With the wholehearted support of Thwaites Brewery, supplier of its cask ales, the pub has won many local and national food awards; Top Bunk is the house ale. Landlord Glen Duckett specialises in what he calls Grandma's favourite classics, so look out for Double Bomber cheese and onion pie served in an old enamel pie dish; or beer-battered haddock fillet. He also offers 'more refined' plates, including local rabbit and Bury black pudding boudin; fillet of Cornish lemon sole; and pressed Bowland ox cheek. There's a vegan menu too, and snacks in the bar. A work in progress is the 'incredible edible' beer garden which is inspiring children and indeed the pub’s clientele to grow, cook and eat delicious high-quality produce with minimum food miles. When finished it will contain an outdoor kitchen and bar, vegetable and compost beds, fruit shrubs, mini-orchard with chickens, children's play area and more. From the Orangery dining room there's a terrific view across the Irwell. The pub is a refreshment stop on the East Lancs Rail Trail from Heywood to Rawtenstall. An objective of Glen’s is to attract marginalised 16-25-year-olds, into careers in the pub, catering and hospitality trades.
