This place is very nicely decorated and has good-sounding things on the menu, but it really stops there. There is no atmosphere at all and the staff are very robotic and insincere in their interactions, seeming like they'd rather be anywhere else. The food was...More

Evening meal for four for son's birthday (all adults). My wife ordered Lancashire Hotpot which, when it eventually arrived was a great disappointment, the potato topping was undercooked and eventually substituted for french fries with the meat resembling pulled lamb - not good! I had...More

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.
