The pub is regarded for its quality and homemade food, particularly its carvery menu and also provides a wide range of beverages, from hand pulled ales to wine and spirits.
In addition to the pub and restaurant, the Stump Cross Inn features nine letting rooms for guests visiting the popular area, which draws tourists to its walking trails, natural beauty and “rich history”.
Owners, John and Claire Whitham have decided to sell the business, having owned and operated it for the last 12 years, in order to retire. Whitham said: “We have loved running the Stump Cross Inn since 2007 and the business has so much further potential. We have chosen to instruct Christie & Co on the leasehold sale of our business and look forward to engaging with prospective purchasers.”
Sam Ashton, business agent at Christie and Co, added: “I am delighted have been instructed by John and Claire to sell the leasehold of their fantastic pub in the heart of Shibden Valley. The pub is on a great sized site, with generous car parking, ample dining and bar space internally and a patio beer garden.”
