user reviews of the Wyke Lion, Bradford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Here is an update.

The Pear Tree has changed hands again but this time it has undergone a makeover. Norwood Green can easily support two pubs, especially when they don't try to copy one another.

The Pear Tree now offers a range of exceptionally well-kept ales, including standards such as Tetley's and Timothy Taylor's Landlord, but there were no less than six when we looked in, with Doombar, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, and Yorkshire Blonde amongst them.

They don't as yet do food, apart from Sunday lunch, but that may change. It's a sister pub to the Bull's Head at Gomersal.

The decor is now light, clear and airy, and the atmosphere is intended to be receptive to the genial and well-mannered. I wholeheartedly commend the management policy of protecting that last and most valuable of assets.

There are no television screens to distract or annoy, and the music is at just sufficient volume to give privacy to conversation but no more. I recommend it highly, either before or after eating at the Wyke Lion, if you want a drink and a chat in perhaps more relaxed surroundings.

The Pear Tree is now once again under good management, offering fine ales and quality food with convivial service.

My earlier comments about the nearby Pear Tree no longer apply. The tenancy there is now on offer.

I've used many Vintage Inns and they're quite reliable for a decent enough meal, glass of wine and a pint of ale. Some are quite characterful restored places too, and this is typical.

That said, the commercial nature of chain pubs such as these is quite detectable, and they're often relatively pricey. They tend not welcome drinkers only either, and frequently won't let them take tables.

The Pear Tree, in nearby Norwood Green offers a more relaxed, family-run, personable, and friendly alternative. They do unpretentious but good, excellent value food 1700-2000, especially Fri and Sat, and Sunday lunches too. It's comfortably lived-in, but you'll forgive that for the reasonably priced food, real ales and wines.

It's only a small place, and no threat to business here.

More of a restaurant/pub than a pub/restaurant. Usually has two real ales on, the excellent Tim Taylors Landlord and 1 other. Have been here several times over the past few years, always had a fine meal. Part of the Vintage Inns group.
