Thank you for your review. We are glad you appreciated the building and enjoyed a pint at our bar. We do have a collection of very nice antique furniture throughout the building and it's nice to see it being appreciated. We are sorry if you found the stairs difficult, we usually offer to carry any luggage when showing guests up... More

Only there for one night ...just as well as we were on the top floor. It was a nightmare carrying cases up the narrow and winding stairs . There was even a door handle at the base of a door so you could open it before carrying on up more stairs!!!! I don't think we will be back!!!!

Thank you for your review. We apologise if you found the stairs difficult, the building was built in 1901 and we have tried to keep it as original as possible. There is no lift in the building but we would have been more than happy to help with your bags and apologise if this was not offered when being shown... More

On arriving in Bradford in the afternoon to see a show later on, we went straight to the Beehive to have a beer and get our bearings. The receptionist (serving in the gaslit bar) was very friendly and helpful, the locals were welcoming and the place itself was full of interest. It dates from 1901 and has been sensibly and... More

Exellent location in Central Bradford. Pleasant staff. great rates. Breakfast if booked. just need to find your evening meal. Many places locally for this. Good for staying and commuting by local transport to Leeds. close to all of these. I will be returning.

Stayed on 23rd April (Wednesday). On arrival, met by the owner William, who was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the history of the building. The quaint bar rooms and the gas lit public bar was like travelling back in time. During the evening, there were quite a few 'interesting' locals to chat to and have a bit of banter with.... More

Classic early 20th century pub with nice Edwardian touches still evident throughout. It even has the original gas mantle lighting that's still used. Check out the wonderful pics on the wall in the back room that relate to our musical past. They are simply awesome. Nice friendly barman, and good beer. Very enjoyable visit indeed.

Untouched by time. Gas lights. Coal fires. Excellent beer. If you are drinking beer in Bradford you have to visit this establishment. Check out the artwork in the back room. And the fox in the games room.

Really looking forward to visiting this pub during a recent crawl round Bradford. One of the few remaining gas lit pubs in the UK and in the CAMRA inventory. Whilst the building itself was very impressive and the period features fantastic, it felt very much like the place had lost it's way. My partner and I were the only customers... More

Quirky place with an eclectic clientele. Good selection of beers and lots of atmosphere when the pub got busy – gas-lit bar! - and there was music on downstairs when we were there. Staff friendly and helpful.
