Now that the Titus Salt is under new ownership you would think they would make the only remaining Bradford JDW a bit better but if anything it's got worse. It's still a Lloyds although unbranded and was much quieter on a Thursday early evening than my previous visit. There is a solitary extra hand pump which was unused. The beer choice was rubbish with the IPA version of the JDW Trio Of Doom, 2 ciders from the festival over two months ago and Daleside Monkey Wrench. I went for the Monkey Wrench (£2.15) which was in good nick but is a very sweet beer.
Score reduced from 6 to 3.

Visit October 2016

This is a fairly typical Lloyds set in a modern building with an upstairs area that I didn't venture into. The lights and the Idiot Booth are in the left corner as you enter. It was getting dark when I arrived here and found it quite gloomy inside. There was no Sound Of Music or even Mary Poppins.
There are just two sets of three hand pumps on the ground floor which had GK Abbot and IPA, Daleside Lemongrass Thai PA, Marble Earl Grey the IPA, Saltaire Cascadian Black and Everard's Tiger. The absence of Doom Bore was welcome and I went for the Cascadian Black (£2.35) which was in very good nick.
This is one of the better Lloyds but I preferred the standard JDW in Bradford and it seems a shame that they want to shut that one down.

The Turls Green is a modern looking Spoons that overlooks a grand looking square in the centre of Bradford.
Once inside there is a largish square shaped room with the bar on the right side,the room is carpeted,the seating the usual Spoons type a mix of tall and normal tables and chairs,there s also a decent sized room upstairs which has its own bar.
The guest beer choice was very poor on my Saturday morning visit,with only two beers that i fancied to drink,i had a drink of Oakham JHB which went down very well,the other guest beer was Jennings Snecklifter,there was also Spoons regulars in the form of Ruddles Best,GK IPA and Abbot.
I quite liked the views from the large windows,a decent enough Spoons that i was happy enough having a drink in.

Modern purpose-built Lloyds JDW overlooking Centenary Square and the City Hall, quite a nice location and they take advantage with a decent-sized patio seating area. Two-storey interior and the usual Lloyds-style ambience, though this one seemed a little lighter and welcoming than the usual. Being purpose-built it is indeed little more than a decorated square box, as noted below. Fair amount of ale on and mine was in decent enough nick. Fag-end of a Sunday evening visit so pretty quiet and hard to judge the usual atmosphere. I thought it was decent enough for a Lloyds, really.
