    The Whitchaff was once an old coaching house, and can be found on the edge of Rawtenstall on the road to Edenfield and Bury. It offers panoramic views over the valley and this can be experienced whilst sitting in the beer garden at the rear of the property. The Whitchaff offers excellent bar snacks and meals. These can be enjoyed in the main lounge with its unique bric a brac, or in the separate restaurant which has a more contemporary feel. The bar is fully stocked with cask beers as well as continental lagers and a car park can be found at the side of the property.

    Looking down over Rawtenstall from its lofty position, the Whitchaff Inn is a distinctive sight on the Bury Road. Tall and narrow, with a steeply raked slate roof, the stone building dates from 1761. It’s been a pub for well over 100 years and used to be called the Hare & Hounds; the present unusual name, adopted in the 1970’s, is a combination of the shortened names of two of the owners of the day.

    Richard and Katy have been at the Whitchaff for over 14 years with a friendly greeting for one and all. There are a variety of cask conditioned Robinsons Ales as well as all major leading brands of lager.

    A former stable now houses the atmospheric restaurant, where the menu and daily specials offer upwards of 100 dishes, all of them home-cooked. Sizzling platters, stir-fries and black pudding are just some of the specialities, and the tasty Sunday Lunch offers particularly good value for money.
