Cold beer. Hot food. Live sport.
Get a great big Yorkshire welcome at our very own traditional English pub which doesn’t skimp on heartiness and is packed full of old-school character. Located in the basement of the Union, Old Bar is the place on campus to enjoy the very best in live sporting events. If you’ve worked up an appetite the Old Bar is certainly the place to be. Expect to get your teeth into some seriously hearty grub including a good honest burger or a generous wedge of pie, all washed down with a fine ale or local craft beer. Our beers and ales really are something to write home about; they’re award-winning and many are even sourced from local micro-breweries in the heart of Yorkshire. Pair that with the fact that Old Bar is the regular haunt for our Real Ale Society and has been accredited with Cask Marque status, and you know you’ll be kicking back with a quality brew. Old Bar is also the home to our famous pub quizzes, multiple food and drink festivals, renowned live gigs and hundreds of popular club and society events. The two extra large projection screens and seven plasma screens we have dotted around the bar make us the home of live sport and ensure our students can enjoy all the latest fixtures. Plus – we’re in danger of showing off here – but we can even show two different games at once, so whether you’re into football, tennis or golf or even curling you’re on to a winner down at the Old Bar!
