Enjoy a drink with friends
For almost 2 centuries Honleyers and comer-inners alike have enjoyed a pint or two at The Allied public house on Church Street. The Allied was first granted a licence in 1854. Today it retains the community feel of a traditional British pub, offering a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike.
Landlady, Carron Blagbrough, managed The Allied before taking on the business in 2012. Under Carron’s watch, The Allied has remained a firm favourite and is well known for providing ‘great ale at a great price’.
With a roaring fire in winter and a pleasant courtyard beer garden that’s well used in the summer months, The Allied is one of those dog-friendly pubs where you can feel comfortable no matter who you are or what you do.
“I love the atmosphere we have here at The Allied, it’s genuinely a friendly, welcoming, pub. Our regulars include people from all walks of life. The Allied is definitely a community pub,” said Carron.
There’s a real community spirit about The Allied. It hosts regular pub quizzes and is home to a pool team and a darts team that play in local leagues. They also have Sky Sports and BT Sports so that sports enthusiasts need never miss a match.
The pub also has a keen interest in charity, raising thousands of pounds each year for good causes. They’re helped by Honley Hikers and Froth Blowers, a group of regulars who raise money on their walking trips. Raffles, bun sales and other fundraising ideas have added up to more than £12,000 in recent years.
Each year, a different charity benefits from their amazing fundraising efforts. The chosen charity of the year is one that is always close to the heart of The Allied’s team or regulars.
A great pint
As a traditional pub, with a long history, Carron is proud of the fact that at The Allied they ‘serve a good pint’.
As well as a variety of lagers and bitters, they also serve real ale, and a range of other stiff and soft drinks. Although food isn’t on the menu, there’s always a packet of crisps or bag of nuts to keep you going.
Next time you’re passing, drop into The Allied for a refreshing drink and a pleasant chat with Carron!
