Our cosy, chilled-out country pub in the Ribble Valley.

Proud to be one of the VERY FEW independent, no-tie pubs in the whole of Lancashire!

We are a small team in a big inn…… open usually on Friday, Saturday and Sunday…….

Let me introduce us!

Husband, wife, Basset, a couple of chefs, a couple of gorgeous waitresses and that’s it……

We have a delicious, gutsy, flavoursome menu, using predominantly locally sourced or home-grown produce.

We love excellent meat….. top quality beef, pork, lamb…… heavenly flavoursome food……
Actually we grow our own herbs and they are all full-sized and busting with deliciousness!….. and we know how to use them!

The inn was once a farm way back in the mid 1700’s, but found its way to feeding and watering the passers-by and found that a few bob was to be made so the conversion into a full-time inn ensued.

These days we have created a cosy, chilled out feel to this big old building.

We have three beautiful guest rooms for you to stay with us

We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) of Bowland and the heady delights of the Ribble Valley; Clitheroe & Whalley, as well as the gorgeous villages of the area surround us!
We inhabit the sleepy, tiny hamlet of Bashall Eaves.

Our inn is lovely; understated quality and luxury.
Mismatched hardwood furniture, handmade & re-upholstered (most of it) by the host Jonathan, quirky, unique, purchasable too! (In the 16th century Coach House which houses Jonathan’s workshop & showroom for his fab furniture!)

This is Harvey…… the pub’s Basset Hound….. he’s often found looking down on visitors from his window seat up over the pubs side door!

We allow doggies in the bar…… we love dogs, but not everyone does, so just the designated area please….. they will normally be fussed over, cuddled, given some paddywack and a bowl of water while you tuck in to your rabbit ragout!

We aren’t open all-day, every-day…. and we are rather pleased about this!
Generally speaking we open Friday & Saturday 12-2.30 then 6-9 and Sunday 12-6…… or thereabouts! Except for the odd bank holiday Monday which cocks the week up and we open on the Monday and close on a Wednesday instead….. or when it’s the Christmas time fortnight and nobody has a bloomin’ clue what day it is anyways!

But you can generally guarantee we will be open for lunch & supper from Friday……. any other times, just give us a quick ring and we’ll let you know! 01254 826227

Menu’s change pretty frequently at our own whims and desires and usually after we’ve spoken to the butcher / fishmonger about something lovely…. we don’t run our restaurant as a set menu planned 6 months in advance, we plan ours around what’s excellent that week……. our customers love it! So do we!
Everything is freshly prepared on site…..Freshly made breads daily, the biscuits in the rooms are usually still warm from the oven before they get devoured!…… all the dishes are prepared carefully with ingredients that we handle ourselves, so any dietary issues you may have are simple for us to negotiate around (but notice is always useful you know!)

Dip in…… we don’t bite.
