Location and contact

The Highwayman has been part of The Ribble Valley Inns since 2007 and in June 2014 re-opened following a full refurbishment. Visitors to the Highwayman will enjoy a wonderful relaxing environment offering true Lancashire hospitality. Celebrate the great British summer in the beautifully appointed garden terrace for al fresco dining, whilst crackling log fires inside make it the ideal winter dining and drinking destination too. From cocktails on the lawn to hearty meals by the fire, the Highwayman is a truly iconic gastro haven for all seasons.

Called for Sunday lunch, without booking, and the staff couldn't have made us more welcome. Started with their now famous cauliflower fritters which were beautiful. Their roast pork was a picture to behold when it came.
