The Moorcock Inn is at the foot of many 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.
Our 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 list focusing on delicious local craft and Belgian beers.
Is a cosy, traditional freehouse, with oak beams and wood-burning stoves. It offers a menu of seasonal plates cooked over charcoal- 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.
We serve natural wines and local and Belgian beers across bottles, cans, casks and kegs.
Our pub menu can also be enjoyed outdoors, along with a view of the sunset over the Ryburn Valley.

There have been some trials and tribulations with our polytunnel, but on its third resurrection, we're expecting tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, tomatilloes, cucumbers and physalis later in the year.
Currently growing outdoors are the moment are lots of leafy greens, beets, parsley root, celery, Brussels sprouts, lettuces, kohlrabi, nasturtium and borage flowers, Jerusalem and globe artichokes.
About to be transplanted outside are Aztec broccoli, lots of courgettes and squash varieties and lots of herbs.
