The good pub guide review
This is an imposing 17th-c stone building set among the rolling green hills of the Lune Valley. Both the food and drink in this Brunning & Price pub are highly regarded and there's always a friendly mix of customers. The stylish and cosy flagstoned interior is nicely divided into intimate corners, with a couple of large log fires, wooden, leather-seated or tartan chairs around dark tables, button-back or leather wall banquettes and a bustling atmosphere. There are some large photos on the walls and interesting modern lighting. You'll find Phoenix Brunning & Price Original plus Hawkshead Red, Kirkby Lonsdale Tiffin Gold, Lancaster Black and Moorhouses Pendle Witches Brew on handpump, ten wines by the glass, 36 gins and 21 whiskies served by friendly, efficient staff; background music and TV. French windows open out to a big terrace and lovely gardens with smart rattan-style furniture, taking in the pretty views.
The good pub guide food review
Pleasing food using seasonal, local produce includes sandwiches and 'light bites', chicken liver pâté with apricot chutney, crispy baby squid with sweet chilli sauce, cauliflower fritters with curried mayonnaise, pea and mint tortellini with garden pea velouté and asparagus, gammon with chargrilled pineapple, egg and chips, salmon and smoked haddock fishcake, steak burger with grilled bacon, coleslaw and fries, and puddings such as summer pudding with clotted cream and lemon cheesecake with raspberry ripple ice-cream.
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 enjoy a wonderful relaxing environment offering true Lancashire hospitality.
You can 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 terrace to hearty meals by the fire, the Highwayman is truly an iconic gastro haven for all seasons.
Our head chef delivers a menu to embrace the local food heroes of the three counties, with the Highwayman situated just in Lancashire and a stones throw from the borders of Yorkshire and Cumbria.
