Located at the confluence of 5 roads - hence ‘The Junction’ - we are in the heart of Denshaw, a village in Saddleworth amongst the South Pennines.

Originally built as a coach house for travellers in 1795, The Junction has served as an inn for over 200 years - and we are delighted to carry on in it’s traditional purpose.

Sorry - Adults Only after 6pm.

Feel free to pop in for a coffee! We offer a range of Teas, Coffees or Hot Chocolate!  Take away option also available. Delicious freshly ground coffee from our newly-installed machine  including Latte, Mocha, Cappuccino & many more!

One thing we do at The Junction is to offer an ‘Adults Only’ dining option. Young Kids are welcome to dine with us up to 6.oopm - but no later. Evening dining is strictly for the grown ups. Family dining is available all day for most of the week and at weekends.   Read more…

Walkers, ramblers, doggies & organised treks welcome…


…to all those who have waited patiently during our busy periods. We are a family-run business which usually means there’s just the three of us to serve and cook (and wash-up!)…sometimes leading to delays. We don’t claim to be a restaurant so we don’t offer a rash of serving staff and meals are usually served on a first come - first served basis. Larger bookings have been declined in order to ensure quality of product and service.
It would appear that some customers will not use our facilities because we have too many rules. Mmm. We keep the place clean, safe and pleasant and ensure that no-one adversely affects the enjoyment of others. The rules stay. No apologies.
Coming soon! We’re opening a new ‘Coffee Stop’! An alcohol-free room to enjoy a hot drink and snack. Ideal for a chin-wag or pit stop!
