Hi all

Will be in Leeds city centre for the game Saturday. Not sure if there is a group of Mariners who will be getting together who I can join, or if not an suggestions of a good pub to watch it from?

Cheers

Live in Leeds but will be in Wrexham on Saturday. In terms of places to watch the match, you’ll want to check ahead that they’re showing it but there are a few good spots in the city centre.

The sports bar at Victoria Gate casino has some massive screens and is usually popular for big games. Then you’ve got BOX on Infirmary Street, a couple of minutes walk from the station. Nice modern place which serves Budvar tank beer.

There’s also a brand new place called Pinnacle Beer & Gin Hall. I’ve not been but heard good things about it; a fair few screens, pool tables and a decent selection of beer. If you’re looking for more of a bog standard pub the there’s also The Griffin just by the station which has loads of screens as well. Plenty of choice.

Hope you have fun!

Unfortunately on holiday in the Dales this Saturday.

I met up with MarinerWY and his brother on Monday but I think they’re planning to travel to GY for the game.

We watched it at the Brudenell Social Club - nice venue, plenty of screens so shouldn’t be a problem getting the match on one of them (I think BT Sports was their default anyway), good beer at decent prices (£3.20 a pint for the hand pull), but a bit of a hike from the city centre so might not be convenient.

As Poojah says, plenty of choice of pubs in the centre and shouldn’t be a problem getting the match on especially at 12.30. Might be worth checking in advance to find a place that’s happy to have the sound on.

One place worth a try is the Wapentake just round the corner from the Corn Exchange - they’ve got a room upstairs which often has footy on.

You’d imagine that place across the road from Belgrave will have it on.

The Brotherhood of Pursuits & Pastimes? That’s another good shout to be fair.

Is that affiliated with the Box in Headingley? Used to live in Leeds years ago and that used to be one of my footy pub/bars. Had no idea they had one in town now if so.

Also if you like a crafty beer PH, make sure you check out the North taproom near the train station. If I've got time to kill in Leeds that's my go to.

Yep, same group. Box in Headingley still there, the one in the city centre opened in about 2018 I think.

Tapped, a couple of minutes walk across from the station, is also good for craft beer. As are the two Head of Steam pubs both close by, the Thornbridge pub Banker’s Cat and and Beer Hawk just a bit further down Boar Lane.

Plenty of places to get you absolutely steaming to celebrate Town’s demolition of Wrexham*.

*Fingers crossed.

Cheers all for suggestions, much appreciated. Seems like Posh comes to town and everyone gets out of Leeds. Fair play, don’t blame you 🙂.

Also out in Headingley late doors, from about 11 onwards I would think, you any tips about places to go there for a beer with the misses (so higher class of establishment needed) would also be helpful.

Who needs google and trip advisor when you have the fishy family!!

It's mad how much Leeds city centre has changed in the last decade or so. That whole Trinity bit wasn't there when I lived there and I had no idea there was a Beer Hawk there and I've never even heard of these Head of Steam pubs, will check them out cheers for the headsup. It's generally changes for the better though as I'm always more impressed whenever I visit.
