371 BURY ROAD
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 previously 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. The Whitchaff can be found on the edge of Rawtenstall on the road to Edenfield and Bury. Once an old coaching house the pub offers panoramic views over the valley which can be experienced whilst sitting in the beer garden at the rear of the property.
There is the main lounge with its unique bric a brac, and a former stable now houses the separate atmospheric restaurant which has a more contemporary feel. There is a spacious fully equipped catering kitchen, a car park can be found at the side of the property and a beer garden to the rear with panoramic views over the valley.
