Have been several times before, and as always the service and staff were fabulous. This place has such a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere and you always get a warm welcome. The food as usual was delicious and plentiful so sadly only two courses were consumed...More

Well cooked but very small portions. Pricey, and VERY slow service although our waitress did eventually apologise. Afterwards I realised I'd been overcharged for my "starter main" which was on the menu for £11 and on my bill was £13.50. Too small an amount to...More

Superb Sunday lunch of the tenderest roast beef, and plenty of it with Yorkshire puds, roast and creamed potatoes, cauliflower cheeses, mange tout and carrots. Delicious puds too. Lovely round table for nine by an open log fire. Excellent and friendly service.

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.
