Facilities for walkers

Food and drink
Hebden Bridge has a very wide selection of cafes (17 at the last count), restaurants (from Bistro to fine dining), take aways (Indian, Chinese and italian) and pubs – most of which provide food. Most of these food outlets will have a Walkers are Welcome sign, so muddy boots shouldn’t be a problem.

There are several micro breweries around and most pubs you go to will have a good range of guest beers and ciders (BLM).

You can see some of the variety of places to eat and drink on our local Dining Guide website.

There are also a good selection of supermarkets and great speciality food shops to replenish your supplies (but let that prevent you from visiting Mays shop shortly after you rejoin the Pennine Way).

Information Sources
