“Another great stay”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

This was our third stay. We love this place. The rooms are beautiful, the staff fantastic and the food is simply amazing. Great selection of beer and wine and the views are beautiful. We cannot wait to return and will be doing so very soon.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I took my father here, not sure what to expect. What we got was a delight. Great food & wine, reasonable prices. One word of advice - get there early as the place fills up quick! Oh, and if you can make it on a sunny day (ha!) the grounds are great.

“Inn at Whitewell”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Having visited the whitewell on many occasions I thought it best to support and thank the team. I booked 5 rooms for my work colleagues so it's great to have the opinion of all that stayed overnight. We made use of the boardroom with the technology needed to hold a business or private meeting. We ate lunch in the bar twice with an evening meal in the restaurant along with breakfast. Everyone found the experience 100% perfect, the ambiance, staff, setting, history, bedrooms of the highest standard make this the Inn to visit. The food is supportive of local producers who I am sure are proud to see their meat be served literally a field away! You must remember the inn has a wonderful history and the heritage remains today and should never be changed or be compromised. This review is a collective response of five people living all over the UK with ages ranging from 35 to 55 years. Would recommend to anyone.

“Essence of "Shabby Genteel"”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Nobody but nobody does that peculiarly English shabby gentility better than the Inn at Whitewell. That said, there is nothing shabby about the accommodation, which we did not sample on this visit. This is a popular venue (perhaps THE venue) for wedding receptions in "Posh Lancashire" but the absence of these during our second weekend-after-New-Year meant that the service was even better than usual. Service is professional, intelligent and unobtrusive and the food is first-class. Pricey perhaps but excellent value.

“A gem in the Trough of Bowland”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Inn at Whitewell never disappoints. I've eaten here several times and each visit is memorable. Beautiful location, excellent food, a fantastic mix of upper crust people on a day out and your everyday walkers with dogs etc. Relaxing atmosphere. Faded grandeur - just the ticket. Great fires to welcome you on a chilly day. Fantastic view if the weather allows you to sit outside with a caffetiere/glass of wine. I will never tire of visiting this place - it is lovely.
