Having spent years driving on the M62 and seeing the pub from the motorway with a full car park, my partner and I were looking forward to trying the place out finally. The decor and the overall appearance of the pub is fantastic. However, this is let down by the food. The cheapest ingredients, with little flavour. For the price,... More

We live a few miles from this pub/restaurant and had to meet some business colleagues for dinner. The food was fine; just typical pub food. The service was the issue. Plates left finished for too long and service between courses was slow. It was really not busy. This place could be much better.

Was passing by so decided to stop for a bite to eat. Place was nice & clean but virtually empty but this could have been due to being a week day and past the lunch run. Staff friendly. Food was slow to come & average in taste. Could have been just a bad choice I thought but my partner didn't... More

Had a really relaxing meal ... Bit of a long wait but it was worth it. Very friendly and attentive staff. Welcoming atmosphere. Reasonable prices, menu has something for everyone, and best of all ... The food is served on proper plates !! Definitely would go again.

Had lovely night at this beautiful place. Room superb. Food top class. Staff really couldn't do enough for us. Had a meal in the evening which was excellent, next morning breakfast was also lovely. We will be returning soon and next time our dogs will join us.

On Wednesday last week myself and a friend visited the Turnpike for a late lunch as we were passing on our way home. We do live quite locally so we are well aware of its reputation of being on the lower end of average and therefore we were not expecting to be blown away by the food or the service.... More

Me and the husband recently spent a night at The Turnpike Inn at Rishworth on their Wine, Dine & Duvet deal. For £120 we got a double room, £40 towards dinner, a bottle of wine and breakfast. At that price you can't fault it! The room we had, number 5, was large, bright and airy and looked out over the... More

My grandma was made to feel like a queen by staff and other diners in the pub! The food was lovely and my Grandma... More

I will not be going back for a second. Visited lunchtime for a sandwich when it arrived it was missing one of the ingredients, very poor bread just put together not served nicely at all. When I complained it was replaced which was altogether different, why couldn't it be like that first time for such a basic request.

if you've ever driven over the Pennines you would have seen this pub/hotel from afar, we decided to try and find the pub and I was so glad we did. The pub was fantastic with very friendly staff who made you feel welcome if you were a first time visitor or a regular. The food however took the staring role... More
