go there again? Probably not. More a meeting place for drinks after work rather than the serving of food.

I went here for dinner while staying in Leeds on business. It seemed like it was a fairly quiet night for them and I got good service from the staff, allowing me to try beers before ordering. The beer was great quality - you could tell they know how to handle real ale, and the steak pie with veg and... More

I regularly meet other colleagues here (for a meeting) and most of us have food. I really like the atmosphere and the lovely staff. The food is good value and wholesome. We are never made to feel a nuisance, during what can be long meetings.

Veritas lures you in with a good look...a classic pub environment - stripped wood floors, vintage wall art adverts and plenty of old-style tables and chairs. The beer and lager on offer is good and varied. The food menu is enticing - but that is where the positives sadly fell away. Classic British dishes promise much - but 3 visits... More

This is the 3rd time I've been here with the same friends and we've always been delighted with the food. Staff are always friendly too. Unfortunately on this visit the food was disappointing. My friends who are vegan ordered the teriyaki tofu I think it was. It was basically like rice in gravy with unflavoured blocks of tofu and pickled... More

I have not eaten here but the ale is excellent! I found this pub in the "Good Beer Guide" and the beer that caught my eye apart from Timothy Taylor Landlord was Okells! I have not had that since 1984 in the Isle of Man so it was great to reacquaint myself with it :-) They had other beers sourced... More

We visited Veritas on a Saturday evening and whilst I couldn't fault the ambiance and the quality of ales on offer and the service at the bar there was some things that really let it down. The main issue was the menu, whilst on the face of it the food on offer looked amazing there was so many things not... More

Four of us stopped here for a late Sunday lunch on a wet day in Leeds. Very good service and excellent food, accomodating both vegetarian and meat eaters. Good wines and beers too. Would definately go back here to eat, and recommend to others.
