Summary

Fresh from celebrating its 50th anniversary, this hill-top institution (near the Emley TV transmitter) is “just how a traditional pub should be” according to most reports. It’s become “so much more than just a pub with food” over the years, though, and – while “still a great favourite”“it’s not the cheapest” and can also appear a little “glitzy” or “corporate”.

Summary

“A windswept but lovely location” – high in the hills, near the Emley TV transmitter – sets the scene at this moor-top pub, which has been a well-known culinary destination for decades. It still provokes the odd accusation of “living off its reputation”, but most reports this year said it’s “as good as ever” with “solid cooking in huge portions”.

Summary

“Set high up on the hills” – near the Emley TV transmitter – “it can be wind-swept and bitter” at this renowned, moor-top inn “but when you go in it’s as snug as anyone could want”. “It’s trading on its past reputation”, though, nowadays – the food’s still “reliable”, but “not as good as it used to be”, and with “toppy bills”“you can get better at this price elsewhere”.
