Visit the historic town of Keighley


The Boltmakers Arms has been at the heart of the picturesque town of Keighley for many years. As the smallest pub in Keighley, we are proud to sell prize-winning ales from Timothy Taylor as well as many other exceptional guest ales.


Keighley boasts several popular sights and activities. From the iconic railway station, from which you can take a ride through Bronte Country and soak up the idyllic scenery, to the Timothy Taylor Brewery, Keighley is full of interesting history.


Timothy Taylor Brewery

Serving beer


Timothy Taylor began brewing beers in Cook Lane in 1858. He built a bigger brewery at Knowle Spring in Keighley in 1863, where it has remained ever since in the Taylor family name.


The unique taste of Timothy Taylor ale is achieved by a passion for the brewing process combined with usage of only the finest natural ingredients. This formula has allowed the brewery to survive as the last independent brewery of its type in West Yorkshire. Which they intend to do for years to come.


Come and visit us today at 117 East Parade and soak up the culture of Keighley from the vantage point of The Boltmakers Arms.
