Cosy, friendly and offering fine ale and the best home cooked food, visitors to Symposium are welcomed by a warm, intimate ambience both in the bar area and the rear snug.

From the snug an outdoor balcony area can be accessed offering al fresco drinking and dining during the Summer months (Yorkshire weather permitting!).

Housed in a Victorian building which was formerly a General Grocers and Wine Merchants, Symposium which opened in early 2001 has for many years been a well loved pub and restaurant located in the centre of Idle village. Symposium is very much at the heart of the local community, used as a meeting place for many local groups and organizations and is the perfect place for private functions.
