Nearly at the end of the Big Leeds Bank Holiday Night Out now, as we come to our last Beer Guide pub of the night (F).
The Duck & Drake is what we call a Proper Pub, playing proper music for people who should be tucked up in bed by 9pm on a Sunday. And it’s got a helpful fence so you don’t fall into the road when you stagger out the pub at chucking-out time.
Sadly the music, probably an AC/DC covers band, had just finished. So my entertainment was in deciding between Wales (with hunting print) and Yorkshire. I chose wrong; Brains is best drunk in the Goat Major.
Great boisterous pub though, even if our team was flagging by now.
Still, when you’re flagging, only Brew Dog will do. Doesn’t it look quaint ?
I know how much you enjoy seeing BrewDog price lists.
More £5 a pint live beer, though the 5AM Saint was by far the most carbonated beer of the day.
You won’t get me slagging off the Dog, even though their album choices are a bit old hat.
Anyway, that was that, bar a rather good curry near Bundobust that Dick and Dave will recall the name of.
In the morning, Leeds looked fantastic.
My late morning coffee and poached eggs on a crumpet came from Grub & Grog, very new Leeds with its vegetable and craft beer fixations. Great crumpet though.
Ten points for naming the dead pub at the top.
