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)
