Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A lively spot’, this ‘friendly’ stone-built pub-with-rooms (Thwaites Inns of Character) sits in a rural village in the Ribble valley. ‘Confident, well-prepared’ dishes, perhaps maple-glazed crispy belly pork, spiced red cabbage, Lancashire cheese potato, cider and sage, are ‘clearly the pub’s main attraction’ – ask for a tasting board of cask ales to match. Country-style bedrooms are all different, but each is provided with fresh milk, tea- and coffee-making facilities, home-made biscuits, ‘fleecy bathrobes and a good shower’. ‘Our reasonably sized room faced the road, but it wasn’t too noisy.’ Breakfast is served till 10 am at the weekend.
Hill Top is a time-capsule of Beatrix Potter's life. Every room contains a reference to a picture in one of her tales.
