This is an old school, proper boozer. No music, no gimmicks, no garish lights and just quality beer and great craic in a traditional working mans pub. Sam smith beers on tap and bottles make the visit even more worth the trip. Massive beer garden...More

This is a really nice, traditional pub in the centre of Bradford. Cheap, good beer and a real fire place ... so unlike these new chain pubs and so much better. Well worth a visit.

Sam Smiths beer is great. On the 2-5 warm sunny days a year, you can enjoy their massive beer garden. The rest of the time, there is a cozy fire. Very nice atmosphere, wood-panelled and antique. Very local place, lot of regulars.
