Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The building and environs might be old, but the food is as fresh as it comes. I chose a starter of garlic mushrooms followed by grilled salmon with the most gorgeous creamy carrots and an abundant heap of cabbage. My companion began with a prawn cocktail, which she described as smashing, and a proper Yorkshire steak and ale pie. For dessert I was tempted by a sweet Yorkshire pudding, but was lured away by the sight of banana split, which made me feel I was at an old-time panto at the nearby Leeds City Varieties. My companion plumped, appropriately, for a large bowl of apple pie and custard, followed by the perfect cup of creamy coffee. A delightful experience all round.
