"I cant understand any praise that this pub gets, I agree with another comment on here which says its over rated. They have a good range of hand pulled ales but I havenít had a good pint in here yet. Its no good just having a wide selection of ales, you have to know how to look after and serve them. On top of all this is the overly expensive prices which makes one look elsewhere. "

"just fancied a pint of shandy on 2/1/09 and as i was passing called in & the first thing i saw was my favorite ale on drought(speckled hen)so ordered a drink for myself,s/hen shandy and half of amstel for my wife only to be told in no uncertain terms if i want shandy you can only have tetleys as the others are proper ales(isn't tetleys proper ale ?),when questioned about this i was told it was managers orders and basically take it or leave it,i left it and won't be returning again as obviously the customer isn't always right."

"Handy when you come off the train but thats it, heard a lot about this pub and its my first time in Leeds. Sunday quiet inside very busy outside, think they could to a bit to improve, bar staff not to good had to ask for a top up."

"Very over rated and expensive. I have been in a few times and have yet to have a decent pint. I don't go in anymore. "

"'The Taps' is over-rated.
It's noisy, badly trained staff, full of egomaniacs from BT.
Best avoided, The Prince of Wales nearby is a better place by far."

"Famouse Edwardian-era pub, with a quickly rotating selection of real ales (3-6 on at any given time). Very popular with business people, shoppers, and lovers of independent Yorkshire breweries.
End of January and mid-August they have a beer festival, with up to 50 beers during that week (10 extra hand-pumps are on for festivals.
Decent food, good size portions.
The usual batch of lagers are available, as is a large selection of whiskeys and spirits.
Very large, spacious interior can get absolutely jammed on an evening.
The down side is the gent's loo: pretty horrible, let's leave it at that.
Doesn't have anything near the problems it used to as a football hooligan's pub.
If you haven't tried it, give it a go. It is a mecca for real ale fans."

"Always good beer, handy if you've half an hour between trains. If you've got any longer than that, though, walk down the road to The Grove"

"Having been in the Scarboro taps on a number of occasions both as an individual and in a group, I have always found it to be friendly with a good range of beers. The food portions are generous and the quality is good. I would recommend this pub to anyone who is in the area."

"decent pub, local to Leeds City train station, popular with people having a quick pint before home, many moons ago it was very popular with the local football hooligans waiting to ambush visiting supporters now thankfully the pub has been transformed into a decent friendly pub which is nice and cheap."

"Known as the Scarborough Taps - famous football pub just outside the station & until a couple of years ago still a good place to meet up before the match. Then it was refurbished & all the character vanished. Even the draught Tetleys did not taste the same. Give this pub a miss."
