Where to eat and drink

Crowned Curry Capital of England, Bradford restaurants have a good reputation for excellent Asian cuisine. However, Bradford district has lots to of offer whatever your taste, with restaurants covering every corner of the world.

There are some great city centre bars and restaurants, and comfortable Yorkshire pubs, many of which are situated in the district's beautiful countryside. Fanny's Ale & Cider House in Saltaire and Bar T'at in Ilkley are just two of the many pubs in the district serving local real ale.

Due to the multi-cultural community in Bradford there is food available from all corners of the world - with many eateries a stone's throw from the Theatre.
