The history of The Sovereign goes back over 160 years to the reign of King George IV when a local entrepreneur, Seth Senior built a brewery on the site in 1829. Legend has it the business was started with a borrowed sovereign and many believe that in commemoration of its origins, a gold coin is still buried somewhere on the premises.
The Sovereign is at the edge of the beautiful Peak District. There are pleasant trails from the pub into Shepley which link to the Kirklees Way. The Dearne Way is only a few hundred yards from the inn.
