“Still as good as ever!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

My wife & I took some more friends (3) to the Newdrop for Sunday lunch (£17.95 for 3 courses plus coffee). We all really enjoyed dining in the newly refurbished dining room & diners bar with the log burning stove. The food was excellent with attentive but not intrusive service. We were fortunate to have a table by a window overlooking the Ribble valley with a view extending to the snow-capped Rossendale moorland.
We will all be returning soon to experience the value, food & service of the Newdrop.

“Excellent food, good service, some modernisation needed in main dining room.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This Inn offers bar and restaurant meals. It is a little off the beaten track but well worth the journey as food quality is excellent with a strong menu. Unlike many restaurants the deserts are high quality. The main dinning room, cutlery and crockery need dragging into the 21st century. That said the taste and quality of the food more than make up for it. Beautiful views on a clear day.

Century, the gold curtains and turkey red carpet have all gone , we now have a lovely contemporary dining room, which looks amazing- please come back and take a look, you will be pleasantly surprised.

“Great food, great hosts.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

After visiting the new drop tonight at short notice, we arrived in the snow. Sue and John had a warm welcome,as usual, first impressions are a big thing for me and its always a pleasant welcome here. Food was really good the steak was really tasty, we have a family and take them out with us, they are always included in conversation with the staff which makes them feel special too. Puddings homemade, absolutely lovely. All round great night fab food fab service keep it up.
