On the outskirts of Ramsbottom, this small inn on the village green was recently well-renovated and has a “good beer garden”. “Any lack of polish service-wise is compensated for by the staff’s enthusiasm and willingness”. “Good quality, traditional British food, with regional variations, and some home-grown vegetables, works well”.

With investment from the Daniel Thwaites chain, this recently refurbished ‘food pub’, with fine views, is distinctive not only for its “great nosh”, but also its ‘edible beer garden’ (with outdoor kitchen, polytunnels and children’s area) plus “the added benefit that they train young people as part of their mission” (in supporting marginalised people into work).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Owner's description

Traditional country pub with fine ales, fine wine and good food.

The pub was built in the mid 18th century and stands on the village green in an attractive part of rural West Lancashire, it has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and is a popular local watering hole.

It has consistently been awarded accolades for its food being Lancashire Dining Pub of the year in the Good Pub Guide in 1999, 2001, 2005 and 2006,2012. With the farm shop next door, the kitchen uses local produce from the fertile Lancashire plain and some of our own meat grown on the farm in Parbold.  We welcome drinkers and diners alike.

In the summer there is a large garden at the back of the pub which is a real sun trap with a well tended but unconventional bowling green, a games lawn and wildlife area.
