This stone-built country inn stands at the fringe of Bolton's remarkable lakeland; a string of reservoirs wrapped around the foot of the West Pennine Moors. No surprises, then, that the peaceful beer garden is a target for ramblers slaking their thirst with beers from the local Blackedge Brewery. At heart The Yew Tree is a popular destination dining pub, with hearty British dishes to the fore – typically pan-roasted lamb cannon, parsley root purée, Jerusalem artichoke and spring cabbage; or Chateaubriand for two and hand-cut chips. Log fires warm the light interior of this rural retreat; whilst Good Friday sees a beer and cider festival here.
