We stayed for 2 nights at the Red Pump Inn with two other couples and two dogs for our annual walking weekend. From our very warm welcome to our very friendly goodbye we all felt very satisfied with our stay. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, tea and coffee making tray (and a winner for me a cafetiere), bathroom stocked with toiletries, fluffy towels...... Bed was great, we both slept well! We had booked in for a meal on the Friday evening and decided very quickly to book in for the Saturday too (be warned they do get busy so if you want a table get it booked early) The dogs were allowed to be with us in certain areas of the bar and snug room which was great for us as they were able to settle while we ate. Menu was varied with enough choice for us all, they even adapted a meal for one of the party who likes her meals plain. I had the fillet steak (medium rare) which was cooked to perfection, hubby commented that it was a little underdone for him which was fine with me as I wasn't about to share!!! :-) Everyone else in the party enjoyed their food too, we all loved the cheeseboard (good variety and quantity - one of my biggest gripes is a stingy cheese board - this one is definitely not that.... ) wine is reasonably priced and a good selection of ales for the men to choose from. Plenty of walking to be done from the Inn, Fran provided us with a print out of a walk which was a little challenging in places due to rain washing the path away, but it was manageable, we did feed this info back but none of us would have missed it, views and peace time to breath from our busy lives. Jonathan, Fran and their staff are all great, very friendly and accommodating, saying goodbye to our friends in the carpark we all said we will return and soon and we haven't felt like that about a place for a few years. (ha ha sorry gang we will be back ;-)........ A little gem in wonderful countryside.
The Ribble Valley is full of wonderful places to eat but the Red Pump Inn is in my opinion one of the best. We stayed there on our wedding night as a gift from family and loved the room but the breakfast the next morning was the cherry on the top. We’ve been back three times since then and the friendly welcome and cosy atmosphere are always warming. Our last visit was for our anniversary, just the two of us. We shared the 50 day aged prime rib.. absolutely delightful! You might look at it on the menu and be scared away by the price but I absolutely assure you that You will not be dissatisfied in the slightest. We will continue to come back again and again!
We timed our visit to the red pump well, it was our 35th wedding anniversary and st Patrick's day which gave us a taste of a live band playing at the pub which was amazing. Fran and Jonathan are the perfect hosts and no request is too small, the restaurant is cosy and warm especially when the fires are lit, with amazing food and staff that certainly know what they are doing. All in all a fantastic place to eat and stay.
All round excellence. 5* food as well as 5* staff....The Red Pump Inn has a welcoming friendly atmosphere. I've been to many pubs in the ribble valley and nothing has yet compared to the Red Pump
We had a lovely evening with excellent food and drinks, the staff all helped to make the evening good by making us comfortable and getting the level of service just right. The Red Pump is a lovely old pub in beautiful surroundings and the food and drinks are first class. There are lots of steak options as the restaurant specialises in steak but there are other choices and both the fish and chicken were also excellent. Thank you for a great evening
10/10 for food quality, taste and service. We all had the 3 course Sunday Roast and we were all of the same opinion. We will recommend Red Pump Inn and we will be back!
