68 /100 41 WESTGATE
“In an unassuming shop unit towards the lower end of Westgate, looking quite tiny from the outside with its own terrace built partly on the road in this commercial street in Shipley, although on the three occasions I've been here it's never been in use. The bar is upon you after you enter with some seats here, but the venue with its eclectic wall designs extends back into the building quite far in a corridor style settings, which holds the lion share of seats. Cask and crafted keg is available here.“

“In what looks like business units facing the main road as it leaves Shipley heading towards Saltaire, this is a curious venue in a room that could easily be somewhere you wait before your car under repair is returned to you. Obviously the tables in the venue make it look like a bar but even the toilets are accessed in a different part of the building so you need to leave to go! Two Little Critters specials' were on its pumps on the square service area immediately to the left on the ground floor venue after you enter. Seems to be a music bar.“

“I would guess that this is now the top craft beer pub in the Saltaire/Shipley area. The decor will either excite or irritate you, I think I'm getting both. Lots of parrots, mismatched chairs and the like. Front area is small but it goes waaaay back so you can pretty much sit wherever you like on a late Wednesday afternoon. Five cask from well-respected brewers but it was the keg that caught my attention: 6-percenters and up from Verdant, Northern Monk, Vocation and North. All new to me. I opted for the Vocation, which carried a decent price. OK, so service was indifferent but its a slow night. Recommended, big time.“

“I've gotta have a soft spot for a place that does music lessons (albeit at a separate entrance to the bar). The bar itself is a simple outfit up the stairs, with wooden floors and tables and coloured mood lighting. It's only four months old so still has that new smell. The beer list isn't so terribly impressive: Four cask ales from local micros (plus a 'Groove Pad' blonde) commented by a few bottles (Timmermans, Brewdog etc). Not a destination but the beer condition is spot on and the music-oriented atmosphere appeals to me.“

“Lovely little pub not far from Shipley station. It is a proper one-room micropub with a couple of beers from Beespoke in cask and keg alongside choices from the likes of Durham, Small World, Abbeydale, Deya and Mallinsons. Small bottle/can selection, not much you can't get elsewhere but always good to have a slightly augmented choice. Between here and the nearby Hullabaloo, Shipley is turning out to be a decent stop.“

“Handy for the station, and displays train times in the bar. good selection friendly helpful staff, laid back ambience. We stumbled across it while looking for somewhere else, and it was an unexpected treat.“

“In an undistinguished shop unit in a very locals area at the top end of Shipley, it’s just a couple of minutes walk from the local ASDA if you find yourself buying groceries in this area. The pleasant owner is very knowledgeable and the beers are well laid out into relevant sections. There’s lots of craft brewed beers from the more funky brewers up and down the country, with some very strong ales sold here too. I came away with some Torrside bottles.“

“On the main road in the modern area of Saltaire above the UNESCO preserved areas, this is a small cramped shop that includes a post-office, but the beer selection in the front part to the left as you enter won’t disappoint. There’s a mix of UK and European bottles with plenty of locally produced ones also available including some strong ones from the Ilkley Brewery not too far away.“

“This is the rating for Tap House and Bottle Shop, since the event is only at certain days... And it was not on the day I visited the place. Actually, we could only drink from bottle on the day of our visit. But they have a nice selection of Saltaire beers and other breweries. It seems like a nice place to return.“

“It’s been a couple of years since I was last here so I don’t know if things have changed since, but it’s worth pointing out that Brewery Beer Club is just one event that happens on the premises - the Tap House and Bottle Shop that exists here is open to all throughout the week selling a range of their own ales and guest on both the aforementioned tap and in bottles. It’s a little out the way, in an industrial area opposite the canal to the north of the rail station, but friendly and convivial once found as some thought has been put into the public coming here for the Tap and Club.“

Triangle (Beer Store)
“A really nice looking bottle shop that carries a wide selection of beers fro around the world, The Belgian and Dutch selection is particularly impressive. A small selection of fresh baked goods from nearby Edward Street Bakery are available daily. They also have a coffee machine there now and are working on a license to serve on premise . Gavin who is one of the owners is knowledgeable and very friendly. a must visit if you’re in the local area.“

“Essentially just a shop unit close to the wide main road junction a couple of minutes walk away from and below the main commercial market square area. The small rectangular room has been converted well and there’s an air of a Belgian beer house about the place, and in a similar style each table has a menu booklet that only contains the beers on offer in the bar. There’s plenty to choose from and most are bottled beers for which there’s about 50 excellent choices to be had, most of which you would not find in the majority of bars in the vicinity and beyond. For more traditional drinking there’s six hand pumps with a rotating selection and a few other fairly interesting keg options that include Belgian beers.“

“Purposeful rather than elaborate Wetherspoon pub that serves a local clientele. Situated in a bland corner building of the tired looking Market Square, it adheres to the traditional pub look of the chain with carpets, slightly lower lighting and plenty of wooden tables in the open space in front of the bar against the side wall. There’s 10 hand pumps here with a decent choice that had a very Yorkshire bias to it ales on my visit.“

“Nicely decorated traditionally styled pub in its own building a few minutes walk up the main road towards Saltaire. It’s clearly had some money put into it whilst retaining the buildings historic features including an open fireplace. The central doorway includes two entrances either side of a central bar, however it’s all open plan inside so whatever door you choose matters little. Seating is either side of the bar in what was probably two rooms in the past, one area includes pub clip wallpaper, the other has the real used ones on one wall that have a very Yorkshire craft brewer bias. There’s six ale pumps here with several always on rotation.“
