Our party of 12 sociable cyclists stayed here for one night. We all said it was ok for our needs but we would not return. The Inn is potentially lovely but is very run down, needs some money spent. Our welcome from owner's partner Vicky was delightful and bubbly but all the other staff were a bit grumpy or in... More

Such a beautiful village with the majority of the buildings being hundreds of years old. The pub is also one of the oldest and was pleasant with a large beer garden. Whilst it might have been dated, that's part of its charm in such a quaint village. Good clean toilets and polite staff.

Desperately in need of a refurb, the pub is dated and tired. Our room was not clean and did not even have central heating - just a portable radiator and a storage heater - with no heating at all in the bathroom. The chap behind the bar was a complete misery who was clearly sick and tired of the hospitality... More

A traditional village pub, complete with real fires and real ale, set in a small village high in the hills. There is a varied menu of interesting dishes and the food is good quality at a reasonable price. The service is slow though (and somewhat rude) so don't expect to have a quick meal.

The weekend had been booked well in advance of the floods but we went anyway. The pub was very welcoming with log fires burning. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. Being very old, the building has creaky doors and floorboards, nooks and crannies everywhere and is steeped in history. We ate in on both nights. Friday night was fish... More

Found the place after Googling Forest of Bowland! Splendid meal which we really enjoyed. I had the cheese and leek pie, he had burger with bacon and Stilton. If I have to criticise, ambient music would have been nice. Did feel like dining in a Doctor's waiting room!
