Eating Out

One of the best places to visit in West Yorkshire, England is the village of Saltaire, just North of Bradford’s city centre. Its location in the heart of the moors and Bronte Country, as well as its colorful history makes Saltaire an ideal place for a weekend holiday.

Eating Out in Saltaire
There are two “can’t miss” restaurants in Saltaire.


No visit to Saltaire would be complete without a meal at the famous bar and restaurant in the heart of the village called Don’t Tell Titus located on Victoria Road.

This cosy place gets it name from the story of Sir Titus Salt who built the village of Saltaire as a planned community for the employees of his mill. Because he was a proponent of the temperance movement of the mid 19th century, there were no pubs or saloons built in Saltaire. Of course things are different these days and the management of this establishment are happy to provide food, drink, and merriment, “but don’t tell Titus…” Today, Don’t Tell Titus is a place where you can enjoy not just drink but delicious food as well. It is one of the most popular spots in Saltaire. It has recently been renovated and is open from 10:00 a.m. until midnight.

Don’t Tell Titus offers bar food like fish fingers, kebabs, breaded Brie wedges, and American fare like chicken wings and breaded, stuffed jalapeno peppers. The restaurant menu includes the famous Titus Burger, Chicken and Leek Pie, Rump of Lamb, charbroiled fillet, and a variety of curries. They also offer a several different coffees as well as pastries.


Another great choice for meals in Saltaire is The Old Tramshed Brassiere, an award winning restaurant and pub. It has become a landmark for both the locals and visitors. The building dates back to the early days of Saltaire when it served as a tram shed at the gateway into the village.

The home cooked food at the Tramshed has won multiple awards, as has the management team. They also serve many local, regional, and imported cask ales that have won awards as well. They serve a variety of wines by the glass or the bottle.

The Tramshed’s menu is extensive menu and includes traditional English fare like Bangers and Mash and Pie of the Day. Enjoy the Tramshed Burger or a steak slow-cooked in Guinness with Yorkshire pudding. They have a variety of lighter fare as well. Their regular dishes can be altered to meet any specific dietary requirements as needed.

They have a large outdoor section where you can enjoy your meal or just relax in the sun and sip a beer or two. Stay on after dinner and enjoy their nightly entertainment of music or comedy.
