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 largely unchanged since 1895 and is a feast of mirrors, polished metal and woodwork, stained glass, iron pillars, and faience tiling. On the long, copper-topped bar is a well chosen mixture of classic local beers and interesting ales from quality brewers further afield. The outside yard is shared with the Turk's Head bar and has over twenty tables most of which are covered and have heaters. Drinking at the bar is not allowed. Card payment only.
