We also met the chef who seemed kean and engaging. Had 3 courses each, all different but i tasted all 6. All tasted... read more

My favourite pub in my pretty village of Ribchester. Shame more locals don't frequent it. Try the Sunday lunch..I promise you won't need to eat till Mon b'fast,! As I live in Ribchester am very proud to be associated with the White Bull..and am supporting Rick and team. Worth a visit.

Just fab! Lovely pub, lovely room, lovely food, lovely people! I only stayed one night but wish I could stay longer, if I was this way again I would come earlier and stay later just to put a few nights in here. I recommend the restaurant as a stand alone venue by for the price treat yourself and stay over!... More

This is a superb real Old English Pub with food to die for. Help yourself to freshly baked bread. There is a varied menu and the service is excellent

Called in for lunch on Bank a holiday weekend. A lovely setting with excellent food. Nice garden at the back and you can eat in the bar area or in a more formal dining room.
