We made a lunch stop here as we spotted a car park full of cars and people drinking outside. That looked a good sign so we drove into the carpark bagging the last available space.
The bar area was packed with people as were the two restaurants, but there was one remaining table....meant for us! We were ravenously hungry and from the large menu ordered haddock, chips and peas ... something that could be reasonably quickly prepared.
Whilst waiting, we noticed most people had chosen dishes of pies and curries that looked delicious. We didn’t have to wait long for our meals, and the food was piping hot and tasty. Service from a young waitress was excellent. She was obviously very busy but couldn’t have been more friendly and polite.
✨This pub, high on the Pennine Hills, was like a blast from the past for us as pubs like this, near to where we live, have long closed. It’s in a great spot and an obvious stop for walkers and there were people of all ages enjoying Saturday lunch.
What I really liked was the No Dog policy. There were dogs in the porch area but non inside! I personally detest having to eat my meal with a strange dog nearby....apart from special guide dogs, who I’m sure would be more than welcomed. So..........good pub, friendly service, good, homely food.....and panoramic views of miles of moorland....and prices were reasonable too. ✨✨✨✨
