Welcome to The Jacobs Well, Honley

Believe it or not, Jacobs Well public house has been going strong since 1892. Still recognisable from old photos, the pub melds the charm and character of a period building, with 21st century living. In the main bar area there’s a cosy traditional open fire while wooden beams decorate the restaurant area, which leads to a new, wooden-fronted gin bar.

Today, the Jacobs Well is run by Amanda, who took over in 2018 with her late husband, Richard. Being a highly-trained chef, it was originally Richard’s idea to run the Jacobs Well and Amanda was soon onboard. Indeed, when the couple married in 2019, naturally they chose the Jacobs Well for their wedding reception.

They introduced the gin bar and have also renovated the fantastic, tiered beer garden, and added an outside bar.  It’s the perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy a refreshing drink or tuck into a tasty meal, while enjoying the views over the valley towards Castle Hill.

There’s a friendly welcome waiting for you at the Jacobs whether you’re just calling in for a drink, a meal or to collect your takeaway.
