The Wuthering Heights basks in January sunshine, January 2019Wuthering Heights achives Highest Award!

Nestled deep in the Worth Valley and in the midst of the little village of Stanbury is a public house known as the Wuthering Heights. A pub since 1763 and originally named the Cross Inn, it was renovated during the 1980s and re-named in response to the growing tourist trade. Visitors to nearby Haworth, attracted by the popularity of the Brontë sisters and the famous moorland also enjoy the warm hospitality of the Wuthering Heights Inn. An inviting multi-roomed stone building, Nicci, Darren and their team are on-hand to welcome you. The cenral bar boasts four handpumps with two offering regular beers, Theakston Best Bitter and Moorhouse‘s White Witch. The others host an ever-changing selection of guest beers, one of which is almost always dark in style and all are sourced from Yorkshire and Lancashire. Pump clips from the numerous guest ales adorn the bar area.

Wuthering Heights Beer GardenTraditionally and tastefully decorated, old photos and Brontë themed images adorn the walls. Stoves with roaring fires will greet you during the grey Yorkshire winter. There is a cosy room cum dining area to the right of the main bar area and a larger room to the left which is used by diners, groups and can also be booked for events or meetings. Service is efficient and friendly and if you sit at the bar, the locals will inevitably involve you in their diverse conversations! Alternatively, come along and join in the Thursday night quiz.There‘s a pleasant outdoor seated area on the car park side of the pub and a beer garden at the back with stunning views of the Worth Valley.

Locally sourced, home-cooked food is available from Nicci‘s kitchen, daily at lunchtime plus evening meals are served on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The menus include vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. Accommodation at the rear of the pub comes in the form of tent pitches and two “glamping” huts (named Emily and Charlotte) with wonderful views of the moors and the resident sheep.
