What a sad sight. Hope they don't pull it down.

Only a matter of time i suppose,which will be next to catch fire,The Britannia in Holbeck??I think we are,without doubt,witnessing the death knell of these kinds of pubs.There seems to be no levelling out i the rate of closures of the out of town pubs at all.

So, what is the first "roadside pub", on the left, coming out of Leeds, after City Square?(sorry, I know, it's been done before)

Enigma Bar on New Road Side in Horsforth. There's also a bar in the rugby club next to Kirkstall Abbey.

I can remember this one being asked before, and the answer is quite surprising. It's the Yorkshire Rose in Guiseley.How many pubs were there historically? I assume a lot more between town and Kirkstall, but were there many if any between Kirkstall and Horsforth and Horsforth and Guiseley?

I had forgotten about the Yorkshire Rose. I can't think of any other pubs that have been there in my lifetime.
