Old Yorkshire drovers’ inn that's a destination for fine dining

High on the bleak Pennine moors, this old drovers’ inn has been a bit of a beacon for fine pub dining for forty years. It’s a breezy drive to get here – and you know you’re close when the soaring, 1,000-foot-high Emley Moor transmitter mast fills your windscreen. The inn must have been a welcome sight for wayfarers in days gone by, though the car park tends to be full now with intrepid travellers from nearby Huddersfield or those having made the ten-minute detour off the M1. It has a handful of nicely furnished guest rooms all with en-suite bathrooms, Freeview TVs and wifi, while food-wise it's very much a Sunday lunch, Mother’s Day, special occasion kind of place, with a traditional interior, a restaurant vibe and a tempting menu that’s ‘Modern Yorkshire’ for the want of a better phrase. It's a lovely place to stay and to eat, and if it’s a half-decent day you can plonk yourself outside with a pint and gaze across some of Yorkshire’s most remote moorland.



Open all year.


Double rooms from £110 a night, including breakfast. Single rooms from £55 a night.
