On an ancient highway in the Calder Valley linking Yorkshire and Lancashire, this timeless stone-built dining pub oozes history. Pilgrims to Whalley Abbey called at an inn here when Henry VII was king. Beams and brasses, rustic furniture and slabbed stone floors welcome today’s pilgrims intent on sampling the comprehensive menu, either as a bar meal or in the atmospheric dining room. Typical choices include a three-layer meat and potato pie; Thai green chicken curry and homemade lasagne. Wash it down with a pint of JW Lees Manchester Pale Ale.
