Church Lane, Bardsey, Leeds, LS17 9DR

Located in the village of Bardsey just outside Leeds, the Bingley Arms has to be seen to be believed. Officially the oldest pub in England, it dates back to 953AD when Vikings were conquering the country. Once a rest stop for monks and priests – you can still see the priest holes where Catholic ministers hid during the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century – the pub is even rumoured to have a couple of resident ghosts.

If the Bingley Arms’ incredible history isn’t enough to persuade you to visit, the exquisite food is sure to do the trick. Made using locally sourced ingredients, each dish is expertly prepared by a dedicated team of chefs who are focused on creating hearty, traditional pub food. For those exploring the local area – the nearby stately homes, museums or the beautiful countryside – Bingley Arms offers the perfect place to pause and enjoy a light bite. There’s a variety of smaller dishes on offer served between Tuesday and Saturday, including a chicken and bacon salad, gammon, egg and chips, and halloumi, chips and mushy peas.

If you’re choosing from the main menu, you will not be disappointed. The various appetisers include freshly made soup of the day and a classic prawn cocktail, as well as homemade chicken liver parfait served with Cumberland sauce and toasted bread. Moving to the mains, diners are offered a range of grilled, fish, and vegetarian dishes. The homemade steak and ale pie served with Yorkshire pudding, mashed potato and vegetables is a firm favourite, as is the traditional fish and chips and cheese and bacon burger. However, those looking for something different can select the honey soy salmon stir fry or the delicious halloumi and courgette burger. As well as the food menu, this historic establishment boasts a splendid drinks list, with plenty of local ale, lager, wine and spirits to choose from. The first floor of the venue is also available for private hire, and the friendly team are more than happy to help you throughout the process. A tap room showing live sports completes this wonderful establishment’s offering.
