With magnificent views to Pendle Hill from the paved patio, this old, hill-top stone inn deep in the Lancashire countryside is a real find. The rambling interior has some fine panelling, real fires and stone floors, whilst chic accommodation and extensive dining facilities mean it's popular for weddings. Reliable beers from Moorhouse's are behind the bar. The wide-ranging contemporary menu features starters like devilled crab, salmon and brown shrimps; or duck spring rolls via mains of pies, puddings and pasta to the farm selection choices of dry-aged beef with slow-roast tomatoes; or Lancashire rump of lamb with hotpot potatoes. Sticky toffee sundae is one of the tasty desserts on offer.
