Again another special deal and it did not fail to impress with the quality of food. They have just received the "Taste of Lancashire"award again this year jus recently in Blackpool. Food was outstanding, all local produce and skilfully cooked and delicious to eat. A must to visit this pub, but the rooms to stay the night are small, comfortable and clean. We also went in August this year where the meal was excellent and the wines superb and not expensive. grouse was on the menu and was delicious and although the menu was not extensive the quality was outstanding and well presented. The room was small, clean and comfortable for our 1 night stay but more than 3 nights might have been different!

This is not a Gastro Pub or a Restaurant but a traditional Village Pub that has retained its character. Cheerful landlord and lady who just want to give a fabulous service with good local beers and above all good quality local produce cooked in traditional old fashioned ways with a tweak of traditional old Lancashire recipes. Fabulous food that even Jay Raynor gives a good review. Must not be missed. Highly recommended and not expensive.

Fantastic meal (set lunch menu) for less than £11 pp, with a good wine in a very modern bar & restaurant. We sat outside on a glorious sunny day and the place was very busy, mainly with business lunches. Highly recommended as the food and service were excellent.

We live around the corner and are extremely lucky to have the Waggon as our local. The food is top restaurant quality with the Chef (Steve) having an impressive professional background in some swanky restaurants and hotels. Excellent value.

What a heaven after a long walk. Just completed a long 4 hour walk through parts of the Trough of Bowland in muddy cow splattered fields, swollen becks and the slippery stepping stones across the swollen river beside trader . After a quick clean up by the car and changed muddy boots, we entered the Inn to be welcomed by a roaring fire by the front door on this wet and miserable day. We got the last table, ordered drinks and a meal. The staff were very friendly, helpful and chirpy on this awlful day. The meal was excellent. Lunch we had was their famous Whitewell Fish Pie, Fish and Chips with mushy peas and a Goats cheese salad. All food was delicious, as commented by all and at no time did anyone complain about our slightly muddy clothes. This was a welcome rest after a long walk. We will be looking to staying sometime in this Inn and trying their proper Restaurant overlooking the river as it would be a lovely retreat for a romantic weekend. Highly recommended. Excellent level of service and good value at lunchtime. Be warned that lunch orders stop promptly at 2pm. Even 5 minutes late you will be disappointed with sandwiches (although super smoked salomn!) and you will miss the excellent lunch menu - so be warned - be on time.

My wife and I have dined here regularly for some years now and have never been disappointed. The owner, Amie, who runs the business with her partner, Angus, is also the head chef, and produces a varied menu to suit all tastes and appetites, with daily changes on the "specials" board. What never varies is the quality of the food and its presentation. The staff, as one would expect in any good establishment, are attentive and courteous. What sets them apart here is their natural friendliness - your welcome will be genuine. The beautiful, distinctive building dates back to before the beginning of the 18th century and is steeped in history, with witchcraft connections and even murder, trial and hanging all having taken place on the premises (don't worry - these were over 300 years ago). At a height of nearly 1200 feet it has views looking down over Oldham and Manchester, but also far beyond to West Lancashire, Cheshire, Snowdonia and even to Shropshire - Bredon Hill often being visible. It has a beer garden, serves well looked-after real ale, and the original oak-beamed bar, which serves as an ante-room to the restaurant, has the original stone floors and an inscription regarding the aforementioned murder on 17th August 1704. At home I have a cookery book by Nigel Slater entitled "Real Food". If you can't do it yourself then come here for it! There are sophisticated dishes on the menu, of course, but the hand-cut chips are to die for!

Decent food if a little expensive. Some in our group were made to feel rather uncomfortable by the religious iconography in the pub. These things belong in a church, not places of entertainment.

I have been using this restaurant for years, both for family events and meals for two. The restaurant is off the beaten track on a hill overlooking the colne valley with marvellous views. Most of the food is prepared on the premises and is well cooked and served by friendly staff. There is a wide range of Sunday lunch dishes as well as the normal a la carte menu. I make a point of phoning on the day to book a table because the restaurant does get busy at times, although food is also served in the bar.

I have eaten here several times recently with my husband and children. The menu is varied & extensive the portion sizes are more than ample and everything is very reasonably priced. Most importantly though, the food is delicious. The pub itself has beautiful views, traditional cosy surroundings, clean facilities and helpful friendly staff. The only downside is that it gets extremely busy at weekends so It's probably best to book in advance. I will definately be returning!
