West Yorkshire,


The pub is located in a beautiful setting alongside with the Aire & Calder canal.

Forming part of the Trans Pennine Trail we provide drinks, light refreshments and main meals to many walkers, cyclists, local people and visitors from afar.

We were voted Punch Managed Pub of the Year 2007/2008 & 2008/2009 from over 2000 punch managed pubs and were voted best Pub in Bloom 2007 by Wakefield Council.

We provide great pub food based on a 2 for 1 basis, which means you only pay for the dearest meal and the second meal is FREE!.

Dining areas are available inside and out (depending on weather). The restaurant can cater for 175 people and outside caters for another 80 people.

The seperate Wacky Warehouse provides a great place for the young ones to burn off energy and also provides coffee and snacks.

We have alot of visitors to the famous Stanley Ferry Aquaduct on which the Sydney Harbour Bridge was designed. Overall a great day out and a great experience.
