The spring sunshine is here (finally!) and we’re absolutely loving it. Leeds is a beautiful city at the best of times but something about seeing it shining in the sun makes it even better.

To celebrate this rarity, we’ve chosen 7 places with beer gardens for you to enjoy a nice cold one. Chin, chin!

Waterlane Boathouse

There’s no denying that there is nothing prettier to look at than the canal glistening in the sun, accompany that with alcohol and good food and you have Waterlane Boathouse. Their outdoor space is truly one of the best in Leeds and is worth a little trip to see. Throw in their amazing drinks menu and one of their wood-fired oven pizzas and you’re sorted.

Roland’s

If you’ve ever walked down Call Lane and longed for a beer garden, the chances are you’re not looking properly. Roland’s is the only bar on Call Lane to have it’s own beer garden and it’s pretty impressive. The hidden gem is a perfect place to spend your sunny days, especially with Roland’s extensive drinks menu consisting of local, national and international cask, draught and bottled beers & ciders, proper wines, spirits and cocktails.

Northern Monk

If you want to venture out a little to a place that does amazingly brewed beer and has loads of place for you to sit, then Northern Monk in Holbeck might just be the place for you. The beer garden is full of greenery, rustic benches and most importantly: catches a lot of sun. The surroundings of historic mills, good people and good beer is a winner on a Spring day.

Brewery Tap

The Brewery Tap is a microbrew pub which is home to great beer and better yet: a great beer garden. Their beer garden is a little terrace complete with fairy lights that overlooks the train station, making it a perfect place to watch the world go by. Their terrace is a little sun trap so when it’s hot – it’s hot!

Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen

Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen is a winner all year round, but when it’s actually warm enough to head up to the snug bar – that’s where the magic happens! You find yourself surrounded by deck chairs, fairy lights and lots of other people… but it feels like nobody is a stranger there. With an amazing drinks selection, fresh Pimms and good food from Dough Boys and Patty Smiths – where else would you want to go?

  • Sheaf St Cafeteria

Sheaf St Cafeteria, located in Duke Studios, is already a hidden gem in itself – with amazing food and drinks for you to enjoy. But their beer garden is a hidden gem inside a hidden gem. You’ll find the cosy spot surrounded by yellow bunting like their trademark exterior and is a genuinely lovely place to sit. Definitely one not to be missed!

Nation of Shopkeepers already has loads going on, with weekly pub quizzes to live music – there’s something for everybody to enjoy. Their beer garden is only a plus to what they already do, by adding a quirky other dimension to the inside. The perfect place to chill and drink some alcoholic beverages.
