This 16th-Century Pub Walk In Bronte Country Is A Literary Dream

This 16th-Century Pub Walk In Bronte Country Is A Literary Dream

When it comes to spots in Yorkshire, you don’t get much more iconic than the idyllic village of Haworth. Known for being the home to the Bronte sisters, this Haworth pub walk in the West Yorkshire moorland is the perfect quick hike to work up an appetite.

The Bronte novels are a part of the village now, and The Black Bull pub is just as iconic as the literary duo who put the old-fashioned village on the map.

The pub sits at the crest of the steep village centre, overlooking the cobbled streets just a stone’s throw from the parsonage – it’s impossible not to visit the public house on a visit to the West Yorkshire village.

Dating back to the 16th Century, its interior feels like you’re stepping back in time with wood beams and roaring fire and the choice of ales make the pilgrimage to the pub well worth the wait.

The food at the Black Bull is just as impressive as the ales with a selection of pub classics such as fish & chips, the Black Bull burger, an open steak sandwich, risotto, and more. Hearty grub ready to fill you up after a trek on the windy moors

Keep on going through a gate onto open fields. Once you’ve crossed the field and reached the road head left forking left after 50 yards down to Cemetary Road where you should walk on the right-hand verge footpath and then turn left opposite the lay-by near the cemetery on a signposted track.
