Pub of the Season, Spring 2022

Well, Spring is in the air and the lambs are bleating, and chocolate we are eating… OK, that doesn’t make sense.

What does make sense though, is that we announce our Spring Pub of the Year for 2022.

Well done to the Exchange in the City Centre

CAMRA Bradford Branch Pub of the Year 2022 – Runner-up (Central Bradford)

This establishment is located under the Victorian splendour that is the Wool Exchange building. Formerly a well-known rock pub, it was re-opened in mid-November 2018 by the owner of Hebden Bridge’s Nightjar brewery as a real and craft ale beerhouse. A mural on the back wall summarises the pub’s history. Inside, the premises are open-plan with a large seating area and bar under a brick barrel ceiling with a smaller raised seating area near the entrance. Despite being a cellar bar, the pub has a light and airy feel. In good weather, a small outdoor seating area is available to the rear. The pub is not a tap house for Nightjar brewery but at least one of their real ales is usually available on the five hand-pulls. The other real ales tend to be sourced from smaller regional breweries but can be from further afield and it is aimed to provide a good variety of beer styles from light to dark. There are ten keg taps that serve one cider and one lager plus a range of craft beers. Boxed cider is also available.
