The Moorcock Inn is at the foot of 250 acres of productive moorland, providing plenty of plants, berries, mushrooms and game. Our 2-acre plot is being developed to provide an organic kitchen garden, providing the foundations of our pub & restaurant menus- with the best of Yorkshire produce supplying the rest. Both the pub and restaurant menus are written with the seasons and cooked over fire.

‚ÄčOur wine list focuses on natural wines from small producers. We offer a continually changing selection by the glass and carafe- featuring both classic and more quirky styles. Alongside our draught beers, we also have a local and world bottled selection, particularly featuring traditional Belgian styles- some of which are rare, vintage and aged.

The Pub Is a cosy, traditional freehouse, with oak beams and wood-burning stoves. It offers a menu of seasonal plates cooked over charcoal, along with house-made charcuterie and aged cheeses- accompanied by great drinks. It’s the perfect place to stop by for a quick pint and a snack, or to settle in by the fire for dinner and wine. In addition to our wine and beer selections, there is a spirits list based on Yorkshire distilleries, and a seasonal cocktail list. Our pub menu can also be enjoyed outdoors, with blankets and warming fires, and a view of the sunset over the Ryburn Valley. The Calderdale Way walking route passes by us, just over 200 metres away,

The restaurant offers a daily set menu consisting of multiple courses, served in a relaxed, farmhouse-like atmosphere. Some courses are served as individual plates, at other times, several dishes are served together. While the pub menu focuses on tasty snacks and small plates that are great to have alongside drinks, the restaurant menu highlights traditional homesteading techniques, cooking over fire, preservation techniques and the sourcing of local, seasonal and wild ingredients. It’s the place where we strictly use the produce around us and the ingredients we are most proud of.

Accessibility Information

There is step-free access to the building via the front door of the pub and it is fine for a car to stop for a shorter time outside this door, although the car park is at the rear of the building.

There is a small step into the restaurant- about 3-4 inches. There is a step down into the main bar area. If a seat near the entrance to the restaurant area would help, please do let us know.

We unfortunately do not have disabled toilets, although we do have one spacious toilet cubicle, which some wheelchair users have used, although I am afraid we do not have additional facilities such as handrails.
