On a visit to the Royal Armouries in Leeds, we took a wander along the canal to find somewhere for a spot of lunch. After finding a bridge to cross to the trendy "Calls", we found a suitable looking place for a pint and some stew.
Sophie tried the rather floral Elizabeth Rose - a beer for a lady if ever I tasted one, while Gray and I had a more nutty brew. They were both good and although this place seems to be a Theakston's pub ,they have guest ales from various breweries it seems.
The beef contained more vegetables and variety while the sausage was tasty and the jus (or I believe up here they call it gravy) was rich and moreish. The hunk of bread that came with each was hearty for soaking up the sauce and we were all satisfied (in fact, stuffed and on the verge of food-coma) by the time we finished.
There were a few little things that could be improved, lipstick on a pint pot, fake nails on our seat and the absence of Dave's Big Fish Stew or the mulled cider, both of which sounded delicious. The cider was being warmed up when we got there but took an hour.
Despite these things, we enjoyed our lunch and I think we managed to find a good spot.
