Originally opened in 1822 as The Derby Inn, the building has seen many facelifts. It has always been a popular spot for both Yorkshire and Lancashire folk and has been used as a halfway house for the two counties ever since.
February 2013 re-launch, new lounge and menu, packed full of local, freshly sourced produce.
The interior design has a contemporary theme but with original features restored and emphasised. New menu - enjoy imaginative and mouth-watering dishes created by our team of chefs, there's plenty to make you return to The Turnpike time and time again. We cater for special occasions, weddings, parties, gatherings of family and friends, or an afternoon business meeting. Whether you're looking for traditional hearty local fayre or palette-enticing, original and inventive dishes, we aim to offer something for everyone.
We are truly delighted to be the most recent custodians of this iconic location. We feel we have honoured its history and originality so far and hope we will be part of its future for a very long time to come.
On behalf of all the staff here at the Turnpike, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Wine And Dine At The Turnpike Inn
Our selection of Specials changes daily, as do many of our vegetarian dishes. During the winter months we serve the best meat and game that the local area has to offer along with fresh fish dishes that are renown amongst our regular clientele and beyond.
Along with sandwiches and paninis, salads, a children's menu and a superb homemade selection of desserts crafted by our team under the guidance of our Pastry Chef, we cater for all tastes. We have a dazzling array of steaks which have been selected from local farms and hung for a minimum of 28 days.
We also help our customers kick-start the day with breakfast from 9 am till Midday (until 11 am on a Sunday) with all dishes cooked to order, and available at superb prices.
Every Friday, our kitchen team creates special seafood dishes using the finest ingredients that day, sourced from local fishmonger Paul Phillips. Every Saturday, our locally reared Broster's steaks are even more special with our tempting offer of 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for only £29.95.
And don't forget our corker of a Sunday Menu! We serve a la carte alongside our famous carvery with its selection of perfectly roasted, exquisite cuts of locally sourced meats, fresh Yorkshire puddings, steamed and roasted seasonal vegetables.
