We'd had a bad experience with our last pub in Skipton. However we decided to come to Bingley and we had the best time dancing, drinking and having fun. My sister had a great night

This is a layer of scum that came from my pint glass. There was a hair on my partners glass. the pub looks so nice inside and out but I've never seen glassware so filthy in all my life. Stay away. Such a disappointment.

This pub could be so much nicer than it is. There are far too many television screens! Every where you look there is a screen. Come on, at least give us one section that is screen free to sit in.
