Getting to this pub requires an effort: drop by when you walk the Pennines Way, cycle there or drive down a road signposted as a dead end. But the result will be worth it. There is an easier solution - rent a room upstairs. Convivial hosts, a welcome and an atmosphere that belongs to a bygone age. Good home cooking style pub grub - half a roasted chicken piri piri, fish & chips, steak, thai fish cames, local cheese, a variety of other popular dishes and local beer. No this is not a gastropub; they don't serve food all day or everyday and the only hint of Michelin are the tyres on the cars outside. This what many country pubs try to be but mostly fail; a 21st century English pub that still maintains an old world charm, where you can have a conversation with the hosts and fellow visitors. You leave this pub with one thought: I'd like to come here again.
