Near Withens Clough we recommend stopping for refreshments at the The Hinchliffe Arms pub. There's great food and a nice outdoor seating area to relax in at this walker/cyclist friendly pub. You can find it on Church Bank Ln, Cragg Vale, HX7 5TA.
The Millers Bar in Brighouse is another fine option. There's a good menu and a lovely canalside beer garden to relax in on warmer days. From the garden you can also watch as climbers dare to risk the UKs tallest outdoor climbing wall, ROKTFACE which is located right next to the pub.It's a fine, award winning place and can be found at a postcode of HD6 1EB for your sat navs.
