This review covers two or three recent visits there, and seems consistent at least. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, some of the decor is a little tired, and the landlord isn't overly jovial. If this doesn't bother you, then the real fires and traditional pub charm should win you over. The menu is old style pub fayre, and done very well. Prices are very reasonable, both for food and wine. Other staff are very pleasant, as you tend to meet them all as you have to go into the kitchen to order! Slightly odd, but your food is brought to the table at least, then pop back into the kitchen to pay... Don't expect a refurbished chain restaurant, do expect good portions of home made food at a reasonable price. Real ales are kept well, didn't try the whiskey selection but there certainly appear to be plenty to choose from. Great for meat eaters especially but our vegetarian has enjoyed it very much on each occasion!

Stayed here for one night last September whilst walking the Pennine Way and was underwhelmed by the welcome from the landlord and the quality of the room. Since this was the most expensive b&b of my whole walk I was expecting more than the begrudging welcome and the very tired furnishings that I found here. Having said that - the food and atmosphere in the evening was great, as was the breakfast in the morning. A bit of a mixed bag really, I'm not sure that I would stay again - just walk on to Haworth where there is more choice...

A fabulous way to spend a cold and windy day, relaxing in front of roaring fires with freshly cooked comfort food. Definitely a meat eaters paradise. (There are vegetarian options but the scent of roasting meat fills the air.) Family run place and I have been a customer for years with only positive experiences with the staff to report. The bar staff know their stuff and are happy to advise on their extensive whiskey collection if asked. I get smiles and an exchange of good manners. Its not "over the top" in an American style, but thank goodness for that. Being a publican is a tough job day in, day out for years on end. Everyone must have a bad day, but I have never observed anything other than great service. I would strongly recommend this place if you are looking for a hearty meal in a rustic atmosphere!

The bar man is unbelievably rude. And I mean unbelievably, he is almost comically in the wrong profession. He actually grunted when I enquired if they had a high chair. They don't. We stayed because the food is quite simply divine and I thoroughly enjoyed being revoltingly rude in return. Mushrooms to start were out of this world and the Lamb is the best we've ever had.
The pub has a gorgeously oldy worldly feel. It isn't the cleanest pub in the world, far from it.
If you're not too sensitive to grumpy old goat barmen, you don't want luxuriously modern surroundings but want amazing home cooked food give it a go, you won't regret it!
