When Northern Monk announced that they were finally putting roots in the ground, and that their new permanent brewery was tucked away in Holbeck, we were pretty excited – but it’s not the just brewery that’s opened up here, they also have their own taproom, The Refectory.
Boasting a massive twenty beers on tap, including around ten of their own, The Refectory has quite the selection for you to choose from. But it’s not just beer, they’re showcasing the best of the North, with ale, wine and spirits from Yorkshire and across the Pennines.
The bar itself is simple, with benches you can share with your mates or strangers – perfect for making new friends over a beer. It’s also the most accessible brewery and taproom in the UK – surely that alone makes it worth a visit.
