The Cartford Inn, Little Eccleston
One of the UKs top gastro-pubs, this 17th Century riverside coaching inn boasts accolades from the Michelin and Good Food Guides. Simple yet creative dishes are the mainstay of the menu using quality ingredients from local suppliers all prepared with care whether its a tempting starter, sharing platter or three-course meal. Consistently hits the mark.
The Bay Horse Inn, Ellel, Lancaster
Run by the Wilkinson family, this country inn has won several awards in recent times. But that doesnt mean theyve rested on their laurels. Chef Craig has worked in the trade since he was a nipper and his honest food is both simple and enjoyable. He has created a flavoursome menu which reads like an inventory of Lancashire produce.
The Hop Vine, Burscough
A village pub thats the heart of the community which champions great food, fine wines and beer from its own brewery housed in what used to be a stable block from the days when it was a coaching inn. Superior pub food is fresh and generously sized, offering a modern take on classic ingredients.
