You'd be forgiven for missing the place on the winding road between Todmorden and Cliviger, but you should definitely make sure to stop off here at some point! The staff and patrons are all very friendly and the food is amazing. The pub itself is very quaint, well kept and comfortable. The Staff of Life offers a more unique selection... More

A huge board with the rare beast in the centre excellent chips onion rings and cherry tomatoes. Served with sauce of your choice I had pepper Peter had Diane. How full... More

Visited here with friends and had another good night. It is a quirky place, but with character. There were 8 of us, but service was still good. There was a good choice of starters, but not your run of the mill ones. To follow 2 people had fish and chips, 2 had steaks, 2 had the Gammon, I had roast... More

A cold December evening saw us wander up to the edge of Todmorden's boundaries and to The Staff of Life, nestled on a winding road below Eagles Crag. The pub is the kind of pub, that when you walk through the door people turn & stare, then smile & get on with their business. We sat in a cosy nook,... More

I chose lamb chops from the specials board- Expected better- the fat wasn't Rendered & was therefore inedible- presentation - no better than... More

The staff of life has a reputation as a foody pub..... well deserved in my opinion!.... It has a great menu of truly superb food and the beers are really well kept - best time to visit is mid winter - sit by the roaring open fires and get some proper food down !

I have eaten here many times now and on every occasion bar 1 I would give a 5 out of 5 for the delicious food. I had one slightly less than the high standard I expect from them meal, I suspected the normal chef was off. The pub itself has a very homely feel and the service is good but... More

The last time I went to the Staff was over 20 years and I never thought I'd be going again! We were taken there this time by some friends and I'm glad I returned. The pub is full of character, serves good beer and has an excellent menu. I opted for the Ron Jeremy and like it's namesake it was... More
