Overlooking the Boothwood Reservoir in the wilderness of Rishworth Moor close to the Pennine Way, The Turnpike Inn is a wonderful country pub and restaurant with a rich and varied history. Dating back to the early 1800s when it was known as The Derby Inn, the building has been everything from a cocktail bar to a ‘house of ill repute’. The current owners however, have restored The Turnpike Inn to its former glory and then some, keeping original beams and brickwork, wood and flagstone flooring and stone walls but adding contemporary touches including a bespoke reclaimed Yorkshire stone bar. An exciting and innovative British menu is the perfect choice for The Turnpike Inn, a drop in for ramblers and tourists as well as a meeting place for locals of the surrounding towns and villages.
