Rishworth Beer Guide: Your Rishworth guide to beer, beer bars, breweries and brewpubs

Latest reviews from Rishworth

“Located right next to the Booth Wood Reservoir in a lonely spot by the moor facing the highest point of the UK’s motorway system as it splits carriageways around Stott Hall Farm. This stone brick building is a beautiful place to either drink, dine or stay depending on your reason to come here and a worthy couple of minutes drive away from Junction 22 if you are passing on the M62 and have time to stop off. The decor is very plush and comfortable with some great framed pictures and photos on every wall. The reception area greets you first with the bar immediately to the left, there’s also a small lounge area to its right with a conference and events room beyond this. If the weather is good there’s plenty of outdoor seating out front and at its side which catch the sun all day long, the only downside being the constant hum coming from the motorway across the other side of the reservoir. JW Lees ales are available at the bar including the current seasonal brew, on three pumps and there’s some ordinary lager and cider options available too. Has a large car park and is dog friendly.“

“On the winding road down towards Ripponden from the very desolate Junction 22 of the M62, this pub on a bend in the road offers a fine atmosphere in a stone building with stone floors but a mix of modern and traditional fixtures and fittings in design that certainly works. The wood burning fires are attractive and there’s sofas and leather seats to relax on if your just here for a drink. There’s three rooms to choose from, all open to each other with the dining side on the right and the bar in the middle section and the food is pretty decent. There’s five hand pumps with at least four of these regularly rotating and a number of Holts brews are available too - mostly in keg. You can park on the road but there’s a small car park on the pubs right hand side with several picnic tables at its front and on an elevated area to its left.“
