Front elevation of the Hargreaves Arms at Colne. This is a fantastic pub with the most convivial of Landladies. Nothing was too much trouble and we thoroughly recommend this pub as the perfect base for your tours of both Lancashire and Yorkshire.
Side elevation and main view of the pub as one approaches from the west - from Lancashire, God's county!.
Pub sign. 'Free House' does not, sadly, mean that the drinks are free. It means that the Licensee has the opportunity to serve a range of beers and not just those of one specific brewery.
The main pub sign showing what would appear to be the family coat of arms of the Hargreaves family
A close-up shot of the Hargreaves crest on the pub sign.
This is a brief history of the pub and it's Landlords. It was not too easy to photograph so if you click HERE a window will open which contains a full transcript of the text.
The bar and lounge area from the font door. Cathy, a very reluctant model - "I haven't combed my hair!", is in the distance.
The residents lounge area and the perfect place to wind down after a day touring the hills and dales of either Lancashire (preferred) or Yorkshire (if you must!)
The 'business end' of the pub - the bar. An excellent range of beers (Tetleys happening to be my favourite beer even though it is brewed in Yorkshire!) and lagers. Everything that you might want, no matter how expansive your palette.

A view of the dining room, sadly somewhat restricted due to the inadequacies of the camera lens (or cameraman)! The food served in this pub is quite exceptional and also very good value. Both Cathy and myself enjoyed the most splendid of lunches here on a warm sunny day - bliss!
Two speciality beers. Moorhouses bitter is a very nice, 'nutty' tasting beer. Black cat is the most wonderful dark beer, almost a 'mild' beer and can be thoroughly recommended. Of course I had to try both ales on your behalf!
