We are proud of the excellent service we provide here at The Old Sun. The busy pub atmosphere offers a great welcome with a vast range of lagers ciders and spirits as well as cask ales all at reasonable prices. Our menu offers freshly prepared local produce and we serve food daily with Sunday roasts from as little as £6.00. br / br / br / br / Our Hotel is the closest to the moors of all Haworth s hotels just a few minutes from Penistone Hill and from there clearly marked footpaths lead you across to the Bront Falls Top Withens (Wuthering Heights) and beyond. br / br / br / br / We are also close to all of the major attractions of Haworth village: The Bronte Parsonage Museum The Parish Church Schoolrooms Tourist Information Centre Apothecary and the historic cobbles of Main Street with all its quaint shops and tea rooms. br / br / br / br / We are approximately 200 metres from the world-famous Bronte Parsonage Museum and the famous walk to the Bronte Bridge a Grade II listed site comes very close to us. Haworth Station another Grade II listed building on the excellent Keighley and Worth Valley Railway featuring steam locomotives daily (best known for The Railway Children film with Jenny Agutter and Yanks with Richard Gere) is close by. br / br / br / br / Links to the eerie past still linger on in Haworth. On some old buildings strange stone faces known as Archaic stone heads stare out onto the street. They look like ancient Celtic stone heads but historical researcher John Billingsley says they were a continuing folk magic custom that experienced a rebirth of popularity in the area in the 17th and 19th centuries. br / br / br / br / They were used to ward off evil and in 1754 a head was placed on the wall of The Old Sun Inn to stop a haunting. It was later moved to over the front door and it is said to have worked. Whether you believe it or not if you have any sort of curiosity about the supernatural it is an interesting take on the building and well worth a visit to experience the atmosphere of this mythical legend.
