Traditional Country Pub

Serving the best cask ales.

A place to socialise and make new friends.

Cask Mark

Alison & Paul have an establishment that is a real hub of the community, a place Worsthorne can be proud of. Customers travel from far and wide to sample the excellent range of real ales, especially from our local Worsthorne Brewery.

The pub is Cask Marque accredited and hosts various Camra social events. We have won the Burnley Area ‘Pub of the Year’ Award from CAMRA for 2013. Voted as Burnley’s Best Bar, December 2014 in Burnley Express, see here, and with our certificate.

A great range of lagers on draught including ‘Peroni’ only adds excellence to this lovely village pub.

Food served at weekends and bank holidays, and by prior arrangement for groups during the week.
