Don't know what it was before that.
Thanks dogduke for that information :).

Further research shows, that by coincidence, there was a Horse and Jockey Pub on Bridge Road, Holbeck, at the junction of Water Lane/Holbeck Lane. The pub is shown on the old map of 1891.

Thanks for that link Ian :).

The listing on pages 194-196 of the Inns, Taverns, etc in the Borough of Leeds (pages 197-199 of the index) is fascinating. A pub crawl in those days would have needed very little in the way of walking around, so saving time for even more drinks! ;)

I have just stumbled across this post as I was googling the horse and jockey.
My grandad lived in kirkstall/Bramley most of his life and told me many times that the bridge Inn used to be called the horse and jockey.
