Visited recently when myself and friends were going to Stoodley Pike. Unfortunately it was snowing so we went for lunch at Hinchcliffe Arms. Food was lovely, homemade Steak a pie and Mash in front of an open fire. Well worth a visit!

We just had a delicious roast dinner here. There were 12 of us (6 adults, 6 kids) so we opted for the roast dinner platter which was absolutely ace. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this place. We will be back.

Lovely food and the staff are very welcoming.we had the mixed fish and the craggy egg for starters to be honest that was enough. Then we had a sandwich the food portions are large. But freshly made I would definitely go back
