The location, food & staff were exceptional, we had a fantastic time with lots to see nearby, do go for a little walk by Stoneyhurst even if you don't normally go on walks, its very close. Good selection of food, one step up from normal pub fare and proper real ales were available. The view from the room of the mist rising over the Ribble valley in the morning were magical.

Would have given a 5 if it was based on service and food quality but the room, whilst beautiful (room 16), was let down by the noise from the tv mounted on the adjacent rooms wall being right by our bed and a lot of plumbing noise coming through. ( Minor grumbles, the pillows were too soft, there was a little grumbling between my husband and myself at only one pack of biscuits between us! These however are just our personal quirks and not huge things!)

Did let the hotel know about the noise, not sure if they can sort the tv's location out. Would highly recommend.

Attended a 50th
Lovely function room food ok
Staff all the way through lovely and friendly and nothing too much trouble
Unfortunately it all went wrong seconds before leaving
I wished to pay cash and the very friendly lady on reception presented us with a bill for over £216 includiding TWO nights b@b and lots of bar activity
We only stopped one night and there was no bar activity as i pay as you go with cash
I had noticed the day before people putting drinks on room accounts with no signing for or production of keys
The friendly and helpful lady apologised and went to get someone else
Enter Miss Mardy Stropp who, in fairness said take all the items off the bill but became agitated when the poor lady, clearly embarrassed admitted she didnt know how to do this
Mardy then took the cash and cameback ages latter and thrust a crumpled £5 note in my hand
I enquired about a receipt and was told she couldnt produce one
I stated given the fact that i was paying by cash and a bill for £216 v £95 was produced i would require something and a debate took place on the merits of a receipt
Afte much discussion Mardy said oh i will do you a receipt ! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Mardy produced the same receipt with all ancilliary extras scrubbed outand paid written on but no name as to who Mardy is so i still have no reliable receipt
Refuse room 5 unless you desire looking out onto the delights of os a flat roof, extractor housing and a brick wall, still charged same price as countryside views though

Room Tip: Refuse room 5 unless you desire looking out onto the delights of os a flat roof, extractor housing and a brick wall, same price as countryside views

We held our wedding at the Shireburn Arms in March 2014. We had visited the Shireburn Arms previously and it is a wonderful charming coaching inn with fabulous views. The bar area is a relaxed place to drink and eat and the function room is a bright, airy, contemporary room with fab views and everything you could wish for in a function room. Our party occupied all the bedrooms, each being furnished to a high standard, clean and very comfortable.
The staff could not have been more helpful, particularly Nichola and Susanne. The food was amazing and delivered to all the wedding guests like clockwork.
All our guests commented on what an amazing venue and we could not have wished for anything better for our special day. Thank you Shireburn soooo much!!

Had Sunday lunch here this week, just me and my better half......very cosy place, lovely staff. The whole place was alive and very busy...we were told that they had a Christening party for 70 in a restaurant at the back and a birthday group in another area so were surprised they were as attentive as they were even though extremely busy. A good sense of humour from our waiter who was efficient and we didn't wait long for food to arrive. I had Goosnargh chicken breast with a Hunter's sauce, creamy mash and seasonal veg ( carrots, green beans, cauli ) glass white wine, my partner had a bowland pie with puff pastry crust, seasonal veg and chunky chips with a pint of lemonade with lime. We usually don't have a starter or dessert as we are full with a main course......reasonable price at £32 for the lot...can't complain at that eh? Good, no frills food in lovely surroundings and stunning countryside scenery. Yet another eatery worth a visit in Lancashire.

I visited to attend a three day course, set in one if the function rooms of the venue.

The setting was ideal for our small group and I would certainly recommend it to anyone in need of such a venue.

The room was a reasonable size and nicely set out. The bed was extremely comfortable, although the pillows were much to soft for my liking. The en suite included a bath with shower over and had been done out very nicely. The breakfast included was a good size and cooked to order, to a very high quality.

I ate at the venue on one evening. While a touch on the pricey side, it was in line with what I expected of this type of establishment and was very nice, both in presentation and taste. The cask ale was also extremely nice.

I found the service to be exceptional. All of the staff were friendly and could not do enough for you. Definitely top marks there!

Due to the nature of my stay, I unfortunately didn't get out to see any of the surroundings, although some of the views from the venue were quite stunning.

Altogether, a very nice venue in a beautiful setting, with good accommodation, great food and fantastic staff. Definitely to be recommended.
