Lovely location with superb views of the surrounding area. Great for the children to play and dogs are welcome too! Everyone had a lovely meal with more than generous servings. Would highly recommend for a real taste of Lancashire.

Really good for families, excellent play area, large outdoor and under cover eating area for the better weather. Really good food at reasonable prices, and the staff are helpful and friendly. Book if you want to eat indoors at the weekends. Highly recommend.

What could be nicer than a bracing swim at Gaddings then home made pies at the friendly Shepherds Rest Inn. We each managed to polish off a whole plateful despite the generous size. Golden light pastry, rich savoury filling, plenty of gravy, mushy peas and chips - some of the best pies we've ever eaten. Thank you.

Eaten here quite a few times. Food is always good with great views over the valleys. Advisable to book as does get busy. Friendly welcoming staff.

I had a coffee and stood at the bar where the Monday club of which I was a member used to drink. A... More

The welcome was great but unfortunately the food did not match. I had a salad that alleged to come with pesto drizzle, sun-dried toms and olives. What actually came was half a jar of pesto dumped on a poor excuse for a salad (unless you really, really like onion), no toms or olives, these were provided when I pointed out... More
