The village pub, The Stag, stands at the heart of the village, overlooking the green. It was built in 1703, with solid oak beams. It serves the residents well and is a welcome watering hole for the many walkers passing through the village as they come down from the Pennine Fells. It’s an old-fashioned country pub, with a cast-iron range to warm the bar, an open fireplace in the smaller lounge, and a comfortable dining room providing a wide choice of meals. The Stag is recognised by CAMRA and listed in the Good Beer Guide. A fine choice of ales includes the Black Sheep, Boddingtons Bitter, Castle Eden and Flowers IPA. There are also over 30 Malt Whiskies to tempt your palate. On a warm summers evening, take a relaxing drink in the beer garden as the sun slowly sets against the backdrop of the Pennine Hills.
When it’s cold outside you can be sure of a crackling fire to welcome you into the cosy atmosphere of the bar.
