About the Pub

Described by John Betjeman as "the very heart of Leeds". Whitelock’s dates from 1715 and occupies a long narrow yard. The interior is unchanged from 1895 and has been identified by CAMRA as having a nationally important historic pub interior. The pub is a feast of mirrors, woodwork, stained glass and a fine faience bar. A varied beer selection is offered from local and national breweries. Their sister bar, The Turks Head is in the same building just down the yard and offers two real ales on handpump and a number of other draught beers.
