Born and bred in Liverpool I am now a student in Leeds. Without a doubt,
despite the excellent club and pub scene in Leeds it's not a patch on
Liverpool's. Dr. Duncan's is a fine example and an unlikel king among
pubs. Not known for the excess of babes or young clubbers, it is essentially
an old man hangout - with its fair share of students. However, the chilled
out atmosphere means there's no intimidation and definitely no "posers".
Everyone gets along, jokes are heard from every table, and it is freakishly
easy to get into a conversation with anyone and everyone. The unrivalled
range of real ales and the numerous CAMRA awards are, of course, a bonus.
In the view of my friends and myself it has reached cult-status. You
may hate it, of course - but at least give it a try!
