There is nothing like a historic boozer, and in Yorkshire, we have some of the oldest pubs in the UK. One that has even topped TripAdvisors list of the best pubs in Leeds is The Scarborough Hotel, which sits next to the train station.
The historic building dates back to 1765 when it was a medieval manor house before being taken over by Henry Scarborough in 1826 when it was named Kings Arms.
In the late 1890s, Fred Wood established The Scarbrough Hotel Pub as it is known today and was nicknamed The Taps due to its taproom where people would enjoy tasting sessions.
The place is steeped in history and full of unique characteristics. So it’s no surprise that it’s topping the list of best boozers in Leeds, and with a range of bank holidays comings up in May, it’s a good one to add to the list.
The outside of the building with its old-fashioned tiled exterior screams heritage and shows that 150 years of history sits inside the classic pub.

Located just a short walk from the train station, the traditional pub with its unique character is full of great ales, quality food, and a wide range of single-malt whiskeys.
Nowadays the pub serves up to ten real ales and serves a menu of the best of British with a few touches of continental flair. And is known for being flooded with a sea of white as Leeds United supporters head in before the home games.
Food-wise, The Scarborough Hotel in Leeds city centre serves delicious pies which range from classic game suet pudding, chicken, and portobello mushroom to veggie options of sweet potato and goat’s cheese.
They also serve classic pub dishes like ham, eggs and chips, fish & chips and sausage & mash all with that gastropub twists on them.
