About the Pub

Well hidden in the Gore Brook conservation area gives the Vale Cottage the feel of a country pub, indeed it is often described as the "The Country Pub in the city", it offers quality and comfort in a peaceful setting. Parts date from the 17th century, hence the low beamed ceilings, multiple drinking areas and reputed ghost. A relaxed friendly atmosphere, where conversation predominates, is disturbed only by the ever popular lively quizzes (Tuesday – general knowledge, Thursday – music). The guest beers are often from Moorhouses. Indulge in an excellent home cooked meal (lunches 12-2,30 Mon-Fri; 12-5 Sat; 12-3 Sun) in the garden to round off a visit. Don’t miss this hidden gem. As of late 2015, the pub has been sold by Enterprise Inns to the people who run the successful Witchwood in nearby Ashton. Renovations to the kitchen and beer garden are taking place.
