The Sirloin Restaurant & Pub A centuries-old coaching inn situated just a minute's walk from the medieval castle at Hoghton Tower. It was here, legend has it, that King James I knighted a loin of beef he had enjoyed and in remembrance of the event a pub within the parish was renamed the Sirloin Inn.
