THE OLD GLEN HOUSE
The perfect year-round venue
This dog-friendly country pub with dining is situated on the idyllic Baildon Moor, just minutes from the Shipley Glen Tramway.
It serves a range of cask beers, wines and freshly prepared home-cooked food. With the wood-burning stove roaring away in the winter, and the vast beer garden open on summer days, it’s the perfect venue all year around.
The Old Glen House also provides full function facilities, catering for birthdays, weddings, christenings or just a get-together with family and friends. Whether you call in after a walk (with or without a dog), a cycle ride, as a diner or drinker, you can always be assured of a warm welcome.
In the beginning …
The Old Glen House pub was originally Woodhead Farm (at the head or top of the woods). Shipley Glen was so-named by the Minister of the Bethel Chapel in Shipley. It properly consists of Bracken Hall Green and Bracken Hall Crag.
By the last quarter of the 19th century, Shipley Glen was the name that had captured people’s hearts. The buildings have seen many changes over the years, but one thing is certain; it still provides refreshments for passers-by, from the 19th-century drovers to the 21st-century day trippers.
Today The Old Glen House is a beautiful country pub serving home-cooked food; from a cheese and pickle sandwich to an 8oz-sirloin steak with all the trimmings. In the last year our homemade pies have created quite a stir in the region and now outsell every other dish. You can eat either in the bar area (with or without a dog) with the log fire or in the more refined candlelit dining room.
Current owners Ed and Louise are proud to have regenerated The Old Glen House into the flourishing country bar/eatery it is now. Ed says, “It has taken six long years to get this amazing venue back to its former glory. We have both worked hard and are now seeing that hard work pay off. We look forward to the next six years and wonder what they will bring. Please say ‘hello’ if you pop in. Even though I say so myself, our pies are amazing!”
