Good Hotel Guide Review

A home-away-from-home mood permeates this ‘lively, friendly’ stone-built pub-with-rooms in a Ribble valley village. One of Thwaites Inns of Character, it focuses on providing country-style accommodation, ‘confident, well-prepared’ cooking, and decent cask ales. The restaurant, ‘clearly the pub’s main attraction’, celebrates local produce (Lancashire meats and cheese, especially) in dishes such as roasted pork belly, cauliflower purée, garlic mash, apple soup, crispy crackling, sage jus. Upstairs, each of the well-appointed bedrooms is styled differently, but thoughtful extras (fresh milk, tea- and coffee-making facilities, home-made biscuits, ‘fleecy bathrobes’) come as standard. Some rooms, facing the road, may not suit light sleepers. Leisurely starts at weekends: breakfast is served till 10 am.

Guest comments

'Our room was a reasonable size, good storage space, ground-floor and facing the road but not too noisy. Fleecy bathrobes. Good shower. Friendly welcome. Dinner was excellent, in a local Lancashire style. Surprisingly the weakness was breakfast. Radio background music at breakfast - but our table was next to the radio -we were able to turn it down. ' - Edward Mirzoeff - March, 2016
