A GOOD night out can often can often carry sweet memories for years, and that has proved to be case in Bradford.

In a post the Telegraph & Argus shared on Facebook, we asked: “If you could only choose one, which Bradford pub would you choose as your favourite?”

While the question proved to be thought-provoking for some, with one reader piping back: “I couldn’t possibly choose just one.”

Others were more definitive in their replies, but the question provoked 266 posts in total from T&A readers (by 3pm on Saturday afternoon).

The responses, of course, varied from person to person with readers giving a shout out to their favourite local to others who highlighted public houses in or near the city centre.

A number of pubs from across the district received multiple responses, many of which were also Liked by other Facebook users.
