Dog-friendly, welcoming fires and good pub grub

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Until the 1960s, this was the smallest pub in Lancashire. The long, low, creeper-festooned old gritstone building is crammed with local photos, collectables and artefacts spread through a clutch of separate drinking areas; partly flagged floors are warmed by roaring fires in winter. Its appeal is enhanced by the choice of ales and a reliable raft of home-made pub grub: perhaps a beef and onion sandwich, a salad or a jacket potato will hit the spot; otherwise look to the main for beef lasagne, chilli con carne, braised lamb shank, sea bass risotto, a T-bone steak or grilled aubergine, courgette and pepper stack.
