Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Unicorn (JD Wetherspoon)

The original building is quite old, but this pub was extended and remodelled inside by 'spoons in 2014. It doesn't really hold much character these days, with the most notable feature being the metal sculpture at the bottom of the ramp up from the main road. Also has a part-covered patio garden at the front, but despite its elevated position the views are mostly of Bramley's dull shopping centre. Total of six different real ales - including Bridgehouse Best Bitter (£2.15), Beyond the Pale from Elland and Naylor's Shamrock - and a couple of ciders from the two banks of six handpumps.

As noted below this is an original pub that has had an extension bolted on to one side of it. The conversion has made it into one long room with the bar in the middle but split into areas. There is a car park and grounds with real grass plus a garden shelter.
I arrived here at around 09:30 and was a bit peeved to find that they didn't serve alcohol until 10:00. I ordered a large breakfast which meant it was beer o' clock by the time I'd got through it.
An Elland meet the brewer event and a trip to the brewery were advertised so the bar had six Elland beers on. Two of the twelve hand pumps were unused and the rest had the two GK beers, Osset Big Red and Moorhouse Witchfinder General. I tried two of the Elland beers Beyond The Pale (£2.19) and the 1872 Porter (£2.35) both of which were in excellent condition.
This is a good Spoons and one I could easily return to. My only problem with it is that it's a fair trek from Bramley Railway Station and as it was before 09:30 I had to pay for the bus!

The Old Unicorn is a Wetherspoons pub that has been converted from an original pub,the pub is very handy for the Bramley shopping area.
Once inside there is one very long room which runs the width of the pub,the right side is the old original pub,there is a large modern extension to the left.
The bar is situated in the middle area where most seating is tall tables and chairs,the left side has lots on normal tables and chairs and seems to the main dining area,the right side is more intimate with normal tables and chairs,this is the old part of the pub.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Naylor Whitfield Pale Ale which went down very well,the other beers noted were Exmoor Gold,Robinsons Trooper,plus beers from Goose Eye,Ilkley and Spoons regulars Doom Bar,GK Abbot and Ruddles Best.
This is a decent Spoons to have a drink in.

Currently closed, but Wetherspoons want to spend £1.6 million on a refurb. However, they are awaiting planning permission as they propose to double the size of the premises.
