About Us

The owner, Kevin, has a proven track record in running successful businesses throughout the North of England and now prides himself on being able to offer a traditional family welcome at the Pied Bull, where he and his staff are committed to offering food, drink and accommodation of the highest quality.  

Recent, and continuing, refurbishments both inside and out now provide informal and attractive surroundings, ensuring a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re out with your friends, relatives or children, on business or pleasure, you’re sure to experience a pleasant, safe and enjoyable time with excellent cuisine, beers, wines, spirits, hot beverages and soft drinks available in the bar, restaurant or beer garden.

We have ample car parking at the front and rear making it ideal for cars and coach parties alike. We can cater for groups of all sizes, whether it’s a Wedding, Christening, Funeral, Anniversary, Birthday, Hen/Stag Party, Retirement, Raceday Gathering, Business Meeting, Conference or Training Seminar, we have the facilities and catering options available to suit a wide variety of needs. 

We are pleased to offer disabled access facilities, easy-access hotel rooms, a secure private beer garden and patio area, and a comfortable covered smoking area, together with a child-friendly environment where families are always welcome to join us.

Following the successful introduction of our first Traditional Cask Ale line, in 2008, we have now been able to steadily increase the number of products offered to our customers, to the extent that there are now often up to four such ales to choose from at any one point in time. The brands are continually rotated and usually include such popular names as JENNINGS CUMBERLAND, BLACK SHEEP, WELLS BOMBARDIER, DEUCHARS IPA, MARSTONS PEDIGREE, BATEMANS XB, YOUNGS PA, OLD SPECKLED HEN, RUDDLES COUNTY, TETLEY, BODDINGTONS, COURAGE DIRECTORS. We are also open to suggestions and requests from our customers as to other cask ales that they would like us to host and try here.

Since November 2009, we have been proudly awarded a CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE every year from the Independent Inspection Organisation, CASK MARQUE. This is in recognition of our quality cellar standards which ensure that we continue to serve our customers with the finest quality Traditional Cask Ales at the precise temperature and with the correct appearance, aroma and taste for that optimum drinking experience.
