Tucked away at the back of Todmorden, a great little place to eat & stay. Good selection pub & bistro food with some very interesting dishes on the specials. Great atmosphere and good service. Always a pleasure to return.

We have dined here before and had good food but the service fell short.

On this occasion we went for the Sunday lunch. Both the starters and the main courses were excellent but again the service was not up to expectations. No complaints about the friendliness of the staff but I do not like having to go to the bar to order/replenish drinks and it took a long time to clear the table between courses, even though it was not particularly busy. Small complaints but they do detract from what otherwise is a good impression.

We shall go again but not in a great rush.

Set in the heart of the countryside the staff of life is a brilliant find, according to my boyfriend this used to be a bikers pub but caters it seems now for a different wider clientel, we enjoyed a wonderful meal there last night, many tables where reserved but staff still managed to fit us in, in what became increasingly obvious as a very popular eatery, if id have know how wonderful a place it was id have definately booked beforehand. you wont beleive it when you walk through the door, its cosy candlelit, woodburner setting is amazing!, very romantic id say! , they serve the most unusual cask ales and the menu is really imaginative, we ordered traditional gammon steak and the size of the two steaks per plate we massive!, the meal was delicious and as we were eating we heard one couple tell the staff to pass on his complements to the chef ..... too right!! , eveything was fantastic, definately my favourite eating place now!! ............... ill DEFINATELY be coming back!! x

We booked for 25 family members for my Mum's 90th birthday party - all ages from 8 to 90!
Everything was great - the staff, the food and the pleasant atmosphere..
In spite of the numbers everything went like clockwork and nothing was too much trouble.
I think between us we might have tried most things on the menu and no-one was disappointed.
There was no delay between courses, and all the food was cooked and presented nicely.
The beer was much appreciated by those who know!! And all the staff were cheerful and accommodating. Thanks again..
