Town Hall Tavern

17 Westgate, Leeds LS1 2RA
$$ English

The Town Hall Tavern is a historic Leeds pub, dating back to 1926. It re-launched in May 2011 becoming one of Leeds popular drinking and dining destinations but traditionally, it was used by solicitors and policemen who would sit on one side of the pub preparing for their cases, with the accused making the most of what could have been their last moments of freedom, drinking on the other side.
Situated between the courts and the Park Square Business District, with free wi-fi, Town Hall Tavern is the perfect choice to relax with fine gastro-food and drinks in Leeds, whether its a business lunch or a night of celebrations in the city.
Refurbished May 2019, the pub provides a classic interior and decor that is fresh yet comfortable, whilst retaining the building's traditional heritage and charm.

We had Sunday lunch..Gravy was too thin for me but that’s my preference..husbands beef was still really red with blood we didn’t expect it like that on a Sunday lunch maybe if it had been steak and chips we got a bit of a shock the lad took it and got it cooked longer.. overall we had a nice lunch and experience..the staff we spoke to were all happy and friendly and made us feel welcome straight away

Sunday lunch - beef - was nice - disappointed that the veg was frozen though and there was a tiny bit of mash hidden under the meat - not even a tablespoon full. The burger was delicious.

No improvement needed. Great food, great beer and very helpful staff. Miss the Specials board but hopefully that will return in good time. Also impressed with being able to contact you on messenger and getting a reminder on my mobile. Thanks for a great evening and putting us in good stead for the Opera, not to mention 10% off for pre booking and having proof of tickets. A stroke of luck seeing the poster on the toilet wall. Is it on the website? Cheers Avril

First time back to the Town Hall tavern since before lockdown just as good if not better than we remembered. We had chicken and pork Sunday roasts... plenty of meat, delicious Yorkshire puddings and as always a generous amount of gravy! Lots of choice on the menu if a roast isn't your thing.... Service friendly and efficient.

We really enjoyed our food at the town hall tavern. The Yorkshire puddings starters were a special treat and something we hadn’t had before, (we’re not from Yorkshire). All of our party ate everything and would certainly good back in the future.
