Summary

“Really fresh food and the warmest Irish hospitality” has made this Anglo-Irish café, “conveniently located opposite the train station” a firm favourite in the Ribble Valley. A major refurb in 2017 doubled its capacity and added an Irish gin bar, enabling more ambitious cooking and Fri/Sat evening opening. Top Tip: “the signature fish pie is never off the menu”.

Summary

“Bijou outfit producing great food in a sophisticated setting, despite being located opposite the railway station”. Originally a café/deli, this year it underwent a major refurb, creating more space and adding on ‘Reilly’s Gin Bar’; at dinner now, the British/Irish cuisine is firmly of ‘restaurant’ aspiration (with prices to match). Vegetarian and vegan menus are a feature.

Summary

Breda Murphy’s marvellous deli/café serves up “anything from fine dining to delicious delicatessen goodies – all with an Irish twist”. It’s “always busy” (sometimes “invaded by ladies in tweed”), but the victuals are “very edible”, and the terrace is an especially “nice place to spend time when the sun shines on the Ribble Valley”.

Summary

This Ribble Valley staple (plus popular deli) continues to elicit odes to its “exquisite” dishes and “oh-so-moreish” puds; still a “pity it's not open more in the evenings, but presumably (Ballymaloe-trained owner) Ms Murphy and co. enjoy a life away from the kitchen!”
