See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Moorland pub dating back to 1721, located on the edge of Saddleworth with great views over the Manchester conurbation. Traditionally furnished in dark wood the pub has two rooms predominantly used for dining, and a comfortable bar area. It is very food-orientated with locally sourced ingredients such as beef much in evidence. Reputedly haunted with local girl Eliza Jane Mackey making occasional visits – she drowned in a nearby well in 1906 following “ Suicide while of unsound mind” although other spirits available here are much more predictable! In addition to a regular beer from Thwaites, 1 or 2 guests from the extensive Marston’s range.
