Aqualung . left this review about The Corn Dolly

As noted below this is an old open plan pub with a pool area over to the right. A collection of GBG stickers on the door leading to the toilets confirm a lengthy stint in that book. The walls are adorned with pump clips, Bradford City Football stuff and other bric-a-brac.
The long bar has four pairs of hand pumps interspersed with standard keg fonts. The beers available were Abbeydale Moonshine & Absolution, TT Boltmaker, Pictish Sorachi & Mount Hood, Moorhouse White Witch, GK Old Speckled Hen and Sonnet 43 Raven. I tried five of these with prices from £3.15 to £3.40 and all were excellent.
I thought this was a very good pub and well worth a diversion from the main drag. It's quite close to the Bradford Travelodge.

Quinno _ left this review about Corn Dolly

An old school two room (knocked through a little but ostensibly separated) boozer. Fairly untouched 70s refurb with ye olde beams and plaster wattle walls. Copper topped bar and tables add to the effect. The left side was more quiet (look out for Bradford City memorabilia here), whilst the right had pool, a collection of trophies and a telly, tuned to Rugby World Cup on my visit. Hundreds of old pump clips everywhere, a testament to their ale range. Whilst we’re on the subject, there were eight on the go, I tried Moorhouse Ruby, Tim Taylor Boltmaker and Durham White Gold which were in very good nick. Friendly, mature clientèle who we got chatting to and one of them was good enough to return my keys which I had somehow left on the bar. As mentioned, it’s 10 mins uphill from Forster Square but well-worth the schlep. Taxis are also dirt cheap in Bradford.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Corn Dolly

The Corn Dolly is a 10 min walk from Bradford Forster Street station, slightly up hill, but nothing too strenuous. The pub is traditional in style and had a choice of 8 ales on hand pump. I went for the Phoenix Flash Flood, a good session ale and a good start for the days crawl around central Bradford. The fellow drinkers and staff in here were friendly and chatty. Hundreds of pumpclips were on display along the ceiling beams, also photos of Bradford City AFC in the lounge side.
