The pub looks a bit like a shop from the outside and that feeling goes right through to the room past the bar which is a delicatessen during the day.
Now I always like to try different ales so I plumped for the Abbeydale Daily Bread for my first pint.which turned out to be a rather bland, and in my opinion, characterless beer.
Second up was a nice little blonde from Ilkey - Mary Jane which was on splendid form.
We had come to Veritas for something to eat and if I am honest the overall feel of the place is that of a cafe. This should not come as a surprise as all the MTT pubs that we have visited are slightly unusual. The food is good simple pub fayre served in decent portions at very reasonable prices.
I had slab of chicken and wild mushroom pie but the game pie and the veggie dish both looked good.
A special mention for the staff who were working last night. They were all from the PIAF school (Polite, Interested, Articulate & Friendly) They certainly made a big contribution to the nice atmosphere and deserve our thanks.
At a time when pubs in leeds are closing down every week Market Town Taverns have hit upon a winning formula. They now have 3 pubs in Leeds and another 12 across the county. If you are in leeds then I recommend that you call in to Veritas and enjoy what they have to offer.
