The Foxglove, a country pub in Huddersfield

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you. 

For nearly 20 years The Foxglove has been a staple of Kirkburton, providing people with an authentic country pub experience. Built around 1864, it was originally known as the Railway Junction Inn due to the anticipation of a proposal in 1864 to construct a railway extension from Barnsley to a junction with the London and North West Railway.

In 2000 it was renamed as The Foxglove having previously been renamed The Three Owls.

Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the great range of cask ales, wines and spirits in the bar.

We also have accommodation available if you feel like extending your stay with us — our rustic rooms are perfect if you fancy a country escape.

Whether you are planning a dinner with friends, Sunday lunch with family, or want to bask in our stunning garden after a long walk with your four-legged friend, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
