We arrived on a Bank Holiday evening as we were passing - we hadn't booked (and the car park was full - but we took our chance)..... The managerial staff we're very friendly, and whilst busy, they had one table free (due to an earlier no-show). Whilst the original booking was for a party of 6, the two of us... More

Visited several times in the past few years. A smart place, used to be very busy but was almost empty on the Saturday lunchtime we visited. Interesting menu committed to local suppliers. We ordered fish and chips and cheese and onion pie, to be advised of a 30 minute wait. Nice way to obtain sales of expensive starters and more... More

This was our second visit to a Ribble Valley Inn Group, the previous one being the Clog and Billycock. The same group of five had lunch here and found it to be on very similar lines to our previous experience. The location is excellent, good parking and again a modern, spacious bright and airy Inn.
