The Sovereign, a country pub in Huddersfield

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

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.

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.

Charming country pubs in lovely locations

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.

Whether you’re out walking your dog or just exploring the local area, there’s always plenty to do around The Sovereign.
