Stayed one night in a lovely room with amazing views. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious, served hot with fresh juice and coffee. Definitely a place to return to as we never felt rushed or in need of hurrying to vacate our room. Enjoyed a night cap with the owner on return from our evening out.

We were yet again very disappointed in the quality of the service and food on Friday. It took over an hour for the food to arrive (we only ordered a pizza and calzone) When the food was put on the table it looked like the calzone has been dropped on the floor and slapped back on the plate. Undercooked and... More

The inn is in a peaceful rural area and a decent bar choice with a warm welcome and friendly service. Food speciality is wood oven pizza but there are other menu choices, pizza was pretty good. Rooms are clean and functional and the bar has a good atmosphere with locals and music in the evenings.

If you are looking for a cozy pub with a nice restaurant set in possibly the best location in sowerby bridge then look no further. They have recently brought in new chefs with a new menu and new ideas. I was impressed with what I saw.

We stayed for one night as a break from a house that's currently like a building site :) Seemed like the plumbing gremlins followed us from home as there was a minor problem in the room. It didn't spoil our stay though and the landlord and landlady couldn't do enough to make our stay a good one. The bar is... More

1 hour 20 minutes for our food, and I'd only ordered a toasted sandwich. The pub is nice on a sunny day with lovely views of the valley, but I would not go back. When we asked about how long our food would be, we were rudely told there was a queue and we should wait our turn without apology... More

We arrived at the alma in the lovely weather after a lovely walk. We sat out in the beer garden and got some drinks. We went to the bar and ordered our food- to which we were greeted with unfriendly and unwelcoming staff. We were told that our order wouldn't go to the kitchen for 15 minutes as they were... More

Judging by the filthy cushions, the dog/s have the priority over paying customers. We just popped in for a drink, but I wouldn't want to eat there, no matter how delicious the pizzas look. Some call it cozy, I call it scruffy. Hair of the dog? No thanks
