Relish the Taste of Yorkshire Print
Pie Club History

Nestled in a quiet corner of the Ripponden Conservation area by the ancient pack-horse bridge is possibly one of Yorkshire's best kept secrets. This lovely, low slung, cruck framed, crazy angled, cobbled fronted, whitewashed little pub certainly packs a big punch.

Three separate bar areas furnished with antique furniture and a few well chosen prints create a homely atmosphere. The Old Bridge Inn is featured in many independent food and pub guides. Owners Tim and Lindsay Eaton Walker are passionate in maintaining the authenticity of their inn.

You won't find muzac and gaming machines here. Only ales from independent brewers are served, and genuine imported lagers. A good selection of wines, spirits, aperitifs and soft drinks is always available. Only home cooked food is served, seasonal and locally sourced where possible by Lindsay and the latest addition to the team, Yvonne Lumb (a talented young chef who can create mouth watering dishes at the drop of a hat).

Lindsey P and Jenny continue to prepare the ever popular weekday salad and cold meats carvery lunch as popular now as it was in 1963 Booking definitely advisable. Only five miles from the M62, J22, the Bridge can take some finding to the uninitiated, but once found, most folks just keep coming back.
