The Old Bar has been a favourite venue for students since 1939, we pride ourselves on our fun and friendly staff and lively events programme. At the Old Bar we like to have a good time and want you to join in!


We offer students a wide range of hot and cold drinks, a great affordable food menu and we are the only venue in LUU to offer Real Ale.


We are proud to be a Blacksheep Brewery Flagship and  you can always find their beer on offer at the Old Bar alongside our wide range of guest ales which are locally sourced from microbreweries across Yorkshire. We have also just been accredited with Cask Marque status!
