Kirkstall Brewery

About the Pub


Opened in 2011 by local enthusiasts and kick-starting the North Parade bar scene, this simply furnished cafe-style pub was refurbished in May 2018, under new ownership by Kirkstall Brewery. The interior comprises painted walls with breweriana pictures and mirrors, many of which have a Scottish theme, and dark wood panelling behind the bar. There is a main bar area on the ground floor with additional seating and larger tables in the basement. Of the handpumps, four serve regular Kirkstall Brewery beers whilst two are used for guests. Nine taps behind the bar serve kegged beers, usually from small independent breweries, and one cider. There is a font for Veltins Pilsner on the bar and a good range of bottled beers is also available. Deli-style platters can be bought during opening hours. The pub can be very busy when Bradford City FC are playing at home. Live acoustic music is played on Sundays, 4-7pm.
