Saltaire village was a planned community built by Titus Salt between 1850 and 1875 to house the workers at his mill (the largest in the world). The houses and facilities offered a great improvement on those in nearby Bradford at the time. Yet one thing was missing: as a nonconformist with sympathies for the temperance movement (and a keen sense of his own business interests), Salt made sure that there was no pubs or saloons built in the village.
Times have changed, and this bar offers a comfortable haven in the village centre where you can enjoy a drink, some food and good company. But don’t tell Titus…

P.S. The name 'Saltaire' is a combination of Titus' family name and the River Aire.
