Only 2 places open. Disappointed!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Don't know if we missed out or dodged a bullet but only rose and crown and wallers were open. The staff at wallers were very friendly though and we both enjoyed our drinks there. Checked online before going and said it opens at 12 even on a Thursday but that was sadly not the case. Traveled from Leeds so wasted journey.

Very unusual place but worth a visit. Lots different pubs with good food as well. We were a crowd of 12 and found it hard to sit together so might suit smaller crowds.

This is an amazing place to visit with many interesting features. Hand made crafts to see and buy, which are so individual and bespoke.

Fabulous for food & drink

This really is an excellent place. Once inside you can get lost in the many different areas and is a genuinely great place to spend an afternoon or evening.

A mixture of bars and restaurants can be found in this tunnel like venue, spread over a few different floors, definitely worth a look to see if anything takes your fancy!

Dec 2019 • Couples
This amazing atmospheric place was a real find. We tried fabulous gins at great prices and others ate fresh pizza from nearby woodburning pizza restaurant, brought to the table! Also sharing charcuteterie boards. Good atmosphere. Intimate and cozy. Worth a trip to Bradford for this alone!

What a gem!! Fabulous!.
Dec 2019
Quite by chance we came here after a tour of The Bradford Club, a former Gentleman's Club in the conservation area of Piece Hall.
It's an astonishing surprise set behind Wetherspoon's in the main town hall square, it should be better signposted.
Inside you seem to step back in time, not only because of the vaulted roofs and quirky staircases and all its history but also because of the atmosphere. Gin bars, pubs, eateries, all lit up for Christmas it really is a wonderful place. The Council should signpost it better.
There are various themed evenings and afternoons eg Ska, Motown music etc well worth return visits.

"OUT OF THE LIGHT"
Oct 2019
Bradford with its dark satanic mills has many interesting historical buildings.You need to look up however as usually there is an empty or £ shop at the bottom of same! Such a shame as if there were to be a serious investment in the city it could compete with its next door neighbour ,be it on a smaller scale.
'Sunbridge Wells' is an adventurous subterrainiean attempt to create life into its leisure scene with a collection of bars and eating establishments. It is a unique area below a main Bradford thoroughfare and first impressions were excellent on our initial visit last year.
The first bar you encounter up a long corridor adornded with photos of 60's bands (nb.- Why??) is 'Wallers ' .This is on the site of what was originally 'Wallers Brewery' and jail house.No problems with disorderly clients in the old days!
My best friend Thorpie and I have frequently visited 'Wallers Bar' in this complex and usually find it very good .This was to change on this occasion however.My pint of 'Saltaire Blond' from 'up-the-road' was cloudy with resemblance to dishwater and duly rejected.After a meeting with our lady server and two other gentlemen behind the bar it was agreed I was right. I tried another of the kind Thorpie was drinking but we left those without finishing same. Rather loud 60's nondescript soul music on the house speaker system was 'entertaining' the three staff but not us ,the only customers, so we decided to leave.
Were we to have had a good experience as before I would have been able to rate this review higher but found it only average -
