Where you will find us...

The pub is a 40 minute stroll from Almscliffe Crag (bring your walking boots) and is only a short drive from RHS Harlow Carr. 


Car parking spaces are available but during popular sessions it may be necessary to park a short distance from the pub. If so, please be considerate towards our neighbours.
