6 Pubs to visit on your Stag Night Leeds

There’s nothing worse than getting all pumped then no-where to go. Perhaps more accurately, not knowing where to go. You’ve been looking forward to this for months. You feel like it’s been practically a century since you and the lads got together for a proper night out. And the weekend is finally here! You’re on a stag night in Leeds, and in desperate need of some pointers when it comes to getting a proper pint in this Yorkshire city. Fear not! We’ve got it covered, with 6 of the best pubs to visit whilst you’re ‘up north’. 

North Bar

Some say the first craft bar in Britain, North Bar, named as Observer Food Monthly’s ‘Best Place to Drink in Britain Award’. Back in 1997 when Kronenbourg was the most exotic imported beer bars could get hold of – North Bar was a pioneer in its trade. Paving the way for craft beer bars across Leeds and of course the country. Bright, arty and a down right friendly place to be. 


Taking inspiration from America, this casual brew pub boasts 27 draft beers and over 100 bottled beers from around the globe. It already sounds pretty awesome, but to top it off Tapped serves up delicious home-made pizzas by their in house chef Big Dan. There’s a rather mysterious ‘Pizza Challenge’ too which sounds right up our street! 


Their website, as with their venue greets you with ‘Beer, beer and more beer!’ which is a pretty good place to start we reckon. Arcadia Ale House has 8 cask brews as well as a pretty impressive bottle collection too. Their Tavern manager Graeme is a self-confessed ‘beer expert’ so you can always ask for suggestions or even just a chat about pints! We recommend the third pint tasting paddles, so you get a variety of brews to taste alongside their delicious gourmet bar snacks. 

The Hop

The Hop is a couple of live venues, where you can appreciate both fantastic music and fantastic beer. With one housed in the famous Dark Arches of Leeds and the other within Granary Wharf. Award winning ales and ciders, as well as bottled beers from all over the world. You’ll want to sample the produce from the Pie Hole too – mouth-watering and multi award winning pies in 7 flavours as well as their amazing pork pies too! 


Not many pubs can put their birthdate at 1715. The oldest public house in Leeds, Whitelock’s - its character retained with a new lease of life – passion about real ale, food and excellent service. Specialising in local ales, mainly from Yorkshire itself. When in Leeds, drink Leeds! Such history this pub has, originally The Turks Head it was once described as ‘the very heart of Leeds’. 


From the old to the relatively new, Brewdog is already a familiar favourite but youngster in the independent craft beer trade. Said to have ‘released the city from the shackles of the mainstream’ with its 5 headlining brews at the very heart of it. Now 23 brews later, White Cloth Hall is home to Brewdog encompassing the personality of both the craft beer revolution and Leeds itself.
