The Kirkless Hall Inn is at the ‘Top Lock’ of a flight of 21 canal locks. So it’s a great place to stop for a refreshing pint after an ascent of the flight. There is space to sit outside and it is dog-friendly.

Thank you for your review, all our staff are dog friendly and dogs allowed also in the games room (not the food area). We hope to see you again soon! :)

Great and friendly service, plus the barman took time out to fill my empty water bottles and wish me well on my charity walk :)

We visited at the weekend and enjoyed our visit. The lady who served us was really nice and the food was good with decent portion sizes. The pub is right on the canal so ideal for a quick stop off.
