Review on Waddington Arms

Waddington Arms originally an old coaching inn is situated in the centre of the village from which it takes its name, famous because King Henry VI stayed nearby at Waddington Hall before being betrayed to the Yorkists in 1465. After a period of refurbishment the pub re-opened in 1994 under the same team behind The Emporium and Mittan Hall.

The excellent menu, features many local rural specialities and is complimented by an ever-changing specials board. Products are sourced locally wherever possible and could feature starters of tomato and orange soup or a flavoursome duck and rabbit terrine. Traditional hearty main courses follow, as in Lancashire hot pot, fish pie, or fish, chips and mushy peas. In the bar there are hand drawn cask ales, continental lagers, a famous Irish stout, as well as 26 different wines, selected by wine merchants, Byrne's of Clitheroe, many of which are available by the glass.

There are attractive outside gardens and terraces to relax in or dine al fresco, together with occasional live music events, garden games and barbecues. The Waddington Arms features six smart individually designed bedrooms which provide a comfortable base for exploring the lovely Ribble Valley in Lancashire.
