About the Pub

Built around 1826, this authentic village pub reflects the former mill village it used to serve. A former Matthew Brown house, the bar retains the Lion Ales windows and a large stone lion at roof level above the door. Close to the West Pennine moors, many local walks pass by. A comfortable lounge with open fire and a second room up a few steps.

Quiz night is on Monday, Curry night, Tuesday, live music on Thursday and Fish & chip tea on Friday.

A fine range of ales is always available with at least one dark beer and one strong ale (over 5%) and an ever changing selection from independent breweries from all over.
