Well, that’s not the news we were hoping for. Following the Government’s announcement, we find ourselves in ‘Tier 3’, which means we will have to wait a little longer until we can open our doors again. We were desperately hoping this wouldn’t be the case.
The tiers are due to be reviewed on the 16th December, so we’re keeping everything crossed for some positive news then but sadly, we won’t be able to honour any bookings that have already been made between now and the 16th December.
However, all is not lost! Thanks so much for your enthusiastic support over the past few weeks with our ‘Click and Collect’ meals. We’re chuffed to bits with how things have gone so far and have really appreciated your positive feedback. We’ll now be looking to introduce some festive dishes to our menu, so follow the link below for all the info and to place an order:
In these tricky times, your messages of support have meant the world to us, so thank you. We’ll keep in touch with any news but in the meantime, please take care and keep everything crossed that we’ll be able to welcome you back to the pub again in a few weeks.
Welcome to the website for the Highwayman
Sitting in Lancashire but only a few miles from the Cumbrian and Yorkshire borders, the Highwayman started life as an 18th - century coaching inn, in the perfect position to offer comfort and respite to those on their travels. Thankfully it retains much of its original charm.
On entering you're welcomed by the bar which forms the heart of the pub. A mix of flagged stone and wood floors, rugs, plants and two open fires make for a cosy, comfortable spot to enjoy a drink with friends (or strangers) and a bite to eat if you fancy.
Carrying on through and the pub opens up; just a little, into a garden room with picture lined walls and doors opening out onto the walled terrace, the perfect place to enjoy on more pleasant days.
Back in the pub and you'll also find a private dining room. It's a lovely room with a homely feel created by the wall of books, plants and nic nacs. It comfortably seats up to 16 people for a private family meal or a business lunch, or, with a bit of furniture rejigging it would also suit perfectly a small gathering of up to 30 or so.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
AllTrails have kindly created a circular walk from the pub to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You can view the walk details via any of the routes below. (varying levels of tech savyness required -Ed)
