This is the place to drink in Shipley.Very close to the station but situated in a dull parade of shops,the conversion has been done very tastefully with traditional benches ,tables,stools and settles and interesting wall decorations with a bar to the rear left.At the back of the building is a unisex loo with pages from Private Eye plastered to the wall ,some of the cartoons gave me a good chuckle.There is a small courtyard outside .
It certainly merits the description of a micropub,the welcome was very friendly and the quality of the 6 handpumped real ale was outstanding.On my trip the offering was Saltaire Hop 256 and New World Red,Bridgestone Pennine Gold and Sandstone with house ale Beespoke Brewing Shipley Stout .I sampled four different pints and all were on top form with a pleasing mix of styles and strengths.Wine is available and there were also 8 keg taps,some offering interesting craft options.There is a quiz,and on my Wednesday evening trip live music from a guitarist and the atmosphere was genuine and lots of fun.Apparently there is often free bread and dripping on the bar,pickled eggs are also available to purchase.
I was impressed ,will most certainly return and I would say this is an unmissable treat if you are in the area.

This is a friendly and welcoming some pub, with its own microbrewery named the Beespoke Brewing co. They have been brewing here for about 6 months, so I went for their Briggate Blond IPA, which definitely had some kick and was very flavoursome. There was six pumps in operation on our visit, so also tried the Cottage Resolution, which was in good shape.
There was a small kitchen off the bar, where a young lady was cooking some wholesome dishes for around the £5 mark. Another plus was the plasma screen displaying train times.

The Fox is situated along a row of shops that look down at heel.
Once inside i really took to this small pub.
There is a small single oblong shaped room with the bar to the rear left,the floor is bare boarded,the seating pew type and chairs.there are lots of brewery related posters on the walls.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Phoenix Navvy,which went down very well,the other beers noted were,Naylors Velvet,Prospect Whatever,Bespoke Plain bitter and Bespoke Cask lager.
Food was being served and decent background music was playing.
This is the sort of pub i could stay in for a good session.
