Avoid at all costs. Apparently part of the Otley run. Not allowed in if part of the Otley run. Very aggressive staff member on the door. Should not be allowed to be classed as part of what is a great day.More

This is a really nice little pub, very welcoming with a decent range of beers. We visited in a large group (120 people) and we had no problems getting drinks. Worth a visit.

Great pub full of friendly down to earth people. Has different things going on all the time and is one of the few pubs in Leeds with a pool table.

This has to be the best pub in the world. Always made welcome and the staff always chat and make you feel welcome. You need to give it a go and I bet you anything that you call back. BRILLIANT.

Played this venue in February and love every minute of it, excluding the fire exit when we loses in, where the holes where big enough to fall in. Good drink, great prices, awesome sound, good people.

The Fenton is a seriously cool place for live music fans. The pub itself can get a bit crowded, but it's worth it. Reasonably priced drinks, an awesome Beer Garden, and an amazing live music venue upstairs. Well recommended.

One of the last few decent pubs in Leeds, a retreat for locals, academics and students from the idiocy of contemporary culture. The people who run the Fenton are amazing hosts, friendly and very genuine. A great range of local beers at affordable prices.
