Whitelocks Ale House
If you turn down a little alleyway right next to the hugely commercialized Trinity Shopping Centre, or just off Briggate Street, you will find yourself in the beer garden of the city’s oldest pub. First opened in 1715 as The Turks Head, it was renamed Whitelocks when it was taken over by the Whitelock family in the 1880’s. Nothing about this pub reflects its 21st century surroundings; the interior is full of dark woods and stained glass and the space is small and cosy, making it the perfect escape from the overcrowded shopping centre. The pub offers a large selection of local ales, all reasonably priced, and a quintessential pub grub menu if you’re after a bite to eat. Its history alone makes it a must-visit locale.
