Pennine-fringe inn with great views and fine food

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Originally a farmhouse that sold ale, this rural inn dating from 1709 occupies a commanding position overlooking the Calder Valley. Ales from Marston's, Jennings and a guest brewery are in the bar, where reminders of the pub's former life can be seen, in winter by the flickering light of the huge log fire. Fine locally-sourced dishes prepared by a five-strong kitchen team include Thai spiced fishcake, wilted pak choi, lemongrass, chilli and coriander broth, followed by roasted rump of lamb, braised and pressed shoulder, charred aubergine, anchovy jus.
