Charming grounds with a lake and a fountain lead up to this beautifully restored 16C country house. The Scandic-style restaurant is a truly striking space, with its blond wood tables, floor-to-ceiling windows and tempting cheese room – and the smoothness of the well-drilled chefs in the open kitchen is a sight to behold.
This extensively refurbished Victorian house sits on the edge of the picturesque Ribble Valley and comes with a lovely fire-lit lounge and a bright, glitzy bar. An overnight stay in one of the stylish bedrooms is all part of the experience but it’s really the food that lures most people in.
It stands beside a small toll bridge on the River Wyre and comes with a deli, a farm shop – and five greenhouses for all-year dining. Cooking is gutsy and many of the tried-and-tested classics come with a twist. The owner played a big part in the interior design, particularly in the bold, boutique bedrooms.
A delightful pub hidden away on a narrow lane. Downstairs it’s all flagged floors, low beams and open fires; the antique-furnished upstairs is a little more elegant. Refined, skilful cooking sees modern versions of traditional pub dishes. For a special occasion book the chef’s table. Bedrooms are luxurious.
A smartly refurbished pub with pastel-painted wood panelling and modern furnishings, in a lovely Ribble Valley village. Bag a spot at one of the U-shaped banquettes or on the sunny terrace overlooking the Square and dine on reassuringly robust, seasonal dishes. Service is friendly and stylish bedrooms await.
Dine surrounded by exposed bricks, reclaimed wood and graffiti art at this passionately run cocktail bar and restaurant set beside one of Europe’s tallest working windmills. Hearty, wholesome cooking has a refined edge; the à la carte menu is the most innovative.
A charming low-beamed, flag-floored restaurant run by a keen couple: a little corner of Italy in Lancashire. Extensive menu of hearty homemade dishes; try the tasty pastas. Top quality local and imported produce; well-chosen wine list.
A charming part-15C blacksmith's named after the stepping stones over the beck. The elegant restaurant has a superb beamed ceiling, a minstrel’s gallery and a medieval feel. Creative, original dishes feature on two tasting menus and come with wine pairings. The best bedrooms are in the outbuildings.
The sign might proclaim ‘The White Swan’ but to the locals this traditional-looking pub will always be the Mucky Duck – so-called because the coal miners used to stop here for a pint on their way home from work.
