Walking Routes

There’s no better way to spend the weekend than by enjoying the great British countryside while working up an appetite for fine ale and quality food. Thankfully our inn is located in the heart of the Lancashire and within the Ribble Valley which means we’re the perfect base to explore the stunning scenery on two feet.

Below you will find details of a number of great pub walks in the Ribble Valley and Lancashire. So whether you’re looking for a walking break in Lancashire or a leisurely walk closer to Mellor to fill a lazy Sunday afternoon; there is a pub walk for everyone.

Once you return from discovering Lancashire by foot you will be welcomed by our friendly team, a seasonal menu of quality local food and a refreshing pint of ale.
