    Default Bradford

    Hi all,

    Off to Bradford for the match next Tuesday night. Not sure how long I'll have before the match but should be able to take a few pubs in.

    Any tips ??

    Cheers,

    Del.

    On a recent visit to Bradford (not fully written up yet, unfortunately), I enjoyed the following: Monty's, The Sparrow, The Corn Dolly, The Fighting Cock, Haigy's and The Shoulder Of Mutton.

    Unfortunately, the New Beehive and the Castle were both major disappointments (although I might have caught both on a bad day) and the Boy & Barrel is just rather sad.

    Of the two 'spoons, the Sir Titus Salt is more interesting than the Turls Green.

    Cheers mate I shall give some of them a try. If all goes to plan we should have 2 or 3 hours to kill.

    I've reviewed most of the pubs suggested by rp in the last 12 months.

    I'd also add City Vaults

    Looks like I am meeting a mate in the Royal Oak - The Royal Oak - A bit out of the centre but there are a few pubs nearby.

    It might be a little too far but if you fancy a walk down the hill into Idle Symposium Ale and Wine Bar should be a good bet for choice and quality.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    That lines me up nicely for the one place near Bradford I would have liked to have found time to visit - the Idle Working Men's Club - not just club name of the year, but club name of any year!

    Will that be your bid Delboy? Hope the beers you tried made up for the result.
