About the Pub

Built in 1742, this pub is named after one of the ships that beat the Spanish Armada in 1588; legend has it that some of the timbers were once part of the same boat. In more recent times the original three room layout of the old part of the building has been reduced to two. The front bar-lounge is traditionally furnished, although the fittings are difficult to date. lt has a typical low ceiling of the time, as well as a small and cosy snug. The large modern restaurant extension to the rear covers the site of the pub's original brewhouse, whose equipment can now be seen at Shibden Hall Folk Museum. A good selection of wines are available and the menu changes several times a year. There are occasional live music events held in a marquee, as well as other seasonal festivities, whilst the restaurant is also available as a function room. Large outdoor seating areas some of which are covered.

A barrel previously used to dispense beer now contains water and is the ‘dog bar’ near the entrance complete with bowl for well-behaved, thirsty pooches.
