A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

Situated in Todmorden, under Eagles Crag, The Staff of Life offers good food, great beers and 3 en-suite bed and breakfast rooms.

Open 7 days a week, we welcome everyone from large parties to people just wanting a quick spot of lunch. Being surrounded by the Pennines means muddy boots and dogs are also never a problem.

A place to wine, a place to dine

How it all came to be…

After having ‘The Staff’ in the 80’s, Tim and his wife Kate re-opened the pub in early 2010. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, offering a place for people to enjoy innovative food, quality drink and a welcoming atmosphere.

We wanted to create a place where people of all ages could come and experience good food. From family Sunday roasts to 7 course taster nights, we try and have a little bit for everyone.

Great Beer

Wide range of hand pulled ales, beers, ciders and spirits. As well as a special Gin Palace menu.

Three double en-suite bed and breakfast rooms. Available 7 days a week.

“My husband and I ate at the Staff of Life tonight for my birthday and the food was excellent. The specials were imaginative and very tasty. The walnut cheesecake was fantastic although I couldn’t finish it all despite a huge effort! The staff were very friendly and accommodating and our two border terriers were made welcome too, we’ll definitely be back.”
