LB Buy The Garden Gate


*We've known it was on the cards for a while, but after months of talk, Leeds Brewery have finally bought The Garden Gate in Hunslet - a match made in heaven. Let's hope they can get some customers back in the place. More to follow. Huzzah!

Hadn't seen anything about these guys before, but a quick look at their website makes me drool!

Whoah! Big news, I'm delighted they went through with it.

Velky - Yeah, they've been around a few years and are near-on ubiquitous in Leeds now. Solid, well-balanced beers. If you get a chance, give them a try. Zak - I know, what a reprieve, eh?

Don't know the pub in question (obviously...) but I've seen a couple of pretty desolate pubs in London totally turned round when they started flogging decent beer. It doesn't seem to be rocket science to me...

Bailey - needless to say, I totally agree. Put it on the bar and they will come, so to speak. We'll be keeping an eye on this development, anyway.
