West Leeds pubs up for award


Several pubs in West Leeds are amongst the nominations for the 2016 Yorkshire Evening Post Pub of the Year, writes Jill Buckley.

Those nominated in the area include The Abbey Inn, Bramley, The Fleece at Farsley and The Bridge in Kirkstall.

Martin Lockett, manager of the Abbey Inn, which only last month won Leeds CAMRA’s Pub of the Month award and was last year voted the CAMRA Community Pub of the Year, said:

“We are delighted to be nominated again for the Yorkshire Evening Post pub of the year. It is great for the staff to get recognition from the people of our local area and Leeds for their hard work and efforts.”

Local man John Brooks founded a facebook page Real Ale Pubs in Yorkshire last year and it has proved to be a very useful platform for chat and promotion.

We are blessed to have such a great choice of pubs and real ale in West Leeds. You don’t have to go very far to get excellent ale with excellent service
