WITH pubs set to remain closed for some time under lockdown, we’re taking a look back at some of the Bradford pubs we miss.

The historic Cock and Bottle pub in Barkerend, above, was a perfect example of Victorian pub opulence and has had a turbulent planning history over the years. The pub appeared in 1983 film The Dresser, starring Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay, which was shot at various locations in the city, including the Alhambra.

Then there was The Bradfordian. The Westgate pub was given the name in 1984 and re-opened with a traditional look, complete with a ‘miniature music hall’ for live entertainment and a resident pianist with a repertoire of 5,000 songs

The Rooley pub in Bradford is now McDonald’s on Rooley Lane. It is pictured above shortly before demolition in the 1990s.

Also pictured is the George and Dragon in Great Horton, when the pub opened after a re-fit in1989. Planning consent was granted last year for residential use of the building.

The once popular Roebuck pub on Harrogate Road, Greengates, closed in 2013 and was later demolished to make way for a Farmfoods store. Here it’s pictured in 1995.

And who remembers The Flagship? The city centre pub was a popular lunchtime haunt for office workers and was a lively pub at weekends. Here it is pictured in 1985.

TJ Hamilton’s, formerly the Wellington Pub in Eccleshill, had a restaurant and cocktail bar. In 1985 Page Three girls Linda Lusardi and Angie Layne turned heads on a promotional visit.

And at the Empress, the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor John Senior, pulled the first pint when the pub re-opened with a new look in 1980. The Sunbridge Road pub’s Victorian style mahogany bar was a nod to its days as the Empress Hotel.

In 2008 local band Analog Bomb joined a gathering at the site of the old Tumblers club to protest about pub closures in the city.

More than a decade later, it remains a concern.
