Biker-Friendly Cafes & Hangouts
Situated in the small village of Siddal, The Cross Keys holds residence in a 17th-century building and is a historic monument for the village itself. Current owners, Hugh and the team offer a warm welcome to everyone who passes through their door. If you happen to pop into The Cross Keys, you will also be greeted by the resident pooch, Poppy! Rumour has it, they offer a delicious Pork Pie, along with a variety of Real Ales and much more! If you are passing by after a long ride, why not ask if there is a room available, have a nice chill by the log fire and listen to the live music that The Cross Keys has to offer.
This place is a cafe by day and a bar by night (from Thursday – Sunday)! Based in the thriving village of Sowerby Bridge, Gabriel’s is a great little cafe for calling in for a bite to eat. With it being only little, however, we only recommend popping in as a small group. If you’re planning a ride to Halifax with your club, this place might not be the best! Nevertheless, we do highly recommend the place and the delicious treats they have to offer.
Of course, as previously mentioned, this cafe now doubles as a bar! If you happen to be stopping over during the weekend, head on over to ‘The Garden at Gabriel’s’. They have a huge selection of alcoholic refreshments, and they are introducing a nibbles menu very soon! Gabriel’s is overlooking the marina of Sowerby Bridge and the view looks absolutely delightful.
Back in the day, and I mean very far back in the day… in 1533 to be exact, this local pub was first built! The purpose then was an Alehouse and Farmhouse, so it hasn’t lost its roots entirely, which sounds great to us! Since then award-winning Old White Beare has grown a great reputation for the fantastic service provided by the staff of the Norwood Green establishment. Pop into the premises for a delicious meal and a nice refreshment. If you’re staying for the long-run, you’ll be glad to know that they have a selection of whiskies and over 40 wines on offer! If you go on a Friday, you might even catch the live music, and don’t forget to have a gander at some of their art pieces on the walls… some of them are for sale from local artists! The food served here is all freshly cooked to perfection, with all ingredients sourced locally.

Located in the rolling green Yorkshire countryside village of Holywell Green, The Rock Hotel is an excellent hotel. It has a great big car park located at the rear of the property with plenty of places for bikes! This place is also a local for those who live in the area, and with great food on offer, it’s easy to see why. The 17th-century building welcomes you with open arms with the heated log fire, which must get some use in the winter!
