ROB Camra left this review about The Moorcock Inn

Fine old coaching inn on the way out and up (a lot of up) from Littleborough with a somewhat chequered past. In the 70's/80's it was a disco bar and was where I had my first ever pint of Oranjeboom (I've got older and wiser since then). These days it has a large restaurant area with a separate and much smaller pub part at the front. It's a very comfortable pub with 3 handpumps usually selling Timothy Taylors Landlord and a couple of guest ales, one of which is often from Pictish. Has a massive wooden terrace at the back with a fantastic view over the local moorland. It's great during summer (which only lasts about 10 days up here). You pretty much have to drive or get a taxi, but it's worth it.
