This is a very good little pub. Located just across the road from The Rodley Barge, with whom they hold a beer festival every August! As with all the local pubs, they offer a good selection of real ales and also serve some very good food! We have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed!

Daughter and I went for our dinner here on Boxing Day 2016. We'd booked for 2pm but were unable to get back for that time so they kindly pushed our booking back to 330pm. The food was gorgeous - I had Salmon and my daughter had the glazed ham. All food cooked to perfection. Thank you very much! Colette

We thought we would have lunch out and try tho Owl at Rowley as it wasn't too far and we hadn't been for years. The dining area was empty apart from another couple and the first thing I saw were pre printed menus on the tables offering 2 for £10 which said to me plastic food, as I call it.... More
