Secretly Famous™ for…

Being family run for 34 years by Rushworths'

This family business is run by Jane, Colin, Sally & Lucy Rushworth and is first and foremost a place to eat. Weaver’s is a well established restaurant-with-rooms set on the cobbles in the heart of the village of Haworth and is now in its 32nd year with a large and loyal following.

This little Pennine village is full of history and was made famous as the hometown of the Bronte sisters, who lived behind this house! During the industrial revolution the village was inhabited with weavers who came to spin cotton. The establishment combines three Victorian shops and two weaver’s cottages, which have been turned into an inviting informal atmosphere with warm interiors, mood lighting and decorated with rich red walls, covered with art and mirrors.

Some of the renowned dishes include caramelised onion & leek tart with Yellison’s goat’s cheese and winter leaf salad served with their own treacle vinegar sauce as a starter. Main courses range from slow cooked Pennine lamb shrugged from the bone, ‘HOT POT’ potato, served with orange & redcurrant sauce and a hint of mint or pan fried breast of Goosnargh duck served with braised & buttered greens, rosti potato, toffee apple (not what you think!) and apple brandy sauce. To finish you off there's a selection of indulging homemade desserts, including sherry laced raspberry trifle or a choice of four Yorkshire cheeses from small specialist makers.

Offering an individual style of British regional cooking, they prepare traditional as well as fashionable dishes. Everything Jane and Colin serve they prepare in their own kitchen, combining regional classics with a modern twist and utilising only fresh and local ingredients wherever possible.

A choice of three rooms, decorated with warm colours, antique furniture and comfy beds. Views of the museum, church and moors or the traditional cobbled streets of the village. The rooms are all en-suite and include a full Yorkshire breakfast that consists of free range eggs, sausages and black puddings, local cured bacon, home baked bread and home produced conserves.
