I've been a big fan of the Ribble valley pub group. But this location was a let down. Service was sloppy. Two mistakes were made on our order. The chips meant to have been cooked in dripping were pale and tasteless. My partner was less than impressed with her meal.

5 of us arrived for dinner at 6.30 pm Easter Monday having enjoyed a wonderful hike near Keswick. My daughter has a strong intolerence to salmon and has previously enjoyed the fish pie in other Ribble Valley Inns because they list the contents on the menu and specifically do not include salmon in the dish. When her meal arrived it... More

We have visited here many times and keep giving it another chance. Went for lunch today and again, completely average, but still overpriced. Would definitely call in for a drink, but too expensive for food.

Called for lunch on our way home from Kirkby Lonsdale and had a most delightful lunch. We experienced a delicious Lancashire Hotpot and a Bruno Fish Pie - both were very well presented and tasty. The restaurant was sleek and the staff very polite and helpful. Will return later in the year.

Called in on the way to Kirkby Lonsdale for quick lunch, we had two open sandwiches on granary bread which was very fresh and beautiful with smoked salmon and lots of prawns with small dish of Marie Rose sauce. We had plenty of salad as accompaniment. We also ordered a bowl of chips which were crispy and hot. Beautifully presented,... More

This place is unfortunately a victim of its own success. We have had 3 meals over the past year. The first was great. This time was not so great.

Description
The Highwayman has been part of The Ribble Valley Inns since 2007 and in June 2014 re-opened following a full refurbishment. Visitors to the Highwayman will enjoy a wonderful relaxing environment offering true Lancashire hospitality. Celebrate the great British summer in the beautifully appointed garden terrace for al fresco dining, whilst crackling log fires inside make it the ideal winter dining and drinking destination too. From cocktails on the lawn to hearty meals by the fire, the Highwayman is a truly iconic gastro haven for all seasons.
