I'd passed the Ginger Goose late on Friday evening. It had bouncers on the door and had a rough appearance. I gave it a miss in favour of the City Vaults. But I was back on Saturday morning. CAMRA's website records this place as having no real ale. But as the previous two reviewers state, they do have Saltaire Blond, which I availed myself of. The window seats are the prime position in this pub. Local blokes were watching the goings on in the street, with Centenary Square just on the other side. The clientele seemed similar to that of a Wetherspoon's. Given I couldn't locate a 'spoons in the city, this may be why. Snooker was on the TVs. Pretty poor pub in all though.

I had a similar experience to RealAleRob. Only Saltaire Blonde on, I tried Kronenbourg at 3.70 which is steep for Bradford. They were offering Caffreys at 1.70 though which is a bit strange. The place itself is just a massive room with TVs, fruit machines and a lot of tables, there is an upstairs bit but I didn''t bother going up there. It''s okay I guess but the place smelt a bit like Subway which was a bit strange at first but we got used to it. Not a place I would rush back to but it''s in a good location so if you get a window seat you would see some interesting things going on outside.

Ventured in today, of the 5 pumps at the bar only a solitary one was clipped, offering Saltaire Blonde. Decided to leave in search of something I haven't had before. A bit disappointing compared to my previous visit.

Ventured in the Ginger Goose on a weekday around lunch time. Yes, it seems very Wetherspoons-esque, but on the upside it is a large pub with plenty of seating and a decent sized bar.

On the real ale front there were 5 hand pumps, offering Naylor's Black & Tan (4.4%), Salamander Golden Salamander (4.5%), Saltaire Blonde, Tetley Cask, and one pump was off. There is a second bank of 5 pumps but these were not in use.

I went for the Black & Tan which cost £2.70 for the pint. The young barman took his time to pour a decent pint. I was served quickly. Quite a few punters in at my lunch time visit, and they didn't all look like the dregs of the earth!

The Black & Tan was a very pleasant pint, technically down as a porter but I believe a mix of bitter and porter recipes. In good condition, no issues with temperature, and very drinkable!

Popped in for a quick one last Sunday as I was walking from Forster Square to Interchange and the place is in this year's GBG. Very Wetherspoon-like but with even more tv screens. The service was quick and friendly, the beer was in good condition and two pounds fifty a pint: it's not really my preferred type of pub but I have no complaints at all and would gladly visit again.
