A fairly recent addition to the real ale scene in Shipley, this small pub is the bees knees. Always six well kept traditional ales available plus unusual European lagers on draught such as Grimwalden. Plenty of ciders, Belgian and other foreign bottled beers. If you have the head for it try Kasteel Rouge, coming in at around 8%ABV one is enough.

Small but nice menu and friendly service. Decent smokers area at the rear, and if you look up you will see part of old Shipley and perhaps a spectre!!!!

I have become a fan of this bar, and it's easy to see why once you've tried it.

This new bar serves great beers and ciders. Not your usual mainstream stuff, but guest ales and bottles from all over the world. They also do food at lunch times and their curry is to die for. All homemade too and reasonably priced. They even do Schnyders Jalapeno Pretzels. Even if you don't go for the food, just go and try the amazing range of beer. Dead handy for the station and great music is an added bonus.

The Fox is a small pub (not quite a micro but close to it) with something like six real ale pumps offering a selection of ales. Also has real German lager, some cider, a decent selection of malt whisky and the best selection of gin I have seen in ages. Limited food menu at the moment and I never got to try it but sounds good.

We visited The Fox in February prior to heading on to the Bradford Beer Festival up in Saltaire. I was hugely impressed with this pub, it has a modern, clean continental feel and a fantastic range of beers. My husband had the Magic Rock Pepper which he said was gorgeous, and the Black Iris Citra Pale which he loved too. I had Fanny's Bramble Cider which was lovely.

Loved the decor, a lot of thought has been put into the way the venue is decorated and the lighting was beautiful - big light windows for the day and when we returned in the evening the lighting was lower with a lovely comfortable atmosphere. This is a pub that as a woman, I would have no hesitation in visiting alone.

Lovely service, great atmosphere, brilliant range of beers and ciders. Well worth a visit and we'll be back.
