Best Sports Pubs in Leeds

Though Leeds may not have a Premier League team like they did in the nineties (a golden age devoid of Joe Hart's anti-dandruff commercials), it can boast the Leeds Rhinos (many-time Super League champions) and of course Headlingly cricket ground. All of this you may know, but you may not know where the best sports bars and pubs are in Leeds that are showing all this action. That's where we come in. If you're not content with just searching for the nearest pub to you showing live sport on theĀ sports barsĀ page, then check out our list below for our compilation of the best sports pubs in Leeds. We've come up with three beauties so far and we will of course be adding to the list as we go along.

Leeds

Leeds is a city with a serious passion for sport. Whether it's the mighty Leeds United, Super League's perennial champions The Rhino's or Geoffrey Boycott's beloved Yorkshire Cricket Club you want to see in action, there are dozens of fantastic pubs and bars to catch them at, from trendy wine bars on Call Lane to cosy locals out in Otley. Use MatchPint to find the nearest pubs showing the action as well as the one most suited to you by checking out how many screens they have, whether they are a BT Sport bar and even whether they will have the commentary on or not. Here's some of our current favourites from the city, but give us a shout on info@matchpint.co.uk if you think there are any sports bars or pubs that deserve to be added to the list.

The Gateway Bar & Grill

The Gateway Bar & Grill

#RelaxedAtmosphere  #WideDrinkSelection  #Pizza 
Proper sports bar down by the canal in central Leeds. Expect more screens than you'd ever need and suitably epic burgers and pizzas on the menu.
Black Prince

Black Prince

#BigGamesMatter  #ClassicPubFood  #HighStreet 
You'll find the Black Prince mere metres from the train station. Once inside this grand old building houses a buzzing bar set over two floors that's a sports fan's dream. Always worth a visit whenever any of the Leeds teams are on the box, the Black Prince packs a great game day atmosphere.
Nation of Shop Keepers

Nation of Shop Keepers

#BigGamesMatter  #WideDrinkSelection  #MajorEvents 
Cool city centre hang out that boasts stunning grub and some exceptional craft beer on tap. Whilst they only have terrestrial, if you're after a chilled spot to catch the FA Cup, Six Nations or Women's World Cup you could do much worse.
Original Oak

Original Oak

#SportsBar  #MajorEvents  #BigGamesMatter 
Arguably the finest sports pub on the Otley Road, the Oak combines great pub grub with reasonable pints and heaps of screens to catch all the live action on. What really stands it apart, however, is their glorious beer garden complete with huge outdoor screen. The perfect place to while away a sunny afternoon.
The Box

The Box

#StadiumLikeAtmosphere  #MajorEvents  #SportsBar 
Another belting sports bar in student heartland Headingly. Pool, shed loads of screens and a sun-kissed roof terrace make this a great choice whether rain or shine. Always busy on any weekend, it's the atmosphere's second to none when the Rhinos are playing on TV.
Headingley Taps

Headingley Taps

#BigGamesMatter  #MajorEvents  #Traditional 
Tucked away next to the city's iconic cricket stadium, the Taps is a student favourite offering great value drinks. Obviously fills out when there's rugby or cricket on but also a cracking spot to catch any big football game.
