The Restaurant at Ribby Hall Village in Wrea Green is well known for its fine dining, celebration evenings and locally sourced produce. Now it has another string to its bow - head chef Simon Ball.


Originally from Stoke-on-Trent, but now living in Cleveleys, Simon joined Bevan Middleton and The Restaurant team at the end of May. His accolades include two AA rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand.


Simon has created a dish that’s available from The Restaurant - Rump of New Season Lamb, French style peas, dauphinoise potatoes, gem lettuce and crispy sweetbreads. It’s a perfect blend of seasonal flavours and a fine example of Simon’s commitment to good, quality dishes.
