Good times in the city on a boat
"Just up there, mate. On the right. Looks like a boat."

This is the response received by many newcomers to Leeds upon asking a passerby for help in finding Dry Dock. They ain't wrong; this place really does resemble a boat.

Situated near Leeds Metropolitan University, Dry Dock is major hit with students in the area. With an outside that resembles the result of a particularly powerful tsunami at Hornsea, the novelty value of drinking on a boat on a hill in West Yorkshire would be enough for most people, but Dry Dock delivers across the board.

Reasonably priced drinks and food and a buoyant, friendly atmosphere that matures into a lively party vibe on a weekend make this pub stand out from the herd of Leeds' student bars and ensure that it can boast more strings to its bow than just a quirky setting.

Promotions like Cocktail Night – with deliciously alcoholic concoctions costing only £5 for two – and Quids – selected drinks for… well… a quid – help make the prices even more reasonable on certain nights.

The Dry Dock pub also boasts a Sky Sports license, and is the ideal venue for spending a hungover afternoon watching Super Sunday with some mates and some good grub. Its location on the doorstep of Leeds Metropolitan University ensures that there's always a mix of sports fans from all over the country on hand to provide a good atmosphere for a neutral.

If you're in search of somewhere to watch your team take on the mighty Leeds and don't fancy being berated by the Elland Road faithful, this is your place.
