Kirkstall Bridge Inn is my most visited eatery/pub in Leeds. It’s an independent venue with really cheery staff, splendid home cooked grub and walls clad in nostalgia. It’s won numerous awards and when you go along you will see why. It’s pet friendly, children welcome too. They do a great Sunday lunch and also offer a vegetarian menu.
I normally have the fish and chips. The food is presented in an artisan way. The coffee is fantastic and each time I visit I get chatting to very friendly locals. It’s one of the places you can go to on your own and find others doing the same. There’s a load of locally brewed ales too. They try to keep the theme of things community based. If every open house was just like this, I’d never eat at home.
I could write more but the pictures say it all. I’ve no idea who the men are in the group photo but they were a great bunch and gave me permission to use them with this feature.
Finally, there’s a lovely secure garden at the back that also has ample seating – overlooking the River Aire with a great bridge for photo enthusiasts. Plenty of snapping opportunities in this little haven. Parking is fine. Although Kirkstall Bridge Inn is on a very busy road with little frontage, once in you should be fine to park. If that fails, there’s also loads of parking at the neighbouring Kirkstall Bridge shopping park. Let us know you get on!
