The Nook

The Nook Pub has been owned and run by the Roberts family for nearly 50 years, the Nook has been a real ale haven and has enjoyed regular entry to The CAMRA Good Beer Guide throughout this period. The pub has two beer festivals per year and regularly contributes to the numerous festivals in Holmfirth. The pub is well known locally and further afield for its individuality and character.

The Brewhouse

In 2008 construction began on a plot of land to the rear of The Nook to become its Brewhouse. The Brewhouse is a 5 barrel plant built in a tower design in line with more traditional methods of brewing.

The Brewhouse aims to be as environmentally sustainable as possible with the tower design utilising gravity to assist the transfer of product from one stage to the next and reusing thermal energy wherever possible. The Brewhouse attempts to source local ingredients and use local suppliers whenever possible.

The Tap House, Bar and Restaurant

The Tap House opened in 2014 and is a relaxed and casual bar and restaurant. Product focus is on beers and real ales from The Nook Brewhouse as well as catering for larger functions and contributing to numerous festivals in Holmfirth.
