In the moors near the Emley TV transmitter, this posh pub is a known destination and has been so for decades. The view of loyalists is that its “food and service are as good as ever – a bit pricey but well worth it for particularly good fish and shellfish and superb steaks”. And it actually avoided typical accusations of laurel-resting this year, but what was most striking about feedback was its limited volume.

It’s been “a staple in the locality for half a century” and fans of this “moorland destination” (near the Emley TV transmitter) say this posh pub is “well worth the effort of finding” for “solid” traditional cooking that’s “top drawer”. Even fans note that “it has become very pricey” over the years, however, and the impression is growing ever stronger that it’s “resting somewhat on its laurels” nowadays and risks becoming “pretentious”.

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”.
