The best feature for me was sitting in the Edwardian smoke room and enjoying a good pint of Salamander. This room can be found in the far right corner. This room had original cornice work and fireplace also the original call buttons were in place along the timber rails. The pub also had some fine examples etched glass. A good pub this one, defo worth a visit.

The Ring of Bells is a nice looking pub that is roughly between Shipley town centre and Saltaire.
Once inside there is a single room which runs the width of the pub,the left side has comfy bench seating and chairs,there is also a TV on this side which was showing sky football score updates,there are some tall tables and chairs opposite the bar,the room is bare boarded and has some rugs.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Saltaire Blonde which went down well,the other beers noted were Tetley Cask,Copper Dragon Golden Pippin,One from Moorhouses which i think was Black Cat and one more which i wrote down but can not read.
This is a very pleasant pub to have a few drinks in,it also kept me dry for a short while.

An appealing, stone built, roadside pub, wedged between the junction of Kirkgate and the Bradford / Bingley Rd. Early Victorian in origin, it is thought to date from 1841.

Internally, it is largely an open plan space, although a small side room remains. It would appear to have had five rooms originally, but these have been opened up down the years. Although it’s had a modern retro refurb, the lovely old, acid etched, bay windows still remain, complete with curved bench seating.

At the bar, Tetleys Bitter, Saltaire Blonde, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin and Ilkley Mary Jane are the regular beers, with up to three guests available on the other pumps. On trying the Blonde and Mary Jane, they were both in good nick and served at a decent temperature. Service, from the young barman, was efficient, if slightly cool. Bar food is available and special mention must be made of the excellent pie and peas, a snip at £2.95.

Overall, I rather liked this place. With its comfortable feel and cosy corners, I could imagine settling down for an extended session.

Listeed in the 2013 Good Beer Guide.
