The Fighting Cock is in an industrial unit area of Bradford not too far from the Castle Hotel and the New Beehive Inn. It is about 15 minutes walk from the city centre - remember Bradford is on a hill.
The pub has that old feeling of a friend, warm and welcoming. There are bare floors throughout and a single bar that runs most of the length of the back wall. Some seating in the front area has benches and stools plus the face of a wood burning stove - always on at lunchtimes in winter.
The second area has more usual seating plus the back of the stove to warm it and a TV (the music video channel is often on and can be loud sometimes. The far area has the fruit machine and toilets and also some bench seating (no cushions) and stools. The lighting is always dim, but friendly.
The bar is a dark wood affair and has all the pumps on it you can wish for. They serve up to 12 ales on at all times. If you don't fancy that they have fruit wines, cider, foreign beers on both draught and bottled.
Food is served here at lunchtimes only (Mon-Sat) and is traditional and hearty/filling for the people who work in the local area. A really nice pub and well worth the short walk to find it. Bradford CAMRA pub of the year in 2004, it well deserved it.
