In all the years I've visited Whitelocks I've never actually eaten here. I heard good things but it was great! The food was delicious. The service was spot on and the atmosphere was cosy, charming and inviting. Everything you need for a Christmas lunch.

Beautiful old pub in the heart of Leeds, great atmosphere and service and the food was even better than expected. Definitely recommend the fish and chips and forcing a pudding in as you won't regret it!

We booked for Sunday lunch as we had heard good things. The meat and Yorkshire's did not disappoint. The veg was slightly soft for my liking but the gravy made up for that. We had parkin for dessert and it was incredible. Good range of beers on offer and the service was excellent. The interior itself is beautiful. One warning is that the stairs to the toilets are pretty steep.

Oldest pubs in Leeds! I went there over the weekend and had a vibrant and enjoyable atmosphere. It was also very busy. There is an outside space, a little street that is well organised with chairs, tables, benches. Depending on the vibe you're looking for, it may be worth going over the weekend or on a weekday if you're looking for a calmer environment. Good selection of beers. I'd definitely suggest it for a pint.

I can safely say this is the best pub in Leeds. Incredibly friendly staff, great beers served with expertise, and the food is not half bad. It’s a great atmosphere whether you’re looking for a place to eat or just nipping in for a pint.
