Good breakfast & warm welcome from staff. As it says above, nicely decorated, large hotel room with fab bathroom featuring a rolltop bath, his & hers double sinks and large double shower, but the cheap mattress and subsequently poor sleep let it down.

The room we stayed in was lovely, spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The food in the pub was brilliant, and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was above the bar and you could hear the noise from the bar as if it was people in your living room at home. It was...

The White bull, lovely location in the heart of the Ribble Valley. This pub/restaurant serves the local community and guests. What is not to like? Sunday lunch (pre-booked table). No attention to detail at all. The manager seems to work hard but not so smart. The serving staff where there but not in! Our order taken and delivered wrongly. The...

My wife and I went one lunchtime, and had a fabulous meal. The sea bream was cooked to perfection. We could not fault it. Although the starter could have fed an army. The manager was very pleasant and attentive. A very pleasant place. We will be going back !

Just enjoyed a lovely meal at the White Bull. The food was delicious , the service was spot on and the hotel was modern and nicely done out. We both had a Sunday roast, me pork and my husband beef and it could not have been better. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I stayed at the nearby Ribblesdale Park for 4 days over New Years and The White Bull was our "local" for the duration. The staff and management were extremely welcoming and we felt very much at home. A tab was offered each time we went, we ate and drank there each day with the landlord remembering us...

Called in this weekend, the first time in a few years, and it's changed for the better, fresher appearance, and brighter throughout. Great selection of food on offer, with the bonus of a Christmas menu. We ordered food, and it came, quite quickly, and I'll just say, it was outstanding, the only downside was it was a good 45 minute...

Called in for lunch on a weekend break, lovely clean establishment, bar staff were great, polite & pleasant, the food was delicious, wild mushroom starter and shoulder of lamb for mains, too full for desert and very reasonably priced, would definitely recommend.

Called here for an evening meal whilst travelling through Gisburn. Had no booking but was quickly seated and served. Four main meals were very good indeed. No complaints whatsoever about the food or service. Only grumble was that the room was cold. However when I mentioned this the radiator was put on immediately. Would eat here again if in the...

A very friendly welcome in a very well presented little pub. The food was excellent as was the service. We shared the meat platter all of which was spot on. The homemade scratchings are a must for anyone that visits as well. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. The guest rooms look nice as well and reasonably priced....
