I'm afraid today has to be written off as a bad night. This is number 3 on a list of pubs in a crawl from this site. There are two other punters. One of those is a bin man in his work clothes. He has just been headbutted by a foreigner (his words, not mine). To be fair, the pint of Cumberland was OK, but once the headbutted bin man had gone, I felt like I was sitting in someone's front room. I have been to many cities and taken part in random pub crawls but I dont think I have been as scared and disappointed as I have in Bradford.

Edge of town, slightly down at heel boozer, probably quite grand at one time, now a beer haven drinking den.

There is an electric organ tucked away in one corner threatening light entertainment evenings around the wulitzer.

6 real ales, kept ok & a good choice.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Castle

Oh dear, I must have caught the Castle on a really bad day. Firstly, it didn't open until 1½ hours after its advertised opening time; and secondly, the place was absolutely freezing inside. However, on the plus side, it is a fine-looking place and has a very friendly landlord. The interior has been partly opened out to form two 'L'-shaped rooms on either either side of bar which features a scattering of handpumps (not all in use) on various parts of the counter. In addition to the regular Cumberland, Empire Primal, Ringwood XXXX Porter (£3.00, and disappointing) and Broadoak KB cider were available. Overall, despite the issues, there is obviously enough here to make me want to re-visit next time I am in Bradford.
