Food & Drink



During your visit to the Worth Valley you will need to stop and have some refreshments and you really will be spoiled for choice. There are lots of welcoming pubs, comfortable cafes and award winning restaurants in Haworth, Keighley and Brontë Country.

Haworth has an amazing selection of places to eat which includes the AA Rosette awarded Ashmount Country House, or step back in time and visit one of the 300 year old coaching inns throughout Brontë Country. There is always somewhere for you to sample traditional Yorkshire produce locally sourced and prepared.

Oakworth and Oxenhope have local pubs serving good honest ‘pub grub’ throughout the day

Keighley in contrast offers you the chance to explore a world of culinary delights with a wide range of cuisines from around the world. There is Asian cuisine from Indian to Thai, or have a taste of Europe with Italian to Turkish.

If you are looking for a special treat and unique experience the the splendour of Pullman travel on the Keighley Worth Valley Railway won’t disappoint. Run on selected weekends throughout the year we offer Afternoon Teas in the tradition of the best in English afternoon tea. You will board the train and be greeted with fresh flowers and starched linen. Then you will travel through the magnificent countryside and be served a delicious afternoon tea with freshly made sandwiches and cakes. Booking in advance is essential. (Please note due to difficulties with our kitchen car this may not operate during 2018)

Throughout the summer months we also operate the less formal, but equally well loved by its patrons, The Haworth Haddock. Two round trips of the branch whilst being served traditional Yorkshire Fish & Chips with the opportunity to sample the on-board real-ales for which the Railway has become nationally renowned.

In the Summer months you can enjoy cream teas served on-board our weekday trains. This is a walk on service and pre-booking is not required.

If you want to try some of the more traditional local cuisine then there is also a wide selection of pubs and cafes serving locally produced Yorkshire dishes. Whatever you prefer, you will have plenty of choice throughout the Worth Valley.
