We had lunch there on Sunday and yet again it never failed to please us all. I had potted Cajun shrimps to start - excellent and I had ham and leek suet pudding!. They took a suet pudding to gastronomic standards. It was fabulous. My companions had the polenta starter and another vegetarian suet pudding which was equally fantastic. Another... More

I had the Ron Jeremy steak off the special board, I ordered it rare and it was possibly the best steak I have ever had, every bite was perfect, my wife had carbonara,... More

We vistied nearby Hollingworth Lake and searched in advance for a dog friendly pub to visit for lunch. The Staff of Life is located a short drive outside Todmorden on The Burnley Road. It's on a busy road but there is a car park about 50 yards before the pub on the right. It's a typical country pub, good beer/real... More

We have driven past the Staff of Life loads of times and heard nothing but good reviews about it so we thought we'd call in on the way back from another restaurant we had been to, to get a drink and have a sit down and to have a look at the menu for another time. No such luck. The... More

This is simply one of the best places to eat out, you need to book as it is full every evening. Wow what a menu what a place! I am lucky because it's not too faraway but this place never let's you down the menu is seasonal and perfection in every season!

We stayed there for a weekend and I would highly recommend it. the rooms are comfortable and in a good shape, and it's well located a some good walks and visits. However, because the B&B is also a pub it can be noisy some evenings. Breakfast is really good, and we also had dinner one night the food is great:... More
