The Delacy Hotel, Bradford

Used to go with my uncle here in the early 70s...a pint & a fight, a great British night.

The Black Bull, Ripon

A real shame about this pub. My sister went to Ripon/St John of York teacher training college in Ripon in the late 1970s and I used to visit her during the 3 years she was there and we went to the Bull almost daily for food which, in them days, was good and cheap. The first time I had butter on my bread when having soup, buttered bread never heard of at home. The pub had good Theakstons ales and decent lagers and was full of character and charm and frequented by a mix of students and local farmers. A real shame it's gone 'to the dogs'.

The Fountain Inn, Heaton

This was the pub I had my first pint in back in the early 80s. The landlord at the time was called Edgar and was v.partial to a drink (or 10) himself. In those days the pub had a bar corridor, a snug, a taproom and a small lounge and outside toilets.
Eventually it was bought by Frank Lee who stripped it back to bare bones & extended it...we now have inside toilets.
This pub has been closed for a number of years now and as I type on the 25th Jan 2017 is falling apart, the roof has totally collapsed. The main reason for it's demise is due to the demographic as I would guess that 90% of the locals do not drink alcohol due to religious ethics. Shame (tear in my eye).
