Local Dining and Pubs

Local dining and pubs

The Ribchester Arms

Probably the most popular pub and eatery in the village of Ribchester, able to attract people from a wide geographical catchment. The food is consistently good but, for us, the warm and friendly staff provides the biggest draw.

Huntley’s Country Stores

Free car parking, maze (seasonal), food hall with local produce, restaurant, and resident pianist, all contribute to making Huntley’s a fun trip out.

The Aspinall Arms

A favourite for walkers, cyclists and anglers, the Aspinall features an open fire and flagged floors in a beautiful riverside location. The beautiful landscaped garden and extensive menu make it a popular local.  


Popular with the locals, you will find real Italian food prepared by real Italian people, all in a wonderful venue. If you are deciding which restaurant, a quick peek at the Tiggis website will give a taste of the atmosphere here. 


The Café at Stydd

Stydd Gardens is not your typical garden centre and the Café at Stydd is by no means an ordinary café. Seated amidst the plants within a beautiful green house, enjoy afternoon tea or choose from the lovely menu created by their award winning chef.

The White Bull

The White Bull has recently reopened following a major refurbishment. A traditional British village pub serving its community and visitors with quality fresh food menus and an extensive range of drinks.

Stanley House

Originally ‘The manor house of Mellor’, Stanley House is a Grade II listed building in a beautiful greenbelt area of the Valley. If you fancy a touch of class, this Michelin star rated restaurant, along with Mr Fred’s bar will not disappoint. 


On a previous visit, our wine waiter claimed he could taste any wine in his cellar and tell us the location of the actual vine! The extraordinary food and impeccable service creates a truly unforgettable experience. You can read about the countless national awards this place has won.

Tom's Table

Described as an easygoing destination with a French-inspired menu providing lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Both Tom and Kate have achieved the perfect balance of in a beautiful part of Clitheroe. Make sure a visit to these guys is on your list!


The Emporium

 The Emporium is part café, brasserie and wine bar and part interior design store, making the décor as delectable as the food. Make the most of 'Beat the Clock Pizza' where the time you order between 4.30pm and 6.30pm is the price you pay for your pizza.
