The Pendle Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Barley B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 13, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Pendle Inn in mid May. We stayed in one of the cottages at the back of the pub. This is the second time we have stayed here and the accommodation is very clean and homely. It is a super base for exploring the area, right at the base of Pendle Hill. There is a good choice of wine and real ales and the food is fantastic. Good home cooked meals at reasonable prices. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be coming back.

Lady friend and self had 2 night stay in one of the "cottages" attached to the pub.Went on a special deal which really was good value and we did enjoy our stay.The pub bar area deals with walkers and muddy boots so its rather dull,worn appearance is not altogether surprising. The conservatory dining room is a complete contrast - light ,clean and pleasant. The menu and food were superb, the "specials" also looked good. On a Living Social deal so it was extra good value, but I would not have minded paying the full price for the food, it was so good.The car park filled in no time in the evening indicating the Pendle has a great reputation locally. The holiday cottage was a disappointment.Bedroom,clean,adequate for simply sleeping.No hanging space for clothes,bathroom downstairs on ground floor, compact but adequate with excellent shower and cubicle.The lounge was dull, some bulbs out/missing.The faux leather settee was beginning to collapse and it was difficult not to slide off. No fire or fireplace,just a radiator.Flooring was vinyl-imitation wood- but as dogs are welcomed that is probably best to avoid dog hairs on furniture. Only cooking facility apart from kettle and toaster was a mini oven with two rings on top and the frying pan ,no longer non-stick,was slightly rusty.TV old.
Despite the above criticisms we came away happy with our stay, but be warned- the cottages are tiny and only suitable as a base, do not imagine a rustic home with cosy fireplace and comfortable armchairs where you can stretch out and relax in the evening.They are simply one small utilitarian lounge/kitchen room with some hanging space below the stairs and a small bathroom on the ground floor. From here a staircase ascends into the roof space with just enough room for two single beds, no wardrobe space or dressing table and lighting from a Velux window and a small window looking rearwards from the cottage.

Room Tip: Does not appear to be any difference between rooms.

Bought this living social deal and was not disappointed - friendly staff and excellent food and great beers to choose from. A lovely self catering cottage set in a great location. A walkers paradise - walks to suit everyone starting from the Inn, or explorer the area by car.

Went for a run out and on the way home stopped at the Pendle Inn, had a great night lots of locals it was how pubs used to be very friendly.
Had a really good Filet Steak and trimmings, beer selection is very good, with a nice log fire.
Menu was very good, plenty of choice all with Pendle "witch" type names, certainly we will go back again now there are light nights.
The young lady serving was so good, she could not have done more she was ace.
You will not make a mistake visiting the Pendle Inn.

We have visited the Pendle Inn several times now with our 2 kids age 6 & 10 & our dog. The food is always great. The kids love the kids meals - the kids chicken is really nice & its cheap for kids meals too. They have a good selection of specials as well as real ales. The portions are very big though! My husband got the Hunters chicken & the size of the chicken breast was huge!
Set in Barley - its a great 'locals' pub but often busy with walkers from Pendle Hill. Great, friendly service too. Can't fault the place. They also have a more formal restaurant which we've never been in but I'm sure its just as good.

We stayed here using a living social voucher which entitled us to two nights accommodation, a three course meal each on the first night and a bottle of wine, all for less than £140! The location at the foot of Pendle hill was delightful, perfect location for a stroll up to the top of the hill. The pub itself is very good indeed, real fires, real ales and a very, very good menu at reasonable price. The self catering cottage/annex rooms were decent, however a little easy to hear the neighbours! Overall I would definitely recommend this for a weekend getaway!

The Pendle Inn has a very good menu themed to the areas most well known feature - the witches of Pendle.
There are plenty of places to visit nearby and what staying you can take advantage of the well cooked and locally sourced food. It is a very pleasant change to find such a great restaurant in the middle of nowhere which it feels when you step outside on a dark night.
The restaurant is well located in the modern conservatory and the tables can be arranged to suit a great many types of occasion.
A genuine diamond in the rough.
The bar area is warmed by an open fire and is very welcoming if a bit cramped, as the locals do tend to congregate round the bar instead of siting down which means a fair bit of manoeuvring to get to the bar especially if disabled.
All in all excellent - thank you for an excellent visit
