The Crown’s fully stocked bar features a wide range of craft beers, real ales and international lagers. Not only that, but as of early 2023 there will be a six-tap beer wall that allows customers to pour their own pints and beat the queues.

Hungry punters will be able to indulge in a lip-smacking selection of sports fan favourites including juicy burgers, cheesy pizza, wings, dirty fries and much more.

Speaking ahead of the relaunch, General manager Andrew Ingham said:
“Given the amount of history and fond memories Bradford locals have with Ye Old Crown, we wanted to make sure its reinvention as a sports bar did not disappoint. We’re confident customers both old and new will love The Crown, as we truly believe it’s going to be the very best place to enjoy sport in Bradford and cheer on England in the World Cup.

“Interactive darts is also something we’re extremely proud to bring to The Crown and the self-pour beer wall is another feature that makes our offering unique. Ivegate is undoubtedly one of the city’s liveliest areas and we’re thrilled to be sitting alongside some of the best bars and pubs in Bradford.”
