Community pub with big range of own-brew beers at unbeatable bargain prices and tasty food; children very welcome

The big range of own-brewed ales and incredible value food are what draw customers to this ancient pub ? set all alone by an isolated church on a steep moorland slope. The big, unspoilt, L-shaped main bar has a cheerful, friendly atmosphere, high beams and some stripped stone, settles, pews, a good individual mix of chairs, lots of attractive prints, staffordshire and other china on a high delft shelf, jugs, brasses and so forth. They keep up to 11 of their own Saddleworth beers - though, if the water levels from the spring aren't high enough for brewing, they bring in guests such as Black Sheep and Copper Dragon. Some of their own seasonal ales are named after the licensee's children, only appearing around their birthdays; two home-brewed lagers on tap too. TV (for sporting events) and unobtrusive background music. A conservatory opens on to the terrace. The local bellringers arrive on Wednesdays to practise with a set of handbells kept here, and anyone can join the morris dancing on Thursdays. Children enjoy all the animals, including rabbits, chickens, dogs, ducks, geese, alpacas, horses, 14 peacocks in the next-door field and some cats that live in an adjacent barn; dogs are made to feel very welcome.
