Probably West Yorkshire’s oldest hostelry

Bar menu
Dog friendly

An inn has stood by Ripponden’s old bridge, and even earlier ford, since at least 1307. The lower bar is of cruck-frame construction, and the top bar retains its wattle and daub walls, partly later encased in stone. In addition to Timothy Taylor real ales, including Ram Tam and two guests, 14 wines are offered by the glass. Expect main courses like chickpea and potato curry with fragrant basmati rice; Bolster Moor pork pie with mushy peas; or smoked haddock and spinach pancakes, with cream and parmesan. Apparently the salad buffet has been pleasing punters since 1963. Seating outside overlooks the River Ryburn. Booking for meals is recommended.
