Enter this traditional 19th-century inn on a former packhorse route above the River Colne and the Huddersfield Canal and you’ll find yourself in a rambling series of rooms, fire-warmed in winter. The restaurant’s brasserie-style food is exemplified by starters of beetroot and grilled goats' cheese salad; or smoked haddock fish cakes, while typical main dishes include duo of lamb – roast rack and braised breast, with sticky red cabbage; or wild mushroom and Stilton risotto. Enjoy a pint of Greenfield Dobcross Bitter from Saddleworth on the sun deck and admire the views of Marsden Moor Estate.
