AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu
Beer festival
Open all year

This thriving village inn is set in the tranquil valley of the River Douglas and close to some lovely rambles on Parbold Hill. A pub that caters admirably for all-comers, the emphasis is on high-quality modern cooking using locally sourced seasonal produce. On the restaurant menu crispy duck egg, home-cured spiced bacon, celeriac and dashi is a typical opening gambit. Progress to roast breast of Goosnargh chicken, winter truffle and olive mash, Scottish morels; or pan-fried halibut steak, Puy lentils and warm salad of olives, tomatoes and capers. The bar menu is equally appealing; perhaps steak, ale and mushroom pie, mushy peas and triple-cooked chips. The traditionally styled pub is a popular village local, with an ever-changing array of beers from local microbreweries and farmhouse ciders, while the annual Early May Bank Holiday beer festival attracts up to 2,000 people to a huge marquee.
